Calling all Geraldton and the Mid West musicians, do you want the chance to open for legendary Aussie rock legends Cold Chisel? Well, this is your chance!
As part of the upcoming Cold Chisel ‘One Night Stand’ tour, one lucky local musician or band from Geraldton or the Mid West will be given the opportunity to be the official support act for the concert.
The City of Greater Geraldton will be running a social media competition where local musicians and bands can submit a five minute video which will be displayed on the City Facebook page for the community to vote and choose their top six bands.
The top six bands will then be in the running to become the support act for Cold Chisel, which will be decided by Cold Chisel management and announced on Friday 30 October.
Not only will the winner get to support Cold Chisel, they will also win a $500 cash prize and get to enjoy the concert side of stage after their performance.
City of Greater Geraldton Deputy Mayor, Neil McIlwaine, said it was a great opportunity for a local act to be able to support one of Australia’s most iconic bands.
“This is a big opportunity for a local musician or band and we encourage people to give it a go,” he said.
If you are a local band or solo musician and think you’ve got what it takes to support Cold Chisel, check out the City of Greater Geraldton Facebook page for more information.
