Jimmy Barnes Announces Shutting Down Your Town Tour

Jimmy Barnes Announces Shutting Down Your Town Tour

Jimmy Barnes has today 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 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).

This tour will be Jimmy's first headlining gig at Sydney's iconic Hordern Pavilion since the late 1980's and his first ever headlining appearance at Melbourne's Margaret Court Arena and Brisbane's Riverstage. Special guests for most of these big shows will be Melbourne rockers JET and Jimmy will be joined on other dates by Freo's finest, ESKIMO JOE (see show details below).

'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.

2019 finds Jimmy Barnes older, smarter, healthier, and for his new album My Criminal Record, he has distilled and expanded upon his two best-selling memoirs to create 13 pieces of burning, heartland rock & roll. It will resonate with anyone who has ever found themselves standing on the outside, looking in.

And you won't find a better example of the newfound subtlety and strength in Jimmy's voice than the current single, Shutting Down Our Town, which was written by Troy Cassar-Daley especially for Barnes, after Troy finished reading "Working Class Boy". Troy will also be appearing as Jimmy's special guest at the Tullamore show.

"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.
