The touring exhibition, ‘Rock Through the Ages’, showcases images of international music legends on and off stage, captured by O’Regan over a 40-year career.
His famous subjects have included David Bowie – to whom he was official photographer in the 1980s – Spandau Ballet, Pink Floyd, Queen, Duran Duran, Thin Lizzy and the Rolling Stones.
The exhibition – organised in a tie-up with Network Rail – first went on display at Manchester Piccadilly station last September, before touring the UK.
Speaking at the time, O’Regan, who was the official photographer at Wembley Stadium for Live Aid in 1985, said: ‘I have photographed great musicians and travelled to extraordinary places to capture classic moments in music.
‘Railway stations are a great way of connecting people with art in their everyday lives and it is fantastic to be able to share my photos with rail passengers and station users around the country.’
Visitors can enter a draw to win a camera, the winner of which will be announced at the end of the tour on 31 March.
