We've got an absolute ripper here.
Ahead of this Friday's release of The 'Last Stand' of the Sydney Entertainment Centre - The Live Tapes - Vol 4, (get your copy at the link below) we've been given the exclusive to a stunning Cold Chisel performance for the ages.
We'll be spinning this on mix94.5. And meantime, check out the video below of "Rising Sun". Doesn't get any better than this.
In December 2015 Cold Chisel ended their massive One Night Stand tour with three special shows they dubbed The 'Last Stand' of the Sydney Entertainment Centre. These wild, unhinged and emotional shows were played immediately prior to the iconic venue's demolition and for Cold Chisel it had a double sense of occasion, given that the "Ent Cent" was the venue where Cold Chisel played their legendary farewell shows back in December, 1983 - the band not playing together again for another 15 years.
In addition to visceral, gut-busting versions of fan favourites like Letter To Alan, Houndog, One Long Day and the Jerry Lee-inspired cover Don't Let Go, there's rare appearances of the Chisel classics Ita and Janelle, the new and powerful Lost, Long Dark Road and All Hell Broke Lucy from the band's critically-hailed 2015 album The Perfect Crime and of course the undeniable anthems Choirgirl, Khe Sanh, When The War Is Over, Flame Trees, Rising Sun, My Baby, Bow River, Standing On The Outside and many more.
Containing over 32 songs - nearly 3 hours of music - The 'Last Stand' of the Sydney Entertainment Centre - The Live Tapes - Vol 4 draws its performances from the band's final two shows on 17 and 18 December, 2015 and is by far the biggest live release ever from Cold Chisel.
Renowned as one of Australia's best-ever live bands, the recording captures Cold Chisel warts and all and has then been lovingly mixed by longtime sonic ally Kevin Shirley, with the film version of the release directed and edited by the band's filmmaking constant, Robert Hambling.
To be released on Friday, 10 November, The 'Last Stand' of the Sydney Entertainment Centre - The Live Tapes - Vol 4 can be pre-ordered now on a number of formats - as a 3CD set, a 4LP Vinyl package and a Ltd Edition Deluxe 3CD/DVD set. The audio will also be available as a download and on all streaming services.
