Ian Moss – Matchbook 30th Anniversary Tour

Legendary guitarist and Cold Chisel co-founder Ian Moss is hitting the roads this November through to December in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the release of his debut album, 'Matchbook'. He will be performing in Sydney, Wollongong, Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra, Newcastle, Brisbane and Perth with his four-piece band.

"Like my loyal fan base, Matchbook has been very good to me and it has allowed me to travel and play music that has been embraced by fans all over Australia and abroad. And for that, I am very grateful." - Ian Moss

'Matchbook' was the perfect bookend to a decade that saw music change and the era of MTV begin. It spawned four iconic singles that would further establish Moss as one of the best songwriters of his generation: 'Tucker's Daughter' (#2 on the ARIA Singles Chart & #6 in New Zealand), 'Telephone Booth', 'Out Of The Fire' and 'Mr. Rain'.

The album hit the shelves on August 1, 1989 and peaked at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart. It remained in the Top 10 for an amazing 14 weeks, shipping more than 200,000 copies in the first 12 months alone. Six of the album's 10 songs, including 'Tucker's Daughter', were written by Cold Chisel bandmate Don Walker; two were co-written by Moss and Walker; and one co-written by Moss, Walker and Cold Chisel drummer, Steve Prestwich. The record also earned several awards at the 1990 ARIA Music Awards.

Joining Mossy on all dates is Sydney's Mark Wilkinson. Mark's latest album, Blue Eyed Girls, has seen the former busker sell over 70,000 discs to date, landing at #1 on Australia's Independent Albums Chart. He's already supported the likes of Brian Wilson, Peter Frampton and Seal—now, it's Mossy's turn.

Meanwhile, special guest Lachlan Edward will join Moss and Mark on the Sydney, Melbourne and Newcastle shows. This young indie singer-songwriter from Newcastle can count Kasey Chambers as one of his fans, thanks to early singles which have been embraced by triple j, including 'These Days' and 'Little Things' (the latter earning the #1 spot on triple j Unearthed's Roots Chart).
