SOME of the hottest names in music are coming to the Border next month.
A Day on the Green will bring Sir Elton John to All Saints Estate at Wahgunyah on January 27 and Cold Chisel as part of the Blood Moon Tour 2020 on January 7.
The Blood Moon Tour 2020 was named after a rare lunar eclipse where the sun, earth and moon all briefly align before returning to their own orbits.
Birds of Tokyo and Magic Dirt will join Cold Chisel at All Saints Estate, which will host one of only three Victorian shows.
Cold Chisel frontman Jimmy Barnes said the 15-date tour was carefully put together.
"We've only done four tours since the early '80s so we need to make each of them count," 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."

Formed in 2004, Birds of Tokyo found a loyal following for its brand of alternative rock.
Speaking in Albury ahead of their performance at Wodonga Gold Cup, Birds of Tokyo frontman Ian Kenny relished the chance to perform on tour with Cold Chisel.
"It's going to be wild, it's going to be huge; it's going to be a bit of a beautiful education coming up really in so many ways," he said.
"Only now because we know what it takes to write a decent song, I now know the songwriting capability of Cold Chisel is second-to-none."
The tour will support Foodbank.
"Last year, Foodbank provided over 67 million meals to homeless people around Australia," Cold Chisel guitarist and vocalist, Ian Moss, said.
