Larger than life.
Iconic late AC/DC vocalist Bon Scott is set to be honoured with a permanent sculpture in Melbourne.
Coming out of the historic Cherry Bar brick wall and looking down upon the famous AC/DC Lane, the three metre-high and two metre-wide sculpture will be officially unveiled at 11am on Tuesday 6 March.
Supported by the Victorian Government’s 'Rockin’ The Laneways' initiative, Cherry owner and booker James Young has collaborated with famed local street artist Mike Makatron on the project.
"I've painted the laneway annually for about five years now - always a varied interpretation of the theme of music and it’s an honour to add a permanent 3D element that pays tribute to a great Australian rock and roll band and its lead singer Bon Scott, but also to music in general," Makatron said.
"Thanks to all, especially the vision of James Young of Cherry Bar who instigated the idea and grant application with Creative Victoria."
