Description

AC/DC signed 'extra' cap and boiler suit worn for the 1991 music video 'Are You Ready'

A boiler suit and cap worn by an extra during the filming of the AC/DC music video ‘Are You Ready' at London's Wembley Stadium in April 1991, with the off-white snapback AC/DC logo cap signed on the brim in various colored ballpoint and felt tip by Brian Johnson, Angus Young, Malcolm Young, Cliff Williams, and Chris Slade. The full-length snap-button boiler suit (108 cm, likely size large) is stamped “AC/DC” on the right chest, and the rest of the suit is covered with large arrow-like stamp marks. In very good to fine condition, with some staining to the cap.

Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks, and by a letter of provenance from the original owner and recipient: “I received the boiler suit and cap as video props for the shooting of ‘Are You Ready’ from the ‘Razors Edge’ album released in 1990. I had tickets to see AC/DC at Wembley in April 1991 and my dad saw an advert in his daily newspaper, the Telegraph, offering fans who had tickets to take part in a video shoot as an extra…the location of the shoot was secret. We ended up in Windsor, Berkshire and handed our suits and caps. It was the best day jumping up and down recorded for the video to be released on 28/3/91. There were what seemed like hundreds of takes and during one of the breaks we were moved from the front of the stage to the side walkways next to the stage. Then Brian Johnson came over and I asked him to sign my cap, which he did, and took it over to the other band members to sign for me. The whole experience was amazing and to see myself in an AC/DC video is one of the best highlights of my life.”
