LEGENDARY Australian rockers Cold Chisel have been confirmed as the headline act for Orange's A Day On The Green concert next February.

They will be supported by Birds of Tokyo and Magic Dirt in the concert at Heifer Station Wines on Saturday, February 1, 2020.

Since their legendary Last Stand tour way back in 1983, Cold Chiselhas reformed for just four national tours and have almost always played indoors.

But the Day On The Green tour will see them play 14 very special outdoor shows in Australia and New Zealand between New Year's Eve and the second weekend of February.

It's called the Blood Moon Tour 2020 - named after a rare lunar eclipse where the sun, earth and moon all briefly align before returning to their own orbits.

"You might get to see a blood moon once in your life", the band's main songwriter and piano player Don Walker said.

"Apparently there's going to be one just before dawn when we're in Melbourne on this tour but we didn't actually know that when we chose the name. Maybe it's a sign."

Pre-sale tickets will go on-sale on Wednesday, October 16 at 2pm (local times) with general public on-sale from Monday, October 21 at 11am (local times) via official ticket links.
