This was announced on our FB page a couple of months back.
THUNDERSTRUCK has been invited to perform their full show at BONFEST in Kirriemuir, SCOTLAND, UK on the first Weekend in May 2020. The boys are extremely excited and proud that their hard work and being the best AC/DC Tribute in AUSTRALIA has paid off.
More about this, soon.
When it comes to tribute bands, you can't go past this show. This is not only one of the best tribute shows going around, this is regarded as the BEST AC/DC tribute.
From an idea first spawned in 1986 by original Lead Singer, Bob Topping, “BACK IN BLACK” the original AC/DC tribute eventually took to the stage in 1988.
After a name change around 1994, that band re-grouped to become THUNDERSTRUCK and has been wooing audiences as a collective for more than 30 years.
Fast forward to current day, (Original “Back In Black” member) Rohan Moran has been playing the part of Angus Young from the bands inception, nailing every solo with a brilliance unlike that of any other guitarist playing Angus Young.
Lead vocalist, B.J. Vernal (2005), not only covers the songs of Brian Johnson brilliantly, but sounds so much like Bon Scott on the eariler AC/DC, you would think “he is possessed by the great mans spirit”, as many fans have put it.
Put this together with the rhythm section of Nick Hunt (drums, 2018), Dave Ross (bass, 1998) and Danny Borthwick on rhythm guitar (2004) as Malcolm Young and you have got one fantastic show!
From AC/DC's first album (disc) 1975's HIGH VOLTAGE to the latest one in ROCK Or BUST, the tribute Show THUNDERSTRUCK not only gives you the music of AC/DC, but also a brilliant visual aspect. (see bio's for more info).

Fri 27th - Harness Racing Club, GEELONG
Sat 28th - Red Lion Brewery, KILMORE
