Cold Chisel will reunite next month for a one-off show in honour of a man who has had a tough, hard working life with barely any recognition … Sir Prince Phillip.
Chisel will perform in Canberra on February 26. “We’re looking forward to playing at the Royal Theatre”, said piano player Don Walker in a statement. “We’re thinking of dedicating the show to Prince Phillip, who really doesn’t get enough recognition.”
As a further tribute to the underprivileged Sir Price, Cold Chisel have chosen the appropriate venue, Canberra’s Royal Theatre for the show.
“There’s a great energy about really seeing the whites of people’s eyes at gigs like this”, says the band’s frontman, Jimmy Barnes comparing a gig to the thrill of a fox hunt. “It’s always that bit more intense.”
Cold Chisel will use the show to road-test some new songs shortlisted for their next studio album.
The Canberra show is being treated as a warm-up for a larger tour to be announced soon.
