A whole bunch of major Aussie rock magic is happening

Cold Chisel have not only managed to work their magic on a ripping new album and an Aussie tour that’s already selling out venues like hotcakes.
Their reemergence has now convinced homegrown rockers Grinspoon to reform and support the Cold Chisel tour!
Grinspoon, who announced that they were taking an “indefinite break” two years ago, have now released a statement confirming the reformation.
“To say we are excited to be supporting Cold Chisel is an understatement,” said frontman Phil Jamieson.
“I honestly didn’t think Grinspoon would be playing together again, so to get this opportunity by such a legendary act is humbling and completely out of the box insanely totally crazy fun,” adds Jamieson.
“Now, what the hell am I going to wear?”
Grinspoon, a band with 18 years, 13 ARIA nominations and over 1,000 shows under their belts, announced that they were taking a break in 2013.
But the boys say that “at the end of it all we are a band who just really love playing live,” said Jamieson.
“It’s the same four idiots who started this stupid band and it is really comforting to know they are still with me…I truly believe that’s where we are at our best.”
