Marc Carey, European Marketing Director for Hard Rock said: "We love working alongside Queen and The Mercury Pheonix Trust every year to arrange and activate Hard Rock's global 'Freddie For A Day' fundraising and awareness day. On 5 September, many cafes across Europe and further afield will be joined in celebrating the icon that was, Freddie Mercury. Here in Europe, 'Freddie For A Day' promises to give visitors a rocking' good time encouraging local fans to join in and dress up in their favourite Freddie consumes. This year, we also hope to break previous year's fundraising records and raise as much as possible for this great cause that continues to promote HIV/AIDS awareness and education around the world."


"The Mercury Phoenix Trust/Freddie For A Day partnership with Hard Rock cafes globally is becoming a wonderful fun annual event,  growing each year and bringing people together all over the world to celebrate and party on Freddie's birthday, 5th September.  Its a great fundraiser, enabling us to support numerous charities in the ongoing worldwide fight against HIV/AIDS.
