Perth's real Highway to Hell expecting 100,000 revellers
US man Sean McPartlam has travelled more than 14,000km only to find himself on a real highway to hell in Perth - and he couldn't be happier.
The AC/DC super-fan took a trip across the globe to join what organisers hope will be a record-breaking tribute to Perth native and original AC/DC frontman Bon Scott.
The Sunday spectacular aims to break the record for the longest stage in the world, with dozens of performers on the back of flat-bed trucks - a tribute to AC/DC's classic film clip for Long Way To The Top.

"Been a huge AC/DC fan my whole life, particularly the Bon Scott era, and I just couldn't miss this event," Mr McPartlam told 9News.
In his own words, it's taken him "23 hours of travel, a whole lot of airline miles and a bit of money - a bit more than I would have liked".
A crowd of 100,000 people are expected to line a 10km stretch of Canning Highway on Sunday.

People hoping to attend are being urged to plan ahead and take note of road closures.
There will be extra buses and services, but logistical issues have risen due to the smaller stations.
