(Harrison made a surprise appearance with Deep Purple at the Sydney Entertainment Centre in 1984).

Cold Chisel performed The Last Stand’ shows at the Sydney Entertainment Centre before breaking up in 1983. The performances were document for The Last Stand film and live album. “Having finished our Last Stand tour there in the year the venue opened, it’s great to now be playing at their Last Stand. We’re gonna tear the place to the ground,” said Jimmy Barnes.

“When we were asked to play this show, we didn’t hesitate,” said Ian Moss. “We love playing there, the Sydney crowds are always up for it, and it will give us and the audience a chance to tap into the venue’s history and our own history.”
