Screaming Jet for Bon Scott Bash

06/06/2011
.
Screaming Jets frontman Dave Gleeson has been confirmed as a guest vocalist for the Bon Scott Birthday Concert. Here are the details we were sent: Already being hailed as the new 'Party Boys', Australian rockers Raise The Flag lure two ex members of rock legends AC/DC for the first time! In a world first they join the lineup and help Oz rock fans celebrate the world's #1 rock singer, Bon Scott on his 65th Birthday weekend.

On the rhythm section Simon Wright (UK/USA), best known for his drum work with AC/DC, UFO, DIO and who recorded on albums 'Fly On The Wall', 'Who Made Who', 'Blow Up Your Video' along with six DIO albums, joins Mark Evans, bass man during AC/DC's rise to fame in the 70's and who's work is on albums 'High Voltage', 'TNT', 'Let There Be Rock' and 'Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap'.

Bon but not Forgotten features wild man Dave Gleeson of The Screaming Jets and Anthony 'Skenie' Skene from The Poor, both these singers have performed in other Raise The Flag at other shows across Australia and bring their own energy to the Bon lyrics. This all-star line-up drives a sensational guitar sector with ex The Angels star, James Morley and Rogue Shark Mick Adkins splitting the twin Marshall stacks with the latter taking on the big task of laying down Angus solos with the pair delivering the songs in true 'Young' fashion.

The set list will feature songs written, co written or sung to fame by Bon and include many of the classic anthems Australians have taken as their own such as 'Jailbreak', 'Long Way To The Top', 'Whole Lotta Rosie', 'If You Want Blood' and will feature plenty of surprises that die-hard Bon fans will love.

For the Fremantle show, as midnight rolls over, we will raise the flag to Bon for his 65th Birthday and celebrate all the way through to the Gold Coast for a second show.

Though many of these performers never met Bon, it's the legacy he left behind that these musicians admire and brings them together to remind you that he is

Bon but not Forgotten.

See these legends perform at:
Friday July 8 Metropolis Fremantle Western Australia
Saturday July 9 Parkwood Tavern Gold Coast
