Australia's 'Family Jewels' Expo - next stop: Sydney
Australia's Family Jewels Exhibition is to open at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney on 11 September 2010. Many of the original exhibits, not seen on public display before, will be on show including:
costumes, original instruments, stage props, photographs and rare hand-written material such as letters, notebooks and lyrics. Angus Young’s Gibson guitar, ‘Super-Ang’ costume and school boy outfit, and Bon Scott’s leather jacket.
The exhibition "links the material history of the band to the experience of their music. The exhibition also tries to convey the place that AC/DC holds for their devoted fans.”
This first-ever exhibition about AC/DC explores the history and milestones of this phenomenal band, from their formation and early Australian chart success to their explosion onto the international stage, the sudden death of lead singer Bon Scott, and the next chapter in the group’s history with new lead singer Brian Johnson and the subsequent release of some of the biggest and most successful albums in Rock’n’Roll history.Source: The Daily Telegraph Join the discussion in the forum.
