Cold Chisel great and co-songwriter of iconic '80s pub-rock ballad 'Tucker's Daughter', Ian Moss will celebrate the 30th anniversary of his solo album 'Matchbox', with an eight-date national tour.
1989 was the year Bob Hawke was PM. Bart Simpson became a household name. The Berlin Wall came down. It was also the year Chisel's guitarist and founding member Ian Moss would release 'Matchbox'.
The album would assist Ian at the 1990 ARIA Awards, winning 'Album Of The Year', 'Best Male Artist' and 'Breakthrough Artist – Album'. At the same ceremony Moss won 'Breakthrough Artist – Single' and 'Song Of The Year' (shared with Don Walker) for 'Tucker's Daughter'.
"Like my loyal fan base, 'Matchbook' has been very good to me," Ian says, "and it has allowed me to travel and play music that has been embraced by fans all over Australia and abroad. And for that, I am very grateful."
Joining Mossy on this tour is Sydney's Mark Wilkinson, whose latest album, 'Blue Eyed Girls', has seen the former busker sell over 70,000 copies to date, landing at #1 on Australia's Independent Albums Chart.
The six-week run, which will see the globally respected songwriter performing iconic tracks from 'Matchbook' plus other fan favourites, visits Sydney, Wollongong, Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra, Newcastle, Brisbane and Perth.
