Prince Concert-Worn Glove for Sale
In this month’s auction on April 26th 2018 we have a Prince concert-worn glove from his ‘Purple Rain’ tour in 1984. Here is the description:
Prince concert-worn glove from his iconic ”Purple Rain” tour in 1984. A signature white lace glove adorned with rhinestones, Prince wore this glove during his performance on 15 December 1984 at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky before he tossed it into the audience. Glove is accompanied by a notarized letter from a contractor at Rupp Arena, who writes, ”…I was part of the set up and breakdown team – I’ve included my tax records to prove my employment at Rupp Arena…During the show Prince went up a twenty foot staircase to the scaffolding on the side of the stage while performing and took off and threw one of his gloves towards the audience. It didn’t reach the audience though – I watched the glove fall out of sight into the scaffolding below him. After the show, I kept an eye out for the glove as I was breaking down the lighting scaffolding in the area Prince threw it and sure enough, there it was…” As indicated in his letter, the consignor has included a copy of his 1099 record from 1985 showing his employment with IATSE Local 346 representing the Lexington area. Right-handed lace glove measures approximately 8” long including ruffle at bottom, and 6” at the wrist. Some age discoloration, partial tear at the ruffle and rhinestone chain, while present, has separated in two spots. Overall in good condition, consistent with wear. Minimum bid $5,000.
