"Rock with Chisel at Bilo Rockfest | GoRockfest.Com - The Latest Rockfest, Artist's Live News"
THE last plane out of Sydney’s almost gone.
The famous chorus of Cold Chisel’s iconic Khe Sanh will waft across Queensland Heritage Park in Biloela on Saturday night at the Rockfest.
Tribute band Chisel Revived is the headline act and will pay homage to the careers of Aussie music icons Cold Chisel and Jimmy Barnes.
With classic hits to their name such as Flame Trees, When The War Is Over, Working Class Man and the R&B swing of Higher and Higher, Cold Chisel and Jimmy Barnes have given the public some of the best music ever heard on Australian airways.
Fronted by the searing vocals of Tim Carter, you will feel as if Cold Chisel has indeed been revived.
Carter’s backing band features top-class musicians who diligently reproduce the unique sounds of Cold Chisel and Jimmy Barnes.
Carter, 38, told CT he grew up on Chisel, and he was clearly a big fan of the pub rockers.
"Cold Chisel is the best thing Australia ever produced, in my opinion," Carter said.
He said he loved the variety of the band, with country songs such as Khe Sanh, rock hits like You Got Nothing I Want and reggae tunes like Forever Now.
He said with other acts such as ACDC, Savage Garden or INXS, you knew what you were getting, but he said you could not pigeonhole Chisel.
"They are the most original band and no one else comes close," he said.
Gates to the Kurrajong Amphitheatre open at 4.30pm, with bands taking centre stage from 5pm until late, and entry is $10.
If it rains, the event will be moved to the CDMPC shed at the rear of the complex.
Any Given Sunday and Temple Mount will also hit the stage.
This year will see the launch of the first ever Biloela Rockfest CD, which will be sold at Saturday’s event.
