Cold Chisel Announce Additional UK Shows!Cold Chisel recently announced that they will be playing in the northern hemisphere for the first time in almost 30 years, performing alongside Bruce Springsteen, Soundgarden, Paul Simon, John Fogerty and Iggy Pop and the Stooges as part of the Hard Rock Calling weekend of shows in Hyde Park.
