Ten days after his death at the age of 64, AC/DC co-founder Malcolm Young will be buried Tuesday (Nov. 28) in Sydney, Australia.

Young’s funeral will take place at 11 a.m. local time, with the entire Young family  — including brother and fellow AC/DC guitarist Angus Young  — and other musicians in attendance.

The funeral takes place on the same day as the ARIA Awards, Australia’s equivalent of the Grammys; Young is expected to be honored during the ceremony, along with his older brother and original AC/DC producer George Young, who died Oct. 22 at the age of 70.

Malcolm Young battled dementia for several years before his death and retired from AC/DC during the making of its most recent album, 2014’s Rock Or Bust. Nephew Steve Young took his place on the album and the subsequent tour.
