Cold Chisel are about to release their first album in 14 years and to celebrate they’ve decided to stream their album launch concert at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on April 18th live across the country via satellite to cinemas in the major cities.
Fans can see the performance as it happens in HD with Dolby 5.1 sound as the band play tracks from their new album ” No Plans” as well as their classic hits.
“We’re really proud of this new album and want as many people to hear it as possible”, said frontman Jimmy Barnes. “The idea of having this gig beamed out to Cinemas seemed like a great way of getting people to hear a few of the new songs live as well as all the ones they know. We’ve played a lot of gigs around Australia over the last 35 years but this will be the first time we’ve played in over 100 places on the same night!”
The ‘ No Plans’ album features 13 new songs recorded in 2010 and 2011 and features the final recordings of late drummer Steve Prestwich who passed away last year. Fans will have the opportunity to purchase the album in an exclusive bundle with their cinema ticket.
Cold Chisel Live in Concert will be screened via satellite in all states and territories on Wednesday 18 April, 2012 – for one night only.
Tickets are on sale from www.cinemalive.com for just $39.50rrp and include a copy of “No Plans”. Ticket-only purchases of $34.50rrp are available at all participating cinemas.
The band will also be playing a special album launch show at Bluesfest Byron Bay as well as shows in Melbourne and Perth. For further details, visit www.coldchisel.com.
