Lismore rockers Grinspoon are reforming to join iconic Australian rock band Cold Chisel on an upcoming tour of Australia.

Grinspoon frontman Phil Jamieson said he honestly did not think that Grinspoon would be playing together again.

‘So to get this opportunity by such a legendary act is humbling and completely out of the box insanely totally crazy fun.

‘Now, what the hell am I going to wear?”

Cold Chisel’s new album will be called The Perfect Crime and will hit stores on Friday, 2 October coinciding with the first gig on their One Night Stand tour at the Deni Ute Muster.

Cold Chisel frontman Jimmy Barnes said Grinspoon was a great support band for Cold Chisel.

‘We’ve done a couple of really memorable shows with Grinspoon,” Barnes said.

‘They played with us on our huge return show at Homebush Stadium in 2009 and they joined us for one show on the Light The Nitro tour in 2011 and that just happened to be the biggest show of the tour. They’re a great band and a really good fit with Cold Chisel.”

Phil Jamieson agreed.

‘The show we played on the Light The Nitro tour was one of the most memorable shows I have ever played in my life! Arm in arm, all of us – Pat, Joe, Kris and I. Singing at the top of our lungs to ‘Flame Trees’. Grinspoon have never been arm in arm before. It was a moment. I think I may have even fallen into a bush in my excitement.’

Grinspoon have been added to the already-announced One Night Stand shows at 1300SMILES Stadium in Townsville on Saturday, 7 November and at the Darwin Amphitheatre on Tuesday, 10 November.

They will also join Cold Chisel in Adelaide, Melbourne and on all three shows at the Qantas Credit Union Arena in Sydney.
