Jimmy Barnes 30th Anniversary National Tour Dates With The Living End

Jimmy Barnes, the reigning king of Australian rock and roll, has announced a national winery tour to celebrate 30 years as a solo artist. This special set of tour dates, presented by A Day On The Green, will take Barnesy to incredible wineries in New South Wales, Queensland, Tasmania, and Victoria.

The 30th anniversary tour coincides with the release of Barnesy’s 30/30 Anniversary album, for which one of Australia’s most treasured vocal powerhouses re-recorded 15 of his biggest hits with a raft of big-name collaborators, including Keith Urban, John Farnahm, Bernard Fanning, and more.

Also featured on 30/30 Anniversary are the mighty Living End, who feature on the album’s first single, a powerful new rendition of the Barnesy classic Lay Down Your Guns. The punk rock veterans will be joining Barnesy for all shows on his upcoming anniversary tour as special guests.

The man with the legendary rasp is also giving this tour a unique edge. Part of the show will feature the Jimmy Barnes Greatest Hits Spinning Wheel, featuring 30 classic Barnesy tracks. Fans will be invited onstage to spin the wheel to determine which songs Barnesy and the band then perform.

“This year is so important for me, so I wanted this tour handled by people who love music and who care about the tour and A Day On The Green do it the best,” the Aussie rock icon himself explained. “They run it really well and they know how to look after an audience. I’ve done a lot of them over the years and Cold Chisel has done them too. It’s such a great way to get to play to the public.”

“Also I’m so excited about working with The Living End because they’re just so bloody good. They’re so ferocious as a band. They’re friends, they’re not really a support act – it’s a bill to make it the best show. So I’m going to have to work really hard, and I love that. We’re going to have a great time.”

Readers can check below for all dates and details for Jimmy Barnes’ upcoming 30th anniversary winery tour, which in addition to The Living End, will feature an extensive roster of support acts, including Baby Animals, You Am I, Ian Moss, Troy Cassar-Daley, Mahalia Barnes, and more.
