MidAmerica Rocks Vegas Motorcycle Auction 2013 

ST. PAUL, Minn., Dec. 4th – The wheels are in motion and the music is cued up for MidAmerica Auctions’ 22nd Annual Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction and Races on Jan. 10-12, 2013, at the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nev.

More than 600 antique and classic motorcycles will be up for auction. Kicking off the event, Shane Evans, former drummer of the platinum selling rock group Collective Soul, will serve as the musical guest at the Jan. 10 Children’s Hospital Benefit Dinner Auction featuring 75 premium motorcycles. Evans will sign CDs, photos and memorabilia as well as greet fans throughout the weekend. As a co-founding member of Collective Soul, Evans drummed on seven No. 1 radio hits (“Shine”, “The World I Know”, “Heavy”), 19 Top 40 singles, and sold more than 10 million albums worldwide. It will be his first public appearance in seven years.

“I’m looking forward to playing music again for a cool crowd in a fun city,” said Evans from his Georgia residence. “I hope to visit with a lot of fans and let them know how much I have appreciated their support over the years.”

MidAmerica Auctions will be featuring several exciting private motorcycle collections available for auction, including three motorcycles owned by legendary actor and biking enthusiast, Steve McQueen. Serving as guest of honor is his wife, Barbara McQueen, who will share memories of her famous husband and sign copies of her 2012 book, “Steve McQueen: The Last Mile...Revisited.” Joining her will be McQueen biographer Marshall Terrill, who’ll also sign copies of his two books on ‘The King of Cool.’

“Steve loved collecting antique motorcycles and these were the types of bikes that were in our garage and hangar,” said Barbara McQueen. “He loved kicking back with a couple of brews with like-minded people, trying to talk somebody out of a bike or part. I find it humorous and a tad ironic that I am doing the same thing almost three decades later.”
