Hard Rock Cafes To Remove ‘Enter Sandman’ In Honor of Rivera

Mariano RiveraThroughout the year, teams have honored Mariano Rivera’s final season in different ways. On Thursday, Hard Rock Cafe will offer its own special spin to send off the closer, who likely will be playing his last game at Yankee Stadium.

In a ceremony before Thursday night’s game, Hard Rock will announce that Rivera’s warm-up song, Metallica’s “Enter Sandman,” will be yanked from its song system to be retired from all Hard Rock-branded restaurants, hotels and casinos worldwide — with the exception of Hard Rock Cafe Yankee Stadium.
