Great thing what you are doing guys. I am -TheJack- from TheAC/DCFamily and have been supporting and sharing this on our page since the beginning. The support so far has been amazing and now that we are on the final home run i'm sure this dream will become a reality. Once again keep up the great work! Thanks, Greg.

Hi there, I too have done my bit and have spread the word, lets just hope this dream becomes a reality and the legend that is Bon will live on for all to see. Good luck with the final push guys, hope to make it for Bonfest next year (hoping they allow for campervans) \m/

Fan-tastic project and respect to DD8 Music for running this project. J M Barrie isn't Kirrie's only famous son ... Nice yin as well Crowfund Angus (and Angus Council's Chief Exec no less, showin his rockin' credentials there!) for promoting it. The following is a bit boring and may well be something considered and k.b.'d already but the project looks like a shoe-in for charitable status (community development / advancement of the arts + public benefit of increasing visitors to Kirrie) and accessing gift aid from UK taxpayer donors. Just a thought. Best o' luck wi' the project anyways.

my brother alan passed away earlier this summer…we had had a good chat about him taking me to see ac/dc when he was 18 and i was 11 (yes…11!) in july 1980... he worked at the venue, his friend's mom was the manager…we sat in the press box…best (and safest!) seat ever... after that conversation…alan said…'did you know that i saw them with their original singer, when i was working in florida?' i nearly lost my mind…'you saw ac/dc with bon scott…are you freakin' kidding me'…at the top of my lungs! he just giggled. it's such a good memory and one that i'll always remember with a smile and laugh…alan and i had (re) bonded on many levels…and bon was right there with us. good luck! susan (alan's little sister)
