Hard Rock Cafe and Bonhams hosts The Antiques Rockshow in Paris

The Hard Rock Cafe and Bonhams hosts The Antiques Rockshow in Paris, on Friday 9th March 2012 11am – 4pm.

The Beatles autographs

Ever wondered what your treasured signed Beatles LP is worth? What about that original Rolling Stones tour poster you ripped off the wall in the 70’s or that broken guitar Brian May gave to you?

Well, now’s your chance to find out when the Antiques Rockshow comes to Paris!

Brought to you by two giants of Rock ‘n’ Roll memorabilia, Hard Rock Cafe and Bonhams auction house, the Antiques Rockshow will take place at the Paris cafe on Friday 9th March.

Two Bonhams specialists in the world of memorabilia, Stephanie Connell and Stephen Maycock, will be present at Hard Rock Cafe (14, boulevard Montmartre, 75009 Paris) between 11am and 4pm and will give a valuation to any genuine piece of music history (Maximum 3 items per person). If you like the price and are wishing to sell, then you will be able to add your item to the Entertainment Memorabilia Auction taking place at the Bonhams auction house in Knightsbridge, London on 3rd July 2012.

Bonhams have previously sold some of the most important rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia to appear on the market, including the Eric Clapton guitar and amp collection in March 2011 for $2.1 million. Other past items include the original artwork for the Clash album London Calling (£72,000), Obi-Wan Kenobi’s cape from Star Wars (£60,000), an autographed copy of the Beatles Sergeant Pepper album (£16,500) and a Beatles autographed Liverpool Airport sign (£19,800).

Stephanie Connell, Head of Entertainment Memorabilia at Bonhams is very excited about the Rockshow, “Hard Rock Cafe is an iconic institution in the world of Rock ‘n’ Roll and we hope to see some great items on the day.”

Many iconic names in rock and pop have played in Paris venues. Were you there? Did you manage to meet the stars and get posters or autographs? If so they could be worth more than you think, so why not come to the Antiques Rockshow and discover their value. Bonhams have previously sold Beatles autographs on paper from a hotel in Paris, a French poster for From Russia with Love, and much, much more.
