Better stock up the pantry, Gold Coast, cause bonafide legend Jimmy Barnes will be shutting down the town when he hits HOTA, Home of the Arts for one sure-to-sell-out night on 20 October.
Yesterday, Jimmy Barnes announced his biggest headlining tour of this century –’Shutting Down Your Town’ – playing all his classic hits plus highlights from his acclaimed new album, ‘My Criminal Record’, released Friday 31 May 2019 on Bloodlines.
The ‘Shutting Down Your Town’ Tour will see Jimmy and his band heading across Australia and New Zealand in September, October and November with tickets to all seventeen shows going on sale to the General Public on Friday 31 May. Members of Jimmy’s mailing list will get presale access from Wednesday, 29 May. And for those who want to be guaranteed that they don’t miss out, a special limited edition deluxe package of his new album unveiled online today comes with a guaranteed A Reserve ticket to one of the shows marked with an “*” below, and an exclusive t-shirt (click here for more info).
Special guests for the HOTA show will be Melbourne rockers JET.
‘Barnesy’ is the heart and soul of Australian rock & roll. 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 it’s time to finally return to what he loves most – electrifying audiences with one of the greatest catalogues in the history of Oz rock with the Shutting Down Your Town Tour featuring Cold Chisel anthems, solo classics like ‘Working Class Man’ and ‘Ain’t No Second Prize’ plus his current radio hit, ‘Shutting Down Our Town’.
