Ian Moss is heading back to a time Bob Hawke was our Prime Minister, Kylie Minogue starred in The Delinquents and he released his first solo album Matchbook.
Moss is hitting the road again to relive hits like Tuckers Daughter, Telephone Booth and Out of the Fire to celebrate the album's 30th anniversary.
The tour will cover Thirroul, Canberra, Melbourne, Brisbane, Newcastle, Adelaide and Perth - but don't call the man a "rock star".
"I don't think of myself as a rock star, I'm a musician who obviously doesn't take it all for granted and has enjoyed some great success," he told the Mercury.
"It's a real kind of day by day industry, really, because you write your songs and you get into it, enjoying what you're doing but ... it's a lot of sweat and frustration and going through periods thinking that you're crap.
"You don't ever assume anyone's going to like it."
At the time, Matchbook hit number one on the ARIA Albums Chart and remained in the Top 10 for 14 weeks. It earned the singer-songwriter Album of the Year, Best Male Artist and Breakthrough Artist at the 1990 ARIA Awards.
Today, Moss still manages to draw a crowd with many familiar faces, some expressing their love for the star while others may express "cringe-worthy" memories.
"Oh my parents are big fans, I was conceived while they were listening to ...," he laughed.
Once this tour wraps up, the Cold Chisel guitarist is getting together with his band-mates to write new songs and see what may be worthy for a new album.
Ian Moss will play an all ages show at Anita's Theatre on November 8, with Mark Wilkinson in support. Tickets for all shows are on sale now through www.frontiertouring.com/ianmoss
