Cold Chisel To Play Made In SA Concert

in News

Cold Chisel will perform for the 20th anniversary of the Adelaide 500 in March.

The hometown return for the iconic band will feature a line-up curated by Chisel with Kasey Chambers and Bad//Dreams as well as two local acts setting the bill.

Cold Chisel formed in Adelaide in 1973.

“Adelaide was and will always be ground zero for us, our home turf, our training ground. For better or worse it made us who we are,” says frontman Jimmy Barnes. “We’re excited to be going back to play this special ‘Made In SA’ show. Kasey is a legend and a good mate. I’ve sung with her many times and when Cold Chisel reunited in the studio 2010, Kasey’s brother Nash produced our single, ‘All For You’, which was the last-ever session we did with our dear friend Steve Prestwich. Bad//Dreems are one of the best bands to come out of Adelaide in the last decade and our mate Mark Opitz, who produced some of our best recordings, has made both of their albums so we’ve got a connection to them too.”

“With so many international artists, and even some Australians, skipping South Australia on their ‘national’ tours, we wanted to put together a concert for the 20th Anniversary of this iconic rock & roll weekend that made the state proud.”
