Stage outfits worn by Michael Jackson, Madonna and Freddie Mercury are to go on tour.

They are part of a visiting memorabilia exhibition put together by Hard Rock Cafe which will be seen over the summer months.

The Hard Rock Couture exhibition has already been seen in northern Europe and is now to be shown in London, Glasgow and Manchester.

Jackson’s Beat It leather jacket, Madonna’s Jean Paul Gaultier-designed gold corset and Mercury’s black and white striped spandex catsuit are among the items which can be seen.

They will be on display at Manchester’s Hard Rock Cafe from August 30 to September 8.

Rock historian Jeff Nolan said: “We have spent nearly two years, scouring our 77,000-piece collection, to pull together a collection that will wow our guests.”
