Ian Moss announces new 16-track ‘LIVE’ album

Recorded at Canberra's The Playhouse and Sydney's Enmore Theatre in 2018

Cold Chisel guitarist Ian Moss has announced a new 16-track live album, due for release on July 24.

The album, entitled ‘LIVE’, features recordings from Canberra’s The Playhouse and Sydney’s Enmore Theatre from 2018. The album features Cold Chisel classics including ‘Bow River and My Baby’, ‘Tucker’s Daughter’ and ‘Telephone Booth’, as well as ‘Broadway’, ‘My Suffering’ and ‘Hold On (To What We Got)’, from Moss’ self-titled 2018 album.

To celebrate the announcement, Moss has shared a live performance video for ‘Never Before’, shot at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on July 14. Watch it below:


The digital-only album will also include a four-page booklet download.

“It was great to be back out and touring Australia with a big band full of extraordinary talent and exceptional musicians and playing to some of the best audiences I’ve ever played to,” said Moss in a press statement.

“The crew we had on the road with us were some of the best in the business and of course, having the new studio album, ‘Ian Moss’, full of songs, with me at the helm of the songwriting to play was fantastic.”
