Ian Moss: Matchbook 30th Anniversary Tour
1989. Bob Hawke is still Prime Minister, Canberra and Hawthorn are NRL and VFL Premiers, the Berlin Wall came down and Bart Simpson became a TV superstar. Tim Burton’s Batman was released and the 14th Dalai Lama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. It was also the year acclaimed Cold Chisel co-founder and guitarist Ian Moss stepped out front and centre, to release what would become a milestone Australian album – Matchbook.
Six of the album’s 10 songs – including Tucker’s Daughter – were written by Cold Chisel bandmate Don Walker; two were co-written by Moss and Walker; and one co-written by Moss, Walker and Cold Chisel drummer, Steve Prestwich.
Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of his iconic debut, Mossy and his four-piece band will hit the road in November and December 2019 for a national six-week run which will see the globally respected songwriter and legendary guitarist performing iconic tracks from Matchbook plus more fan favourites.
