Jimmy Barnes To Perform Classic Albums In Full At New Shows

Jimmy Barnes has announced two very special shows in Sydney and Melbourne this October as part of his 30:30 Hindsight Tour, performing two of his most celebrated albums, 1985's For The Working Class Man and 1987'S Freight Train Heart, in their entirety plus additional hits from across his extensive career.

Barnesy fans at these shows will be treated to a delightful trip down memory lane, with the two classic records boasting such hits as Working Class Man, I’d Die To Be With You Tonight, No Second Prize, Too Much Ain’t Enough Love and Waitin’ For The Heartache.

An new date at Darwin’s Botanic Gardens Amphitheatre and an extra show at Warragul’s West Gippsland Arts Centre have also been added to what will eventually be a list of 30 tour dates across Australia.

The new “album show” dates coincide with the release of 30:30 Hindsight, which is available from Friday, 29th August. The album celebrates Barnesy’s decades-long reign as the king of Aussie rock and roll — 30 years as a solo artist, if you’re pedantic — and revisits some of his biggest hits as collaborations with his favourite artists.

Music Feeds recently caught up with Barnesy to discuss the record. He explained that while his label originally suggested a tribute album to mark 30 years, he jumped at the chance to step in the studio with his amtes. “Why would I wanna get all my favourite bands and not sing with them?” he said.
