Lady Gaga’s Netflix special, Five Foot Two, is memorable for many reasons, including the storyline which follows the pop music megastar through the trials associated with prepping for her Dallas performance at Super Bowl LI.
Now some of the history from that performance lives right here in Tampa Bay.
A jacket worn by Gaga in the second half of the performance has been installed in the lobby of the new hotel at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Reps for Hard Rock Tampa can’t say whether or not the memorabilia — which was designed by Atelier Versace and crafted by Antonio Urzi — has found a permanent home in Tampa, but they are hopeful that it won’t go anywhere.
The piece is available to view by the public right now, and it will soon be joined by another impressive of rock and roll collectible.
That piece is a 1928 Kimball Piano Company grand piano that was played by Elvis Presley while in the music room of his Graceland home in Memphis, Tennessee. Presley purchased the piano for his mother in 1955, and had it moved to his home when it would not fit into her apartment. Elvis’ wife, Priscilla Presley, decided to adorn the piano in 24K gold-leaf finish as a gift for the couple's first wedding anniversary. Hard Rock International acquired the piano in 2015 as its 80,000th piece of memorabilia, and has been waiting to place it in the Tampa hotel’s grand entrance.
