Chisel still on track for Coffs

COLD Chisel’s gig in Coffs Harbour would seem secure despite Jimmy Barnes being ordered to rest.

Chisel’s front man has been struck down by viral flu and his doctors have ordered him off the road until the end of August.

His illness was announced on his website – http://www.jimmybarnes.com/ – on Tuesday.

“Jimmy recently completed a gruelling European tour and returned to Australia just in time for the launch of Cold Chisel’s tour last week. He had been battling a lingering viral flu for some time,” the announcement stated.

He is however expected to make a full recovery in plenty of time to begin rehearsals with Cold Chisel in September for what should be a sellout tour.

“From my point of view it is business as usual and tickets go on sale next week,” said Coffs Harbour promoter John Logan.

The boys are due to perform under their own big top at the Stadium Dr hockey fields on Friday, November 4.
