The legendary Australian rock band, Cold Chisel will headline the inaugural Coates Hire Newcastle 500 on Saturday, 25th November.
Cold Chisel is one of the most renowned Australian rock bands. The group has a history that spans forty years and a catalogue of songs and albums that are ingrained in the nation’s culture. Their classic song ‘Star Hotel’ was inspired by the riots that erupted in Newcastle when the famous band venue was shut down.
This will be the first time Cold Chisel has played in Newcastle since their massive Light The Nitro tour back in 2011.
The three man band, hailing from the small southern NSW town of Finley, have been writing and playing together for 21 years.
Spiderbait are known for their eclectic range of music inspired by a diverse range of genres. One of their most notable albums, Ivy And The Big Apples, sold over 180,000 copies and earnt the band several ARIA Awards. Their 2009 stomping hit, Black Betty, earned the band even more success.
Having toured extensively locally and overseas, Spiderbait will join Cold Chisel on the Saturday of the Newcastle V8 Supercars.
