Australia’s Family Jewels hits the highway
Posted on 6 Sep 2011
AC/DC Australia’s Family Jewels will be touring to the Kelvingrove Museum and Gallery, Glasgow, Scotland from 17 September 2011 until 12 February 2012, and to the Experience Music Project in Seattle, Washington from 28 April to 23 September 2012.
Three weeks after the exhibition returned from the Australian national tour, during which more than 415,000 visitors walked through the doors; 33 crates, 428 objects, plus AV equipment, hardware and 16 folders of condition reports has just been palletized ready to be loaded on to the aircraft bound for Glasgow.
AC/DC Australia’s Family Jewels covers the 35 year career of one of the world’s greatest rock bands. The first exhibition ever about AC/DC, with never seen before original material on public display. Angus Young’s ‘Super-Ang’ costume and school boy outfit and Bon Scott’s Leather jacket are but a few of the all-time favourites that you’ll be able to see first-hand. The exhibition includes costumes, original instruments, hand-written letters, notebooks and lyrics, stage props and rarely seen live footage.
AC/DC have sold more than 200 million albums worldwide since 1975 and continue to perform and record to great acclaim, ranking highly on all popular surveys of great Rock’n’Roll acts.
