Barnesy is the heart and soul of Australian rock 'n' 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 both New Zealand and Australia.
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.
This year, 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 'n' roll. It will resonate with anyone who has ever found themselves standing on the outside, looking in.
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.
