AC/DC: Bon Scott play to make its non-theater debut

The first ever non-theater performance of "Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be - The Story Of Bon Scott" will take place on February 19 at The Corner Hotel in Richmond, Victoria, Australia.

The show will honor the 33rd anniversary of the passing of late AC/DC legend Bon Scott, who died in 1980 at age of 33.

The show stars Nick Barker on vocals, Tommy Boyce and Justin Garner on guitars, Alex Raunjak on bass, and Steve Brown on drums.

“Hell Ain’t A Bad Place To Be” tells the story of Bon Scott’s life – his childhood, his family, his secrets, the bands that came before his rise to fame with AC/DC, and his rock and roll dreams.

It follows his life from Scotland to Australia, through his hell-raising teenage years and the bands that came before AC/DCthe Spektors, the Valentines and Fraternity.

From hippie epiphanies to bubblegum pop, to the iconic early years of AC/DC, "Hell Ain’t A Bad Place To Be" celebrates the music, the heartbreak and the life of Bon Scott – a quintessential rock and roll story that ended far too soon.
