"AC/DC: Details of Bon Scott Statue unveiling concert"


The statue of late AC/DC singer Bon Scott will be unveiled on February 24, 2008 at another heavy rock extravaganza at Claremont Showgrounds, Perth, Western Australia. Scheduled performers include Rose Tattoo, The Screaming Jets, Noiseworks and The Party Boys' classic all-star lineup. Playing in The Party Boys will be Australia's two greatest rock guitarists — Kevin Borich and Randall Waller — Angels drummer Buzz Bidstrup, original AC/DC lead singer Dave Evans, Mondo Rock bass player Paul Christie, co-lead singer with Bon in The Valentines, Vince Lovegrove, Buffalo frontman Dave Tice and original AC/DC bass player Mark Evans.

The organizers write in a press release, "We are also pleased to announce that half of the original STATUS QUO lineup, the original Status Quo rhythm section of John Coghlan on drums and Alan Lancaster on bass guitar, will reunite in The Party Boys for the first time in many years. Coghlan and Lancaster will play some classic Status Quo heavy rock hits in the same mould as the classic Bon Scott-era AC/DC hits together with some of Bon's heavy boogie rockers. Further very exciting additions to this classic Party Boys all-star line up will be announced in the coming weeks together with some extra special guests who will appear at the statue unveiling concert!"
