Arnel Pineda to lead guitar-smashing tradition at HRC opening



It will be a hard-driving night as Hard Rock Café (HRC) Manila holds its grand opening party with a bang — or with a “smash” — on April 30 at 7 p.m.

No less than Journey’s lead vocalist, Arnel Pineda, will join the event as the featured artist representing the Pinoy rock scene.

Hard Rock International VP of Franchise Operations and Development Anibal Fernandez, Area Vice President of Development and Operations for Asia Pacific Steve Yang, and The Bistro Group’s Chief Operating Officer John Paul Manuud will grace the event.

Limited seats will be open to the public and will be on first come, first serve basis.

Icons like Peter Townshend of The Who, Matthew Bellamy, Prince, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, and Jerry Lee Lewis among others were known to have “officially” destroyed a musical instrument during their gigs. Whether for showmanship or for other reasons, guitar smashing undoubtedly ramps up the adrenaline during concerts. And so this “tradition” continues at HRC to pay tribute to the Cafe’s history which is associated with rock legends.

The party will be kicked off by a motorcade steered by the HOG or the Harley Davidson Group Manila. After Pineda’s numbers, The Ice Bucket band, a weekly mainstay at Hard Rock Café Manila, will take center stage with their outstanding renditions of music by Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, Styx, and many more of the greatest rock idols of all time.
