Discovery Day: Hard Rock Cafe New York

The Beatles Story and Julien’s Auctions team up once again to bring a Beatles and Rock ‘n’ Roll ‘Discovery Day’ to Hard Rock Cafe New York on Thursday 17th May 2018.

Hard Rock International is home to the world’s biggest collection of music memorabilia, with over 80,000 iconic pieces including countless items from The Beatles, making it a perfect partner for the upcoming event.

This special event will give members of the public, fans and collectors the opportunity to have their Beatles and Rock ‘n’ Roll memorabilia appraised for free by the experts.

 

Previous events held in Liverpool and London were a tremendous success, bringing in a steady stream of visitors with fascinating artefacts to be valued. Amongst them, a collection of 26 negatives containing rare never-before-seen photographs of John Lennon, which taken in February 1970 seem to depict intimate portraits of the former Beatle.

Another unique find was a letter written by John Lennon addressed to The Queen, explaining the singer’s reasons for returning his MBE, it was valued by Julien’s Auctions on the day at around £60,000. The owner, who wishes to remain anonymous, discovered the item tucked away inside the sleeve of a record that was part of a collection picked up for just £10 around 20 years ago.

 

Internationally renowned Julien’s Auctions has broken world records with the sale of Beatles memorabilia including John Lennon’s acoustic guitar recently sold for a record $2.4 million, Ringo Starr’s Ludwig drum kit sold for a record $2.2 million, The Ludwig Beatles Ed Sullivan Show drumhead sold for a record price of $2.1 million and The Beatles White Album owned by Ringo Starr sold for $790,000.

 

 

Fans based in the US are being urged to check their attics and garages for any hidden gems. Darren Julien, Founder & CEO of Julien’s Auctions, said: “We are excited to bring our Discovery Day to Hard Rock Cafe New York. John Lennon spent a lot of time in New York during his solo years and we are convinced there will be some valuable and fascinating historical items just waiting to be discovered.”

The ‘Discovery Day’ will take place at Hard Rock Cafe New York on Thursday 17th May 2018, 3pm – 8pm. To pre-book a free face-to-face valuation, please complete the form below, all details will be kept strictly confidential.
