Australian music legend and Cold Chisel lead guitarist Ian Moss brought his own intimate acoustic show to Geraldton’s Queens Park Theatre last week.

Just because it was an acoustic show does not mean it wasn’t brought with high energy in a pocket-sized rock show of its own.

Two 45-minute sets were scattered with Cold Chisel classics, such as My Baby, Flame Trees and Choir Girl, plus his own solo hits, Telephone Booth and Tuckers Daughter.

Moss also played hits from his latest self-titled album.

A highlight for the crowd, and indeed Moss, was the chorus sing-along to Chisel’s Saturday Night.

The night was finished with the classic Bow River.

The way Moss worked his guitar you could see he still has a pure passion, which is quite special to watch.

The small crowd on March 6 was a far cry from when he and his band mates from Cold Chisel rocked more than 3000 people in Geraldton in 2015.

It was a shame more people didn’t head along to witness this ARIA Hall of Famer.
