  AC/DC: SCOTLAND'S FAMILY JEWELS AT KELVINGROVE
Johnny Main

johnny main


The 'AC/DC: Scotland's Family Jewels' exhibition is currently on show at the Kelvingrove Museum (its only European stop before moving on to the United States as part of its world tour). It closes on Sunday 12th February, so for those that haven't seen it yet, now's the time to arrange a visit.

ac/dc

The exhibition is the only one fully approved by AC/DC themselves, and celebrates the 39 year history of the band, with many items being on public display for the first time, including stage costumes, handwritten lyrics, letters written to their families and friends whilst on tour, a Cannon stage prop and even one of Angus Young's very own custom-made guitars.




Add to this a selection of live footage and promotional videos from throughout the bands career displayed on giant screens throughout the exhibition, as well as giving visitors the chance to play the ultimate guitar riff on an interactive display, its a must for AC/DC fans and more casual rock music fans alike.

ac/dc

The reason the exhibition is in Glasgow, of course, is because both Malcolm and Angus Young were born in the city before moving to Australia in 1963 (when they were aged 10 and 8 respectively) and don't forget too, that Bon Scott (singer of the band from 1974 until his untimely death in 1980) was born in Kirriemuir, just outside Dundee before he and his family moved to Australia in 1952.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.

Wacken 2018 takes place from 2nd to 4th August 20218 and as with Wacken Winter Nights, if you have never experienced all it has to offer, then you owe it to yourself to remedy that.

As well as being the greatest Heavy Metal festival in the world, it is without a doubt the Mecca of Metal and the one thing that every single person who loves our music should have on their bucket list.

For 2018, MetalTalk have joined forces with Wacken-Open-Air to help you get to Wacken easily and inexpensively and you can peruse the ticket and travel options right here.
