AceShowbiz - A handwritten letter David Bowie penned in July 1969 is expected to fetch thousands at auction next week, May 9. In the note, the late music icon was detailing the terms of a support slot for Dick Jones' group The Drama Band at the Three Tuns pub in Beckenham, England.

"This is to confirm that we wish you to appear at the Three Tuns, Beckenham High St. on Aug. 3rd somewhere between the hours of 7:30 and 10:45 for a duration of anything you like but for not less than 3/4 of an hour," the letter from Bowie reads.

"The bread (money) that shall pass hands will be £10 English currency, in accordance with the rules of the present monetary system. There you go, baby," it continues.

"I'm really looking forward to seeing your band, unless I'm mistaken we should have a very happy constructive evening with interplay from both sides."

The letter is expected to fetch $8,100 at the Omega Auctions sale in Merseyside, England on Wednesday.
