COLD CHISEL announce their 'ONE NIGHT STAND' National Tour

* DUE TO INCREDIBLE DEMAND *

Tonight, ahead of State Of Origin 1, and in front of an audience of 80,000 live spectators, more than 2.5 million TV viewers and many millions more online, the legendary Cold Chisel announced their One Night Stand tour of Australia.  It will  be a tour unlike any the band has previously undertaken and will include a number of unique performances and 'firsts' for an Australian band.

 

The band revealed tonight that they will 'kick-off' the tour with a special mini-concert at the NRL Grand Final at ANZ Stadium on Sunday, 4 October, where they will be the only artist performing. That same weekend they will play a full headline set at the 2015 Deni Ute Muster on Friday, 2 October. From there, Cold Chisel will traverse the nation (full details below), headlining festivals like The V8 Supercars Castrol Gold Coast 600 and the Decades Festival in Strathpine, Qld, playing arenas and a number of special performances - including being the first Australian band to headline the mythical Hanging Rock in Victoria and also Hope Estate in the New South Wales Hunter Valley. There are also big shows in new venues for the band, like 1300SMILES Stadium, Townsville (Saturday, 7 November) and Perth Arena (Saturday, 14 November) which wasn't completed when the band last played Perth in 2012. Cold Chisel is excited to confirm that The Living End will be joining them at the Decades Festival, Hope Estate and Hanging Rock.

 

Frontman Jimmy Barnes revealed tonight that the band felt compelled to undertake the tour as a direct response of the incredible reaction they received when they recently announced two special shows under the banner of 'The Last Stand of Sydney's entertainment  centre'  to mark the  closing of the  Qantas  Credit   Union Arena (formerly known as the Entertainment Centre). Promising a show  that referenced their classic 1983 Last Stand tour, which finished at the iconic venue, these two new shows captured the fascination of music fans around the country with all 20,000 tickets selling out within minutes - and with interstate fans screaming to be included.

 

"In March we played a homecoming show in Adelaide to 35,000 people,"
said
Barnes.
"Then when we announced these two shows in Sydney the reaction was ballistic. The demand blew our minds, suggesting that it was time for us to get back out there."
The band
then
hatched
the
idea
of
One Night Stand
,
with
each
venue
being
a
definite
'for one
night
only'
experience
-
with
the
exception
of
Sydney
where
the
tour
concludes with the two already sold-out shows at
QCUA.

 

Of course Barnes and his band mates
Ian Moss
(guitar/vocals),
Don Walker
(piano/keyboards),
Phil Small
(bass) and drummer
Charley Drayton
shouldn't
have been surprised by the excitement: With a history that spans forty years and
a reputation
forged
through
blistering
live
shows
and
a
catalogue
of
much-loved
songs and
albums,
Cold Chisel
has
become
a
part
of
the
nation's
psyche.
Their
story
is colourful, volatile and proud and their music continues to be ingrained in the hearts
of generations of Australians. They've sold almost 7 million albums across
bona-fide Australian classics like
East, Breakfast at Sweethearts
and
Circus Animals
, while songs
like
Cheap Wine, Choir Girl, When The War Is Over, Flame Trees, Bow River, Saturday Night
and
Khe Sanh
remain the staple of radio playlists, pubs, jukeboxes, concert halls and karaoke bars across every part of the
country.

 

Their reunion in 2009, for a one-off performance at Sydney’s Olympic Stadium, saw the band play in front of 50,000 people - the biggest crowd of their career. This sparked a renewed enthusiasm for working together again onstage and in the studio. In 2011 they undertook the Light The Nitro tour, one of the biggest tours ever by an Australian band with over 285,000 tickets sold. And in 2012 they released the critically hailed and Gold-selling No Plans album, which debuted at #1 on the ARIA Australian Album chart.

 

After a three year break, 2015 feels like the right time to get back in the
saddle.

"We love playing together," said guitarist Ian Moss. "We've come to realise that there's a certain magic and chemistry in Cold Chisel that we don't get anywhere else and it makes a special connection with Australian audiences. We can't wait to make that connection once again on our One Night Stand tour. See you there!"
