As part of what will be the biggest headlining tour of his career—the 'Shutting Down Your Town' tour—rock icon Jimmy Barnes is heading back to New Zealand for a trio of performances in Dunedin, Christchurch and Auckland this September. His NZ dates are interspersed between his upcoming AU shows happening in Mackay, Townsville, Cairns, Wollongong, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Toowoomba, Brisbane, Newcastle and Castlemaine.
The 'Shutting Down Your Town' tour will see Jimmy "Barnesy" Barnes playing all his classic hits and highlights from his latest studio album 'My Criminal Record'. Fans are sure to sing along as Barnesy starts singing all-time favourite Cold Chisel anthems, solo classics 'Working Class Man' and 'No Second Prize' plus current radio hit 'Shutting Down Our Town'.
"It's been 10 years since I made an original rock record and I can't wait to get out there and play these songs, along with all the old favourites, to a live audience. It's going to be great!" - Jimmy Barnes
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. With his latest single 'Shutting Down Our Town', Barnes has showcased the newfound subtlety and strength in his voice, thanks to the award-winning muso Troy Cassar-Daley—the man who wrote the song after finding inspiration from Barnes' 2016 memoir.
Don't miss your chance to witness Jimmy Barnes in these invigorating evenings of September!
