There’s nothing more Australian than hot sun, warm waves and Cold Chisel. The band's classic songs like Khe Sanh, Flame Trees, Bow River, My Baby, Cheap Wine, Saturday Night and You Got Nothing I Want have become the soundtrack to our summers.
Cold Chisel have just announced their first ever outdoor summer tour, Blood Moon Tour 2020, playing 14 special outdoor shows in Australia and New Zealand this summer, playing on the beach, by the river and in the bush.
Before they kick off this HUGE tour the band are joining Kennedy Molloy Wednesday 9th October, listen on the mix94.5 App.
Announcing the news in press conference streamed on Facebook today, the band's frontman Jimmy Barnes said it could be the final chance for fans to experience Cold Chisel live saying;
"Maybe the last... if they miss it they'll be really f*cking sorry".
As if seeing Chisel live isn't enough they'll be bringing along Australian music royalty, Paul Kelly, Hoodoo Gurus, Birds Of Tokyo, Troy Cassar-Daley, Magic Dirt and more along for the huge tour.
Pre-sale tickets will go on-sale on Wednesday 16 October at 2.00pm (local times) with General Public on-sale from Monday, 21 October at 11.00am (local times) via the official ticket links here.
The Blood Moon Tour 2020 tour is named after a rare lunar eclipse where the sun, earth and moon all briefly align before returning to their own orbits.
Announced in a press conference, live streamed to fans today the huge news is just what we needed to get us warmed up for summer.
Fittingly the tour will boast a series of line-ups that are as rare and memorable as a Blood Moon. In Sydney, Cold Chisel will be joined by the mighty Hoodoo Gurus. Paul Kelly will be welcomed on four shows including Tamworth where he will be joined by country music icons Kasey Chambers and Troy Cassar-Daley. Both WA shows will feature a “Best Of The West” line-up that includes hometown heroes like Birds Of Tokyo, Jebediah and Gyroscope while other guests to appear on at least one show include The Teskey Brothers, Busby Marou and The Detonators. Beloved Kiwi band The Mutton Birds will reform just for the New Zealand gig while Birds of Tokyo will feature on seven different gigs and Magic Dirt on six. Every line-up is special.
The Blood Moon Tour 2020 is presented nationally by Triple M/mix94.5 and MAX in association with Foodbank.
