Gibson announced that it will once again be supporting Hard Rock International global Rocktober spectacular by providing a Gibson Flying V guitar to be signed by all the performing artists during Rocktober and will be displayed in the London Hard Rock. Ghosts will be playing exclusively at Hard Rock locations throughout the U.K. from 9 – 17 October, and all money raised from ticket sales will go to The Caron Keating Foundation. A further three Epiphone acoustic guitars signed by Ghosts, Nerina Pallot and Ross Copperman are being won on air via Virgin Radio.

Hard Rock’s Rocktober, which started in Europe in 2005 and grew into a global campaign, brings some of the world’s best live music to small and intimate surroundings. The series of events support local breast cancer charities across the world, and proceeds from each event throughout the month goes to the chosen charities. Last year’s Rocktober saw artists, such as the Go Go’s, Alexa Ray Joel, Melanie C, and Bonnie Tyler perform, and this year, promises to be as big with the likes of Narina Pallot and Ross Copperman.

This year, Hard Rock Cafes in the U.K. will donate proceeds to The Caron Keating Foundation, which offers financial support to professional carers, complimentary healing practitioners and support groups dealing with cancer patients, as well as individuals and families who are affected by the disease.

Founder of the foundation, Gloria Hunniforord: “I am so thrilled that Hard Rock Cafe has chosen to support the Caron Keating Foundation. We are very much a family run organization, and we have all in our working lives been involved in the music industry. Caron used to present a television rock programme as well as hosting occasionally 'Top of the Pops', and I know, she would truly approve of 'Rocktober' and how many people dealing with cancer will be helped through your efforts in raising money, in her name.”

Since signing to the legendary Atlantic Records in early 2007, it has been a whirlwind year for Ghosts: the band released its debut album The World Outside in June, toured extensively around the country and played some of the biggest U.K. festivals including T In The Park, Wireless, V Festival and Hard Rock Presents Hyde Park Calling.
