To mark the 30th anniversary of his debut as a solo artist, Jimmy Barnes will be performing four theatre shows in New Zealand this November.
The Australian rocker, beloved for sharing the tales of the blue collar worker, will be performing two of his classic albums in full, For the Working Class Man and Freight Train Heart, plus his greatest hits in Dunedin, Christchurch, Auckland and Hamilton.
Over his 40 year career, Barnes has gone on to become the Australian artist with the highest number of hit albums with 14 Top 40 Albums for Cold Chisel and 13 charting solo albums in Australia - not to mention ten number ones. This special 30th Anniversary release "30:30 Hindsight" (Liberation Music) revisits some of Barnes’ biggest hits, featuring collaborations with his favourite artists, including Shihad, Jon Stevens, Keith Urban, Bernard Fanning, and Tina Arena.
Fronted by kiwi singer Jon Stevens and also featuring ex-members of Guns n Roses and Whitesnake, rock super-group The Dead Daisies will be joining Barnes on his New Zealand tour as the opening act.
