The custom costumes worn by BTS during their Grammy Awards performance earlier this year will be auctioned off for charity.
The seven-member K-pop boy band wore special Louis Vuitton suits to perform their single “Dynamite” at the Grammy Awards in March, marking the megastars’ first appearance at the music industry’s most prestigious awards show.
Besides the suits worn by BTS, other items that will be sold to benefit the Recording Academy’s MusiCares, which helps offer health and other safety-net assistance for those in the music industry that are in need, including a Dolly Parton’s white and gold long sleeve dress and Katy Perry’s silver dress.
Julien’s Auctions will be the host of the auction on Jan. 30, 2022, in the run-up to the Grammy Awards.
When Parton was honored by MusiCares in 2019, she donned her dress. In 2010, Perry sang “California Gurls” with the silver dress at a concert for Grammy nominees.
One of Jason Aldean’s cowboy hats, a jacket worn by Lionel Richie during his 2015 Glastonbury performance, and guitars signed by Machine Gun Kelly and Metallica’s James Hetfield are among the other objects up for auction.
Joni Mitchell has been named this year’s MusiCares Person of the Year, and she will be honored on January 29 at a gala.
BTS will return to the stage with their first live performances on Nov. 27 at SoFi Stadium near Los Angeles, after spending the majority of the month in South Korea. The tickets of the show were reportedly sold out.
