Cold Chisel Return to Adelaide For One Special Evening
Australian rock icons, Cold Chisel, have announced a special one-off show in Adelaide on Friday, 2 March 2018 to mark the 20th Anniversary of the Adelaide 500, a motorsport showcase. It will mark the first time the band has performed on their former home turf since the One Night Stand tour in 2015.
Cold Chisel formed in Adelaide in 1973, and are one of the Australia’s most revered rock outfits. Their history spans forty years and much of their catalogue have become anthemic hits that underpin the nation’s psyche.
Jimmy Barnes could only speak of the upcoming performance with a nostalgic glow.
“Adelaide was and will always be ground zero for us, our home turf, our training ground. For better or worse it made us who we are,”
Joining Cold Chisel will be a personally picked bill of South Australian natives. Under the banner of ‘Made In SA‘, Chisel have invited their friend Kasey Chambers, rock outfit Bad//Dreems and two SA local openers to join them.
The boys – Barnes (lead vocals), Ian Moss (lead guitar/ vocals), Don Walker (keyboards/backing vocals), Phil Small (bass guitar) and Charley Drayton (drums) – will perform their hits such as ‘Flame Trees’, ‘Khe Sanh’, ‘Cheap Wine’, ‘Choirgirl’, ‘My Baby’, ‘Rising Sun’ and ‘Bow River’ as well as music from their more recent studio albums, No Plans (2012) and The Perfect Crime (2015).
