Jimmy Barnes has today announced his biggest headlining tour of this century – The Shutting Down Your Town Tour goes on pre-sale on May 31, here.

Jimmy is set to play all the classic hits we love him for, plus highlights from his acclaimed new album, My Criminal Record, which is due to release on May 31. 

“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.

This tour will be Jimmy’s first headlining gig at Sydney’s iconic Hordern Pavilion since the late 1980’s and his first ever headlining appearance at Melbourne’s Margaret Court Arena and Brisbane’s Riverstage. Special guests for most of these big shows will be Melbourne rockers Jet and Jimmy will be joined on other dates by Freo’s finest, Eskimo Joe (see show details below).

Exiting times for Eskimo Joe who are celebrating their 21st Anniversary with a stack of re-issues of their classic albums, the most recent being Black Fingernails, Red Wine on limited edition red vinyl, available here. 

For full ticketing info, go here. Members of Jimmy’s mailing list will get presale access from Wednesday, 29 May.
