FANS of Aussie band Cold Chisel will have a chance to see the band on the big screen in Mackay this month.

A special screening of their Sydney performance will be held at Mount Pleasant Birch Carroll and Coyle cinemas on April 18.

The exclusive live concert event will be shown via satellite, while the band performs live.

The band will play songs from their new album No Plans as well as classic hits.

Cold Chisel vocalist Jimmy Barnes said he was proud of the band's new album No Plans.

"The idea of having this gig beamed out to cinemas seemed like a great way of getting people to hear a few of the new songs live as well as all the ones they know," Mr Barnes said.

"We've played a lot of gigs around Australia over the last 35 years.

"But this will be the first time we've played in over 100 places on the same night."

The album No Plans has 13 songs which were recorded in 2010 and 2011 and it's the first album Cold Chisel has released in 14 years.

The songs also feature the final recordings of drummer Steve Prestwich who died last year.

Not only will Queensland fans see the performance but also residents from all the other states and territories.

Tickets can be purchased from cinemalive.com for $39.50. A copy of the band's album No Plans has also been included in the price of the ticket.

Ticket-only purchases are also available for $34.50.
