The premiere of "AC/DC: Australia's Family Jewels," an exhibit about the legendary Aussie band, will take place on April 28 at the Experience Music Project Museum in Seattle. The exhibit will feature 400 pieces of memorabilia related to the band and its 40-year history.
The exhibit was originally staged in Australia and has since traveled to Glasgow, Scotland, the home of AC/DC members Angus and Malcolm Young.
Some notable items in the collection include a blue-velvet school uniform that guitarist Angus Young wore and a homemade 1975 "Super Ang" costume (based on Superman, with gold-and-red satin cape. The latter was made by Angus' sister Margaret.
"It's the sweetest thing you've ever seen," Tim Fisher, senior curator at Arts Centre Melbourne where the exhibit originated, told the Seattle Times. "It's absolutely tiny. And he only wore it once."
There is a kickoff party Friday night, featuring the all-female AC/DC tribute band Hell's Belles. Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m., author Anthony Bozza will discuss the band and his book Why AC/DC Matters.
The Experience Music Project Museum exhibit will run through September 29.
