Jimmy Barnes Is Shutting Down Your Town!

Jimmy Barnes has today announced he will be jumping across the ditch on the –Shutting Down Your Town Tour- 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 out across New Zealand this September with tickets to all shows going on sale to the General Public on Friday, 31 May.

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 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’.



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”.

“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.
