Late music icon singer Prince’s items from the wardrobe are available for grabs after the collector walked back on their decision to open a museum to showcase the items.
The shirt Prince donned for his performance of his smash hit “Purple Rain” at the 1985 American Music Awards is among the sought-after lot. The ruffled shirt could fetch $15,000 at auction, reports
However, the costume Prince wore in his 1986 directorial debut “Under the Cherry Moon” is expected to make much more money, with the auctioneer expecting it to go for around $45,000.
The collection up for grabs also includes guitars, polaroids, and master tapes of his albums. A blue Schecter “Cloud” Guitar played by the “1999” hitmaker has been valued at $4,000.
Bobby Livingston of RR Auction commented, “What this auction really does is it shows the influence and legacy of Prince with his fashion choices and how it relates today, when you see all these artists on tour, you know, different costumes, different outfits, reinventing themselves for each tour.”
The auction news comes after Prince was honoured with his own road in Minneapolis. (IANS)
