Cold Chisel announce huge 50th Anniversary Tour - "The Big Five-O"

"This 50th-anniversary tour will be a huge celebration - for all of us.”

Cold Chisel’s 50th anniversary is coming up!!!  And to celebrate, the rockers have announced a huge 50th-anniversary tour called "The Big Five-O" – and yes… they’re coming to Perth, along with some other impressive bands.

We’re talking Birds of Tokyo, The Cruel Sea, The Superjesus, and Karen Lee Andrews… After Jimmy Barnes' heart surgery last year, he’s keen to celebrate his new lease on life, along with Ian Moss, Don Walker, and the rest of the band – and they’ll be hitting up Sandalford Wines on October 19th with tickets on sale June 4 through Ticketmaster.

“The Big Five-0” will be a night like no other. This time, the band isn’t touring to promote a new album; they are touring for the best possible reason … “because we all love playing gigs together”. Their anniversary provides scope for a show that features all the classic songs with which Cold Chisel carved their unique place in Oz Rock history - Khe Sanh, Bow River, Flame Trees, You Got Nothin’ I Want, When The War Is Over, My Baby, Cheap Wine, All For You, Choir Girl, Last Wave Of Summer, Saturday Night, Breakfast At Sweethearts, Forever Now and so many more.

The Cold Chisel story has stretched from Armidale and Adelaide in 1974 to three new gold and platinum albums over the last dozen years, winning the band multiple generations of fans. Their most recent release - 2019’s Blood Moon - topped the charts and its lead single, Getting The Band Back Together, won the APRA Award for Australia’s Most Performed Rock Work.

As the accolades have piled up - ARIA Hall Of Fame, APRA’s Ted Albert Award, an Adelaide Street named in their honour, even their own postage stamp - Cold Chisel has come to understand the special place their music now occupies in Australasian hearts.

“The Big Five-0” will be a rare chance for fans of all ages to see the band in action and sing their songs to them one more time.

Don Walker summed it up succinctly, “This 50th-anniversary tour will be a huge celebration - for all of us.”
