U2’s the Edge has announced the Icons of Music Sale II to benefit Music Rising. This second annual auction event, hosted by Julien’s Auctions (www.juliensauctions.com) is to be held on Saturday, May 31, 2008 at Hard Rock Café New York in Times Square. It 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).
Music Rising is a campaign co-founded by U2’s the Edge, legendary producer Bob Ezrin and Gibson Guitar Chairman and 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.
Silverchair has autographed and donated to the auction the guitar Daniel burned onstage in Newcastle at the final Across The Great Divide show.
