Just on 10 years ago, Cold Chisel released announced the first release on their own, new label: “The Live Tapes Vol. 1: Hordern Pavilion. April 18, 2012”. The special concert set featured 21 live recordings and was released as a Deluxe 2CD/1 DVD pack; a double CD; a Blu-Ray and Standard DVD; and via digital download and on streaming services. The only thing they didn’t do was release it on vinyl!
Due to the constant requests from fans, the band has remedied that – mastering the album for vinyl and is setting a release date of Friday, February 10. This now means that all five volumes of The Lives Tapes, drawing from all stages of the legendary band’s career, are available on vinyl.
The Live Tapes Vol. 1: Hordern Pavilion captures the band in great form as they were launching their platinum studio album, No Plans. The gig came just a few months after Cold Chisel had wrapped their unforgettable “Light The Nitro” tour. The 36 dates on that run set all sorts of ticket sales records, drawing over 325,000 people across Australasia – the biggest tour ever by an Australian-based band. “We were really road hardened by the time of that Hordern gig,” remembers the band’s frontman, Jimmy Barnes. “Adding a few new songs in the set for those launch gigs kept things fresh for us. Listening and watching it back, it’s raw and primal, warts and all – like the best rock & roll should be.”
The triple album is available through the Cold Chisel online store for $79.99 – and for a limited time only we can add the 2CD/DVD version of the release for an additional $10 – for a bundled price of $89.99
