ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 16 (UPI) -- Three rock and roll memorabilia exhibits will be touring Hard Rock Cafes across the United States and Europe, the restaurant chain announced.

The exhibits include guitars, locks of hair and costumes among other pieces of memorabilia culled from the restaurant chain's 70,000-plus-item collection, a Hard Rock news release said.

The "Gone Too Soon" tour will feature items associated with rockers who died in their prime, including Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Kurt Cobain.

Pieces of memorabilia from artists known for their philanthropic endeavors, like Elton John, Shakira and Eric Clapton, will be in the "Music Gives Back" tour.

And finally, touring cities throughout Europe, the "50 Years of Rock & Roll Fashion" will feature some of rock and roll's most incredible costumes, the release said.

The tours will each spend one week at their designated stops.
