Bon But Not Forgotten is the closest you will ever get to AC/DC in the seventies, and it’s coming to Gold Coast this July.
The show brings together some of the world’s greatest rockers to pay tribute to legend Bon Scott, iconic original vocalist of one of the world’s greatest ever bands, AC/DC. Sadly, Scott did not live to see 34, but the tour is timed to coincide with what would have been his 73rd birthday on 9 July.
Featuring a knockout lineup, including past and present members of Aussie rock icons Baby Animals, The Angels and The Poor, this supergroup certainly knows how to electrify a crowd with its explosive repertoire of AC/DC’s greatest hits. It’s a show that replicates the sound, style and passion of AC/DC, without pretense.
The line-up features the consummate talents of: Dario Bortolin (Bass Guitarist of The Baby Animals), SKENIE (The Poor), James Morley (The Angels, Choirboys), Joel McDonald (lead guitarist and musical curator for Frankie’s World Famous House Band of cult venue Frankie’s Pizza, Sydney), rock vocalist Cynthia Gallie, and industry veteran Greg Aldrige.
Joining them as special guests this year, in the Brisbane and Gold Coast shows, will be REDSTARBORN, a three piece Australian rock band known for their heavy anthemic rock songs and charismatic stage show. Fusing elements of modern metal, 90s alternative and hard Aussie rock, the Gold Coast power trio employ serious grooves, crushing riffs and bold hooks to craft their heavy-hitting yet broadly accessible sound.
