U2's THE EDGE announced the Icons of Music Auction to benefit MUSIC RISING on SATURDAY, APRIL 21 at THE HARD ROCK CAFE NEW YORK in TIMES SQUARE at 5p. The auction event will offer one of the most significant collections of music memorabilia from many of music's greatest legends with proceeds benefiting MUSIC RISING (www.musicrising.org), a campaign co-founded by THE EDGE, producer BOB EZRIN and GIBSON GUITAR Chairman/CEO HENRY JUSZKIEWICZ in 2005 to aid musicians of the GULF COAST Region in regaining their livelihood after the devastation of Hurricanes KATRINA and RITA.
The live and online auction, hosted by JULIEN's Auctions (www.juliensauctions.com), will be offering approximately 200 pieces of music memorabilia, much of which has been specifically donated for this cause.
