EMI artists Coldplay, Katy Perry, Daft Punk and more auctioning off a load of cool stuff for Japan relief

Posted on

EMI and their roster of pop stars are offering their clothes, concerts tickets, and an assortment of fan must-haves for a great cause. Partnering with the Red Cross, EMI is hosting a worldwide auction for victims affected by last month’s earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Starting today, fans can visit EMI Family 4 Japan on Ebay and scoop up things like Katy Perry’s California Dreams Tour cupcake trampoline.

Not into that? Well, maybe you’d like Chris Martin’s  jacket from the Viva la Vida world tour. What about Daft Punk’s 1987 Ferrari 412 from their Electroma movie? Or a guitar signed by Willie Nelson? They’re all there for the picking. The first half of the sale ends April 15; the second from April 11 to the 21st.

To top that off, EMI plans to match the cash earned up to a maximum of one million euros. Classy move, right? Weeks ago iTunes released Songs for Japan, featuring 38 tracks of well-known hits with proceeds going to the ailing country. It’s nice to see the entertainment community playing its part.

Plan on checking out EMI’s Ebay auction? Let us know.
