Legendary Australian band Cold Chisel will be hitting the roads with their massive 'Blood Moon Tour 2020' this December through to February next year. They will be playing very special outdoor shows in Perth, Busselton, Adelaide, Hunter Valley, West Tamworth, Sydney, Wollongong and Canberra as well as five unforgettable winery shows in Orange, Wahgunyah, Brisbane, Yarra Valley and Geelong for A Day On the Green.

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. Since their legendary 'Last Stand' way back in 1983, Cold Chisel has reformed for just four national tours, but they almost always played indoors and those gigs didn't happen over the holidays.

For the 'Blood Moon Tour 2020', the band will be doing gigs on the beach, gigs by the river and gigs in the bush. You've never seen anything like it before. You'll never see anything like it again!

A Day On The Green special guests will include Paul Kelly, Birds of Tokyo and Magic Dirt (Geelong). At Wahgunyah, Mount Cotton and Orange, the lineup includes Birds of Tokyo and Magic Dirt, with The Detonators also joining the bill at the Yarra Valley.

The band has announced that Foodbank will be supported in various ways throughout this tour including by way of special auction items and fundraising collections at each venue.

Since forming in Adelaide in 1973 and blasting onto the national scene in the late '70s, Cold Chisel has created a uniquely Australian fusion of rockabilly, roughhouse soul, and blues. Between 1978 and 1983 the original lineup of Don Walker, Jimmy Barnes, Ian Moss (guitar/vocals), Phil Small (bass) and Steve Prestwich (drums) recorded five studio albums that became Australian classics. 1978's self-titled debut and 1979's 'Breakfast At Sweethearts' initially received little support from mainstream media but eventually went gold based on nonstop touring.

1980's 'East' was their huge commercial breakthrough and 1982's 'Circus Animals' saw them top the charts. However, by the time 'Twentieth Century' was released in 1984, the band had already flamed out, making their unforgettable 'Last Stand' in arenas around the country. In 1998, Cold Chisel reformed briefly for a chart-topping album and tour called 'The Last Wave Of Summer'. An "unplugged" style run of dates called Ringside followed five years later, then in 2011, the group was working on a new studio album that became 'No Plans' when Steve Prestwich sadly died from complications during surgery for a brain tumour. Eventually Charley Drayton agreed to step in to help complete what Steve began and he's played drums with the band ever since, including on the record-breaking 'Light The Nitro Tour' and 2015's platinum-certified 'The Perfect Crime'.

Over the course of their career, Cold Chisel has sold almost 7 million albums across vinyl, cassette, CD, downloads and streaming. They've been inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame and received the Ted Albert Award for Outstanding Services to Australian Music. Their greatest achievements though are their songs. It's a body of work that has defined and echoed who we are. For more than 40 years, Cold Chisel has defied the odds, ignored the trends, and blazed their own trail. The band has endeared themselves to all sorts of Australians because their uncompromising attitude articulates our hopes, fears, alienation and humour, and because they are simply one of the most ferocious live rock 'n' roll outfits on Earth.
