Report: Fans Rock As Livewire BON SCOTT Immortalized

Aleisha Preedy of The West Australian reports: It was a day for bogans to be loud and proud as the who's who of Australian pub rockers entertained the flannelette-clad crowd at Claremont Showground.

And finally, the bronze statue of local hero Bon Scott was unveiled in front of thousands of AC/DC fans at the Aussie Rock Concert Sunday night.

Original AC/DC singer Dave Evans performed, as did former bassist Mark Evans with his band THE PARTY BOYS.

THE ANGELS were a hit with their rock anthem "Am I Ever Going to See Your Face Again?" getting a rousing sing-along from the crowd.

ROSE TATTOO, NOISEWORKS, THE SCREAMING JETS, BUZZ BIDSTRUP, STATUS QUO and MONDO ROCK also performed, leaving some concert-goers hoarse from singing. Long-time AC/DC supporters Angry Anderson, Jon Stevens and Dave Gleeson also belted out some classic Aussie rock.
