COLD CHISEL ANNOUNCE 2015 CLIPSAL 500 CONCERT + NEW LIVE CD
Legendary Australian rock band, Cold Chisel, will return to where it all began to headline the Sunday night concert at the iconic Clipsal 500 Adelaide on 1st March 2015. Marking 40 years since they coalesced into their definitive line-up and tore a rock & roll hole through the heart of Adelaide, the band has decided to celebrate this milestone with a special one-off show for the fans and the city that shaped them.
The Clipsal 500 concert will be the first time the band has featured on stage together since 2012 and it will be their first time onstage in Adelaide since 2011.
Cold Chisel receives countless offers to perform but frontman Jimmy Barnes said the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide was the reason for the boys’ homecoming. “It was one of those things where the event really suited the band and the timing was just right - a perfect storm. The Clipsal 500 is the biggest event on the V8 Supercars calendar and the concerts are huge and notorious, so for us it was a great fit, a no-brainer” Barnes said.
Tickets go on sale Friday 8 August 9:00am from Ticketek.com.au. For more information, go to www.coldchisel.com.
Full event, ticketing and corporate information is available on the Clipsal 500 Adelaide website clipsal500.com.au
Cold Chisel also announced the next installment in their archival ‘Live Tapes’ series, the blistering The Live Tapes - Vol 2 - Live At The Bombay Rock.
This particular gig happened on April 29 at Melbourne’s infamous Bombay Rock and some of the show was broadcast live to air throughout Australia on various AM radio stations. It was the first time most listeners had encountered the tsunami of a Cold Chisel gig. For those people the experience was unforgettable and over the decades since that night, tapes, CD burns and MP3’s of the radio broadcast have circulated constantly among hardcore fans.
“The Live Tapes – Vol 2 – Live At The Bombay Rock” will be released on November 14 this year as a CD and digital download. This much requested album is the second in an ongoing series of special live recordings unearthed from Cold Chisel’s own archives.
