If yesterday wasn’t enough, here we are with some more great Cold Chisel news.

We’re excited to announce that our One Night Stand tour will be visiting New Zealand in December. Our show at the Horncastle Arena, Christchurch on Friday, 4 December will mark the first time we have played the South Island since our Last Stand tour in 1983.  We then travel to Villa Maria Winery for a huge show on Sunday, 6 December.

The last time we were in NZ was 2011 when we played sold out shows at Vector Arena in Auckland and TSB Bank Arena in Wellington.

“New Zealand has always been great to Cold Chisel and we can’t wait to play there on our One Night Stand tour,” said frontman Jimmy Barnes“I can’t believe it’s 30 years since we last played Christchurch. That’s way too long! And then a huge Auckland show… Bring it on!”

Support act for both NZ shows is the legendary Supergroove!

Supergroove is one of New Zealand’s best-loved live bands. The impressive eight piece ensemble always bring the party. With a catalogue of some of the most iconic kiwi hits including Can’t Get Enough, You’ve Got To Know To Understand and Sittin’ Inside My Head, Supergroove are sure to get the crowd warmed up ahead of Cold Chisel in Christchurch and Auckland.

Opening the evening in Auckland is The Bads. Brett Adams and Dianne Swan have released three albums as The Bads and have toured the globe extensively performing their special blend of folk-country music. They’ve opened for the likes of Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris and also collaborated and performed with Cold Chisel’s Don Walker in a series of gigs in recent years.
