Aussie rock royalty to join 12,000 Pan Pac masters

Australian rock icon and founding member of Cold Chisel Ian Moss will headline the Pan Pacs entertainment program when the Masters Games come to town. Held from 1 – 9 November, the entertainment program will be one of the biggest in the event’s history with more than 12,000 competitors, officials and supporters expected over the eight nights.

Ian Moss is best known for his work with Cold Chisel, but five years after the group disbanded, he released his critically acclaimed solo album Matchbook and went on to releases a further seven solo albums. He’s also joined Chisel on a heap of reunion tours which served to reinforce his status as one of Australia’s greatest guitarists.

During the Pan Pacific Masters Games, Moss will be joined by Brian Mannix from Uncanny X-Men, Boom Crash Opera’s lead singer Dale Ryder, Kids in the Kitchen’s Scott Carne and Ally Fowler from The Chantoozies.

In addition, every night of the week, a celebrated house band and resident DJ will propel the celebrations well into the night with more artists to be announced in coming weeks.

Events Management Queensland CEO Cameron Hart said this year’s entertainment program is an exciting addition to the premier multi-sport event.

“The entertainment program adds so much excitement and flare to the Pan Pacific Masters Games and we’re sure our attendees won’t be disappointed with the incredible atmosphere each night, in particular the opening and closing ceremonies,” Mr Hart said.
