COLD CHISEL TO HEADLINE BYRON BAY BLUES FEST!
Bluesfest organisers have announced that COLD CHISEL will headline the 2012 event, with the legendary Australian band’s exclusive festival appearance closing the main stage on Thursday 5th of April 2012.
It will be the first time that an Australian artist has ever headlined this iconic musical event. Bluesfest’s announcement is testament to the special place Cold Chisel’s music has come to occupy in Australian hearts and minds.
The band’s record breaking Light The Nitro tour is currently drawing to a close, with a final gig scheduled for Brisbane next Tuesday night. The tour has been the biggest ever by an Australian-based band; drawing nearly 300,000 fans across 36 huge shows. It’s also been unanimously hailed by critics and fans alike across Australasia.
In addition to performing classics like ‘Forever Now’, ‘Khe Sanh’ and ‘When The War Is Over’, this special Bluesfest appearance will also see Cold Chisel premiere new songs from their forthcoming album. The as yet untitled collection of new tunes was recorded over the last 2 years – partly with original drummer Steve Prestwich and partly with new drummer Charley Drayton.
