New York Auction to Include a Memorable Jumpsuit

Written by Chief Editor.

On May 19th, Julien’s Auctions will be holding their Music Icons 2018 event at New York City's Hard Rock Cafe.

 
Among the offerings is a custom-made ivory jumpsuit. Elton was photographed in the outfit backstage, after John Lennon joined him onstage. The concert, held at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 28, 1974, turned out to be the former Beatle's final live appearance.
 
The jumpsuit is embellished with rows of colouful iridescent glass encased in metal prongs, and the verso reads “Elton” spelled out in iridescent glass. It has a zip front, an attached belt with a rhinestone buckle, and bell bottom trouser legs. A Cotroneo Costume label is present.
 
Prince, Bob Dylan, Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, George Michael, and Elvis Presley are among the others being represented.

Those wishing to view--and not bid--can check out the goods on exhibit at the Hard Rock through Friday, May 18, from 11 a.m through 9 p.m.
