0

The custom suits BTS wore for their Grammy Awards performance earlier this year are among the items that will be sold at a charity auction.

The seven-member K-pop group wore custom Louis Vuitton suits to perform their hit “Dynamite” during March’s Grammys, the first time the megastars had performed at music’s marquee awards ceremony.

After spending most of the pandemic in South Korea, BTS will give their first live performances at a series of show starting Nov. 27 at SoFi Stadium near Los Angeles.

Other items headed to the auction block include one of Jason Aldean’s cowboy hats, a jacket worn by Lionel Richie during his 2015 Glastonbury performance, guitars signed by Machine Gun Kelly and Metallica’s James Hetfield, a white and gold long sleeve dress worn by Dolly Parton and a silver dress Katy Perry performed in.

The sale, hosted by Julien’s Auctions, will be held Jan. 30, 2022, during the runup to the Grammys.

The SDG Moment serves to place an annual spotlight on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and will be held at the beginning of the United Nation’s General Assembly’s High-Level Week.

It takes place as the world experiences a deeply uneven response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which risks creating a two-tier recovery with significant implications for the advancement of the SDGs, especially in developing countries.

Convened by the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, the Moment will provide world leaders with a platform to showcase the bold plans, actions and solutions that are needed to end the COVID-19 pandemic and set the world on course towards achieving the SDGs.

Held in advance of major meetings on food systems, climate, energy, jobs and social protection, the SDG Moment event is expected to build the momentum needed to deliver on the Decade of Action and Keep the Promise of the SDGs.
