AC/DC Lane Is About To Be Thunderstuck

Melbourne’s iconic AC/DC Lane will celebrate its10th anniversary with the AC/DC thunderbolt finally added to its signage.

When the laneway was named in 2004 the Office of the Registrar of Geographic Names omitted the trademark bolt with the AC and the DC. An “illegal” bolt was hammer-drilled into the concrete but stolen. Now Melbourne street artist Knifey and the City of Melbourne are working together to re-install the lightning bolt as officially street signage for the lane.

The new AC/DC Lane complete with lightening bolt will be unveiled on Wednesday, October 1, 2014.

In a statement Knifey said “Melbourne City Council has demonstrated time and again its commitment to showcase both the city’s lane-ways, and the street art that brings so many to visit the City of Melbourne. They have seen the benefit of encouraging legal street art in the city, and have been incredibly supportive of this project.”

Cherry Bar in AC/DC Lane will be holding a dual ‘Agent of Change/10th Anniversary Lane-way party’ with free entry and kegs from 6pm on the first of October, ’til 3am.

AC/DC will release their new album ‘Rock Or Bust’ in November. Check out a sample of the first single ‘Play Ball’ here.

This week the band also confirmed that founding member Malcolm Young will not be returning to the band due to ill health.
