Jimmy Barnes Touring This Summer

Monday 13 November 2006

Jimmy Barnes is coming back to New Zealand with his "In The Heat Of The Night" tour. Jimmy and his band will be playing Whangarei, Mangawai, Coroglen, Waihi, Mt Maunganui, Napier, New Plymouth, Motueka and Wanaka.

Last December Jimmy Barnes got a unique taste of New Zealand, playing the summer beach circuit for the first time with the tour completely sold out.

This kind of tour is unique in the world. In the Xmas/New Year period towns and venues that during the year are inhabited only by locals get descended upon by thousands of holiday makers. Local watering holes are transformed into proper concert venues with circus tents erected in carparks, marquees over beer gardens, scaffold stages, portaloos and mobile generators.
