Due to incredible demand, legendary Cold Chisel announce their One Night Stand tour of Australia!

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.

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.

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!"

Tickets on sale midday on Wednesday, 3 June through Ticketek.
