Music legends AC/DC to rock Kelvingrove

Rock legends AC/DC are returning to Glasgow - but this time it is just for an exhibition at Kelvingrove Art Gallery.

Fans will be able to view around 450 items linked to the Australian band that boasts a huge following in Scotland due to the members' tartan roots.

The exhibition, which originated in Australia, will open in September and will run until the end of January 2012.

It is the first time it has left Australia and Kelvingrove is its only European date.

Items on show will include a leather jacket once owned by late singer Bon Scott and handwritten lyrics to classic song "Highway to Hell".

It will also feature an early version of axe hero Angus Young's signature schoolboy outfit, one of his guitars and the AC/DC stage-show cannon.

Brothers Angus and Malcolm Young were born in Glasgow before their family emigrated to Australia. And the hard rock combo's late singer, Bon Scott, hailed from Kirriemuir before he moved Down Under as a boy.

George Redmond, councillor and chairman of Glasgow Life, which runs the city’s museums and galleries, told the Herald: “Our policy has always been to try and engage new audiences with Kelvingrove whenever we can and AC/DC’s enormous popularity and well-known links to Scotland will continue that tradition.”
