Melbourne`s Cherry Bar at AC/DC Lane will be cranking up the hours next week when AC/DC come back home.Cherry Bar co-owner James Young said, “With so many international, interstate, regional and local AC/DC fans descending on AC/DC Lane at this time we thought it was important to bring the Lane to life beyond a mere digi-pic of a street sign. So, Cherry plans to bring AC/DC to life in AC/DC Lane through AC/DC-inspired art and music. It will be a one-off experience unique to Melbourne, the rock capital of the world.”
On AC/DC show days next week, Cherry Bar will open from 3pm on the 11th and 15th February and from midday on Saturday 13th February.
Young, owner of Bon Scott’s personal letters, will have the letters on display at Cherry Bar on those days.
Also Cherry and artist Ben Couzens have council approval for a AC/DC art installation telling the story of AC/DC in posters through-out AC/DC Lane.
AC/DC lived in Melbourne and wrote the first two albums ‘High Voltage’ and ‘TNT’ in the Victorian capital.
