A wealth of artists and songwriters from the EMI family are raising funds to help the Red Cross support people in Japan who were affected by the earthquake and tsunami last month.
A worldwide auction of personal items and memorabilia will be available for purchase to the general public between April 5th-15th.
The charity auction, which will be managed by eBay and divided into two phases, features items from some of the world’s biggest stars, including Coldplay, Norah Jones, Katy Perry, Iron Maiden, Jane Birkin, the Beach Boys, David Guetta, Lady Antebellum, Daft Punk, Keith Urban, Good Charlotte and The Beatles.
Items to be sold in the first phase of the auction include Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin’s jacket from the 2010 Viva La Vida world tour, Jane Birkin’s own Birkin handbag designed by Hermes, a pair of vintage speakers from Abbey Road’s famous Studio 3, five nights at Michael Franti’s yoga retreat in Bali, the Beastie Boys’ Japanese MTV award, and a signed limited edition lithographic Depeche Mode print.
I would hold out for Katy Perry’s cupcake trampoline being used on stage during her current California Dreams tour, but that’s just me..
