McConkey Auction Group president and chief executive officer Bob McConkey says his company is seeing more dealers in their 20s, 30s and 40s as of late.
“We’ve also got a great team of young leaders emerging throughout our company,” McConkey said in a news release.
He continued, “The Rock & Roll Sale’s 25th Anniversary will be a great time to showcase a new generation of international headliners as well.”
Weezer is one of those performers, and that rock band known for hits such as “Beverly Hills,” “Buddy Holly” and “Africa” will perform at the Rock & Roll Sale’s 25th Anniversary, which will take place July 15 and 16.
DAA Northwest says that before this year, the auction has featured headliner acts from the 1960s, 70s and 80s.
“This summer, Weezer will catapult the event into a new era,” the company said.
Formed in 1992, Weezer has sold more than 35 million albums worldwide, and they have won Grammys and MTV Video Music Awards.
Just months before DAA’s Rock & Roll Sale, Weezer members Rivers Cuomo, Patrick Wilson, Brian Bell and Scott Shriner plan to release their next record, “Van Weezer,” this spring.
DAA Northwest’s Rock & Roll Sale includes a 1,000-unit Wednesday sale, a Wednesday evening private catered party and concert for DAA’s customers and guests, a 3,200-unit Thursday sale and thousands in post-sale prizes.
