Cold Chisel: Jimmy Barnes was singing better than he has since Cold Chisel reformed last year. Ian Moss had escaped the attack of the killer cat. And inside the Hordern Pavilion, with new songs strung between old favourites, the crowd was hot, heavy and happy for the final show in this return of the biggest Australian band of the 1980s. Shame that the national cinema simulcast wasn't quite able to capture the same energy. The idea is far from dead though and will be back. Like the band itself.
