The auction will include the usual collector’s items, like the jacket Roth wore in a photo with Eddie Van Halen. The jacket is estimated to bring in as much as $4,000. Another exceptional addition to the auction is Pete Townsend’s blue boiler suit and long beige linen “kimono” coat he wore while performing with The Who during their shows at the Hollywood Bowl last year.
But the lot that might break a record is the pastel outfits BTS wore in their 2020 music video for “Dynamite,” the K-pop superstars’ smash hit and first No. 1 single in the U.S.READ MORE: Driver Identified In Bizarre Pursuit Involving BMW Doing Donuts, Hitting Pedestrian
