NEW YORK – More than 900 items from some of the world’s biggest music stars including Eric Clapton, Elvis Presley, Madonna and Michael Jackson will be auctioned in New York this week.

The top lot was an acoustic guitar that Clapton owned and played on stage during a 1970 concert in London.

Martin’s guitars are expected to sell for $300,000 to $500,000, said Martin Nolan, executive director of Julien’s Auctions. The draw for guitars and other merchandise will take place Friday and Saturday at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York and online.

A guitar played by Presley and given to Norman Taurog, who directed many of his films, can fetch up to $90,000. The auction also features the suit Madonna wore in the film “Evita” which fetched up to $12,000.

Dresses worn by Amy Winehouse and Katy Perry are also up for grabs.

Several items from rock band Nirvana and lead Kurt Cobain are also included in the sale.

“We have a photo of a teenager Kurt Cobain, it’s very rare that you see a photo of a very young Kurt Cobain, a concert ticket. Anything from Kurt Cobain is highly sought after,” Nolan said. JB
