Cold Chisel Announce One New Zealand Show On The Blood Moon 2020 Tour

09 October 2019 - 0 Comments

Legendary Australian band Cold Chisel are back and today announce their one and only New Zealand show this summer. The Blood Moon 2020 Tour rolls into Wharepai Domain, Tauranga on Wednesday 5 February (eve of Waitangi Day) making it the band’s first New Zealand show in five years.

Classic songs like Khe Sanh, Flame Trees, Bow River, My Baby, Cheap Wine, Saturday Night and You Got Nothing I Want have translated across the ditch to become Kiwi summer favourites and now fans will get the chance to see them live once again!

Cold Chisel fan club pre-sale tickets will go on sale at Wednesday 16 October at 2.00pm NZDT with General Public on sale from Monday 21 October at 11.00am NZDT via Ticketmaster.
The concert will take place at Wharepai Domain in Tauranga, North Island, a premiere green field right in the centre of town!

It’s called the Blood Moon 2020 Tour – named after a rare lunar eclipse where the sun, earth and moon all briefly align before returning to their own orbits.

The Mutton Birds last played together in 2012, and now the original line-up joins the bill for the Cold Chisel concert in Tauranga. The band began in New Zealand in 1991, founded by singer and songwriter Don McGlashan, guitarist David Long and drummer Ross Burge, joined by Alan Gregg. By the mid-90's, The Mutton Birds were about as big as it is possible to be in New Zealand. They had released two platinum albums: a self-titled debut and another collection called Salty. They’d scooped music awards, and McGlashan had won the APRA Silver Scroll for his song-writing. Over the course of their career to date The Mutton Birds have released seven studio albums, two live albums and a Best Of. These albums have featured several kiwi anthems and nostalgic tunes such as Anchor Me, Dominion Road, Nature andThe Heater.

Also performing on the night is The Bads, a vehicle for the musical escapades of Brett Adams and Dianne Swann. Their live band consists of well-known drummer and producer Wayne Bell, multi-instrumentalist and producer Dave Khan, and on bass - producer, songwriter, guitarist Ben King. With four albums released to date, The Bads have an extensive catalogue to draw from. 2017’s Losing Heroes charted at #4 and received finalist status for the prestigious Taite Prize in 2018. 2005’s Earth from Space, 2009’s So Alive, and 2013’s Travel Light all received accolades and chart placings.

Sit Down In Front formed during a garage jam session, and are four childhood friends with a classic hard and fast, raw punk sound. Having recorded and self-produced their first album Red Light Runner at the ripe old age of 14 years, they have built up a solid following playing regular headline sets and opening for the likes of Villainy. The lads also got third place in the national final of the Smokefree Rockquest 2019. Their latest single Rain was recorded at Roundhead Studio’s, spent three weeks in the Official New Zealand Music Charts and received spins on The Rock. Don’t miss this exciting young band opening for Cold Chisel next February!
