In December 1983, Cold Chisel played the final show of their final tour – the wonderfully named ‘The Last Stand’ – at the Sydney Entertainment Centre, which had opened seven months earlier. Thirty-two years later, Chisel returned for the venue’s “Last Stand” (the Entertainment Centre has been bulldozed to make way for an apartment block).
Recorded over two nights, Chisel farewelled the venue in fine style, with 32 songs. Every album is represented, and the band is blistering. Chisel remain a pure force.
Live Tapes Vol 4: The Last Stand Of The Sydney Entertainment Centre is out now via Universal.
