New York gallery home to The Beatles and Michael Jackson to close
The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Annex in New York, which has showcased rare items from artists such as The Beatles, Michael Jackson and The Rolling Stones, is to close its doors.

The museum will shutdown on January 3, 2010, a year after it first opened in the Big Apple.

A statement on the venue's official website rockannex.com added: "The Rock Annex is exploring opportunities for a tour that would bring exclusive artifacts to music fans and rock enthusiasts around the world.

"Fans have just one more month to experience the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex NYC, showcasing rare artifacts from legendary artists including Springsteen, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson and its featured exhibit, 'John Lennon: The New York City Years'."

The Lennon exhibition included many artifacts from his life in New York, including a paper bag containing the bloody clothes from the night he was shot dead, photographs, musical instruments, handwritten lyrics and artwork.
