More Than 10,000 Gather For Tribute To Late AC/DC Frontman BON SCOTT

Simon Collins of The West Australian reports that fists pumped in time to hard rock music under the searing sun at Claremont Showground Sunday (February 25) as THE ANGELS, ROSE TATTOO, SCREAMING JETS and others paid tribute to the late, great AC/DC frontman Bon Scott.

More than 10,000 black T-shirt-clad rock fans of all ages descended on the showground for the Bon Scott Celebration concert, which was organised to raise money for a statue of the singer music magazine Mojo rated the greatest rock frontman of all time.

Despite the heat, entire families donned jet black AC/DC T-shirts to salute the Fremantle-raised singer who died 27 years ago.

Concert organiser and ANGELS drummer Graham "Buzz" Bidstrup said it was great to see a new generation of fans get into rock music that was up to 30 years old. He said they had easily raised the $100,000 needed to erect a bronze statue of Scott in Fremantle.
