Hot on the heels of announcing his metro Matchbook 30th Anniversary Tour dates, Ian Moss has, due to demand, announced further dates and will be taking the iconic album on the road across Victoria, New South Wales and Tasmania from February 2020.
Mossy’s debut album Matchbook was released on 1 August, 1989 and peaked at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart. It remained in the Top 10 for an amazing 14 weeks, shipping more than 200,000 copies in the first 12 months alone and went on to see “Mossy” take away Album of the Year, Best Male Artist and Breakthrough Artist – Album, Breakthrough Artist – Single and Song of the Year (shared with Don Walker) for Tucker’s Daughter, as well as being nominated for Single of the Year at the 1990 ARIA Awards.
Six of the album’s 10 songs, including Tucker’s Daughter, were written by Cold Chisel bandmate Don Walker; two were co-written by Moss and Walker; and one co-written by Moss, Walker and Cold Chisel drummer, Steve Prestwich.
Ian said, “Touring into the heartland that is regional Australia has always been something that I have looked forward to for over 40 years, especially meeting the fans & hearing their stories. The audiences have always been supportive, and I’m looking forward to getting back out there next year and sharing this special Matchbook 30th anniversary with them”
