Music memorabilia of your dreams: Madonna, Elvis and Beatles are for sale

Julien's auction will feature a wide range of musical collectibles alongisde a Marilyn Monroe dress


[ As we've reported, Julien's is shaping up to produce an extraordinary sale of music, movie and other memorabilia in Macau.

The likely top lot of the sale is a green dress in which Marilyn Monroe seduced on-screen and film going audiences with her performance as Kay Weston in River of No Return. It is expected to bring up to $300,000, following the $5.6m triumph of her world-famous 'subway' dress earlier this year.

Julien's Auctions will also offer an extraordinary opportunity to own some very special pieces that pay tribute to Elvis Presley. On March 19, 1955 Elvis Presley's first live performance was recorded at The Eagle's Hall in Houston Texas.

The recording master's and the copyright to market and reproduce this recording are offered for auction for the first time. Along with the five song recording is a seven-minute interview with the young Presley from 1956 and a 15-minute interview with guitarist Scotty Moore discussing his relationship with Elvis.

Madonna bustier

Other Elvis items featured in this auction are an acoustic guitar inscribed to one of his fan club presidents, a handwritten set list from an engagement at the International Hotel in Las Vegas, a prop gun given to Presley for luck by MGM executives as he began his concert series in Las Vegas and a handwritten note from Presley to Col. Parker.

Among the unique Beatles memorabilia being offered is a note signed by John Lennon, a Paul McCartney signed Hofner bass, handwritten lyrics from the bands first bassist, Stuart Sutcliffe, and a rare 1963 Beatles concert poster.

There are highlights from more modern stars too: a Madonna signed "Sex" book, a stage worn gold bustier from her Who's That Girl tour, images of Madonna by Herb Ritz signed by the superstar, an early model headshot with information sheet, and a recording of Madonna singing "Simon Says" with her band The Emmy's.

The auction takes place on October 22.
