Kingdom Theatre Company

Born in Scotland, Bon Scott emigrated to Australia and joined rock band AC/DC to become a legend. Starring ex-Nazareth vocalist Linton Osborne as Bon, we recall the trials and the triumphs with new, original songs by Willie Logan, along with some Bon classics performed live. We eavesdrop backstage and finally experience the excitement of the live arena as the story unfolds and he becomes the voice of rock still idolised to this day. The award-winning Kingdom Theatre Company is a registered charity promoting new writing and training, in its sixth successful year at the Fringe.

Bon the Musical

Fails to deliver a promising musical

There's an obvious story arc to the life of Bon Scott (singer with AC/DC when they first broke from the underground). The rise to stardom, the parties, the drinking, the price of fame and his tragic early death in 1980 all form a clear plot line. Plus…

Don’t waste your time or money on this show. The guy can sing but the rest of it was absolutely dire. Very poor acting in what could be a fantastic show.

As a long time Bon Scott fan. I found this really entertaining. The songs in the style of AC/DC were particularly good and Linton Osborne was a great Bon. My only (small) complaint was, Linton, you need to hold the mike in the distinctive Bon fashion, with the cable wrapped up. Overall, well worth the entrance fee. Need to have this featured at the next Bonfest at Kirriemuir.
