Jimmy Barnes Returns On The Road With 'Shutting Down Your Town' Tour This September and October

Aussie rock legend Jimmy Barnes is hitting the roads this September through to October with his massive 'Shutting Down Your Town' tour. Launching at Mackay Entertainment & Convention Centre, Jimmy will perform his classic hits plus highlights from his acclaimed new album 'My Criminal Record' all the way to Townsville Entertainment & Convention Centre, Munro Martin Parklands in Cairns, WIN Entertainment Centre in Wollongong and Hordern Pavilion in Sydney. He will also be stopping by Melbourne's Margaret Court Arena, Adelaide Entertainment Centre, Toowoomba's Empire Theatres, Brisbane Riverstage, Newcastle Entertainment Centre with the final show happening at Theatre Royal in Castlemaine.

Twenty nineteen finds Jimmy Barnes older, smarter and healthier. For his new album 'My Criminal Record' (due out this 31 May 2019 via Bloodlines), he has distilled and expanded upon his two best-selling memoirs to create 13 pieces of burning, heartland rock & roll that will surely resonate with anyone who has ever found themselves standing on the outside, looking in.

'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 touched hearts and inspired lives across his homeland. He now returns to do what he loves most—electrifying audiences with his great catalogue 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'.

"It's been ten 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 said.

Don't sleep on your chance to witness the great Jimmy Barnes tearing up stages this September through to October with his 'Shutting Down Your Town' tour!
