Aussie rock legends Cold Chisel will headline a star-studded concert in Wollongong next year.

The band will be playing 14 outdoor shows in Australia and New Zealand.

The Blood Moon Tour 2020 will include a show on Saturday, January 25 at Stuart Park, Wollongong.

The bill will also feature Birds of Tokyo, Magic Dirt, Busby Marou and 19Twenty.

"We've only done four tours since the early 80's so we need to make each of them count," front-man Jimmy Barnes said.

"We knew that if we were going to get the band back together for another full tour it would have to be something really special.

"We wanted great line-ups and unusual places so that people would remember these gigs for a long, long time."

The band has announced that Foodbank will be supported in various ways throughout this tour including by way of special auction items and fundraising collections at each venue on the tour.

Over the course of their career, Cold Chisel has sold almost seven million albums across vinyl, cassette, CD, downloads and streaming.

They've been inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame.

Tickets will be sold via Ticketmaster.

Pre-sale tickets will go on-sale on Wednesday, October 16 at 2pm with general public on-sale from Monday, October 21 at 11am.
