Barrett-Jackson, The World's Greatest Collector Car Auctions, announced today the lineup of celebrity affiliated vehicles that will cross its auction block in Scottsdale as well as the expected presence of notable celebrities, including Billy Baldwin and Gene Simmons (KISS) that are intending to play, to consign or to relish in the Barrett-Jackson experience. With the opening night gala only days away on January 13, car aficionados and those with a love to drive are anxious to take part in the lifestyle experience that is at every Barrett-Jackson auction. This year the company's 43rd annual Scottsdale Auction will be held for the first time at the all-new facility at Westworld of Scottsdale, January 12-19, a facility that boasts nearly 1 million square feet of auction facilities, vendors and non-stop entertainment.
"More and more, our Scottsdale auction as well as our other three auctions, are drawing a greater attendance of celebrities as our brand becomes more global, as our reach enters new media markets and as consignors and bidders flock to our lifestyle events and our website," said Craig Jackson, Chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. "The celebrities joining us in Scottsdale for our opening night gala, will enjoy a special charity auction hosted by Billy Baldwin and a performance by Bret Michaels. They will have a blast with an exciting week activities and auction items."
