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 to guests at the backstage area of Hard Rock Calling in London on June 29 and 30 and will go on to be seen by the public at Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall from August 16 to 25 and Manchester's Hard Rock Cafe from August 30 to September 8.

Hard 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."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

A pragmatist like you prefers to rely on facts and figure to make decisions. The hard data you want will not be available, forcing you to rely on your intuition. You must get in touch with your instincts. Tune in to your body's signals. Your stomach will tell you which direction to take. When it gives a painful twinge, you should change paths. When it flutters with excitement, you should move forward. This will be a surprisingly accurate barometer. Don't disparage it.More
