AC/DC co-founder Malcolm Young's funeral is set for November 28 at St. Mary's Cathedral in Sydney. 

The 64-year-old died on Saturday November 18, after a battle with dementia and other health issues. says his family has always shunned the spotlight and have requested that the funeral remain private, so there will be no broadcast.

Young's funeral is being held on the same day as the ARIA Awards.

Jimmy Barnes reportedly canceled a Tuesday book-signing event out of respect for the family.

Young died on November 18 only weeks after the death of his older brother George, who played a key role in AC/DC's early years as a producer.

Malcolm had been in a full-time nursing-care facility in Sydney since 2014.

"As his brother, it is hard to express in words what he has meant to me during my life," Angus Young said in a statement after Malcolm's death. "The bond we had was unique and very special. He leaves behind an enormous legacy that will live on forever."
