Following the announcement that Australian rock royalty Cold Chisel will be reuniting for a huge national tour kicking off later this year, the iconic band sold over 150,000 tickets to 16 shows within hours.

“We’ve been completely blown away by the public response today,” Cold Chisel singer Jimmy Barnes said in a press release in early June. “We know a lot of people missed out and will be feeling disappointed, but the demand has been bigger than we’ve ever seen for any of our other tours.

“We’re now scrambling to try and add a few more gigs in late November, so hopefully, we’ll have some more news about that in the coming week.”

Fast forward to June 12th, and the band have officially added six new shows in the Hunter Valley, Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Tickets will be on sale on Tuesday, June 18th.
