Jimmy Barnes is returning to Canberra in what will be his biggest headlining tour of this century, Shutting Down Your Town.
The tour will see Jimmy and his band heading across Australia and New Zealand playing his classic hits plus highlights from his new album My Criminal Record, which is due out on May 31.
Special guests for his Canberra show at Theatre Royal on October 31 will be WA rockers Eskimo Joe, while Melbourne's Jet will join him at Barnes' Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane shows.
'Barnesy' is a key part of the Australian music landscape and over recent years his bestselling memoirs Working Class Boy and Working Class Man, and their accompanying sold-out theatre tours, have struck a deep chord across his homeland.
Now, his upcoming tour is a chance for him to return to what he loves most - electrifying audiences with one of the greatest catalogues in the history of rock, featuring Cold Chisel anthems, solo classics like Working Class Man and Ain't No Second Prize.
For release: Wednesday, May 22, 2019: Jimmy Barnes' Shutting Down Your Town tour will see him play all his classic hits plus highlights from his acclaimed new album, My Criminal Record.
2019 finds Jimmy Barnes older, smarter, healthier, and for his new album, he has distilled and expanded upon his two best-selling memoirs to create 13 pieces of burning, heartland rock. It is said to resonate with anyone who has ever found themselves standing on the outside, looking in.
Members of Jimmy's mailing list will have the opportunity to access pre-sale tickets (excl. Tullamore) from 2pm on Wednesday, May 29 until 2pm on Thursday, May 30.
Tickets go on sale to the public from Ticketmaster on May 31.
