AC/DC's Bon Scott Hometown Statue Delayed

(hennemusic) The unveiling of a statue honoring late AC/DC frontman Bon Scott in the singer's former hometown of Kirriemuir, Scotland has been delayed to next year.

The statue was originally scheduled to be revealed during the town's annual tribute to the late singer, Bonfest, but an organizer for the event, Graham Galloway says that the unveiling has been pushed back until next year.

"We have made the decision to push the unveiling of the statue back to next year's Bonfest, which will take place in May 2015," said Galloway. "Artist John McKenna has now started work on the statue after a public vote confirmed the final design will include bagpipes over Bon's shoulder.

"We had hoped to be ready for this year's Bonfest in August (15-17), but as the statue is now part of the major renovations to Kirriemuir's town centre the final installation date has been somewhat taken out of our hands." more on this story
