Madonna Memorabilia Auction Announced


Have you ever wondered what it’d be like to dance in Madonna’s shoes? A new auction announced yesterday by Julien’s Auctions would allow you to make that a reality, with items from the pop icon’s personal and professional life being auctioned later this year.


The world’s premier entertainment auctioneering house will offer Madonna’s items

Pieces including the legend’s Marilyn Monroe-inspired dress from the ‘Material Girl’ music video will feature, as well as more than 30 items from the film Evita being offered during the Icons & Idols: Rock’n’Roll auction in Beverly Hills, California on November 7-8.

Julien’s Auctions have said that a selection of the awards that the 56 year-old queen of reinvention has won will also be included, including an MTV Video Music Award and European Music Award, A Billboard Music Award and an American Music Award.

From Madonna’s personal collection, a diary from 1988 – the timeframe preceding her iconic Like a Prayer era – will feature, as well as a 1972 Junior High yearbook, a signed document detailing her separation from Sean Penn, and signed cheques.

A special exhibit of the Collection of Madonna Memorabilia will open at the Newbridge Silverware’s Museum of Style Icons on August 18 through September 15 in Kildare, Ireland. Hours are 9am-6pm Monday through Sunday, with free entry and parking included.

Madonna is currently readying her much-anticipated 13th studio album with production credits from Avicci and Diplo confirmed, with rumours also swirling about collaborations with Nile Rodgers and Disclosure.

The entertainer is also expected to announce a 2015 world tour in support of the record. The concerts would be the first since her 2012 MDNA tour, which was named the highest-grossing tour of the year by Billboard, taking $305 million from 88 sold-out shows.
