AC/DC’s Malcolm Young To Be Honoured With Melbourne Charity Concert

AC/DC’s late rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young is set to be honoured with a charity tribute concert in Melbourne this February, featuring musicians who have performed with the likes of Jimmy Barnes, Suzi Quatro and Powderfinger.

Going down on Saturday, 17th February at Melbourne’s Corner Hotel — the same day Acca Dacca released their debut album High Voltage in 1975 — the concert will honour Young (who died in November after suffering from dementia), with all proceeds going to the Dementia Foundation.

Performing at the show will be local AC/DC cover band Whole Lotta Rosie, as well as the likes of Jackie Barnes (Jimmy Barnes Band), Pete Wano (Suzi Quatro Band), Nat Allison (Suzi Quattro Band), Lachy Doley (Powderfinger) and Paul Christie (Mondo Rock), who’ll help knock out some Acca Dacca classics.

“Rock ‘n’ roll is in very good hands with these guys, thank you so much for your time and dedication,” says Malcolm Young’s son Ross Young in a statement.

Malcolm Young was farewelled at a funeral in Sydney in November, after receiving tributes from the likes of The Wiggles, Jimmy Barnes, Guns N’ Roses and Foo Fighters.
