The heart and soul of Australian rock n’ roll, Jimmy Barnes, will return to the Northern Territory on Saturday 26th September to perform his dynamic show at The Darwin Ski Club. Barnes has sold more records in Australia than any other local rock & roll artist and is best known for his stellar live performances.
Barnes joined Cold Chisel in 1973 and his vocal flair led the band to become the most powerful live act in the era of Aussie pub rock. Claiming an astronomical twelve #1 solo albums and five #1 albums with Cold Chisel, Barnes remains top of the game with a combined total of seventeen #1 albums – more than any other Australian artist. Rock legend turned master storyteller, Barnes has expanded his artistic direction and published two biographies with a third book of short stories, Killing Time, to be released on 7th October. His return to the Northern Territory will be whole-heartedly welcomed as he ignites the stage at The Darwin Ski Club on Saturday 26th September.
“It’s been over 6 months since we finished the Cold Chisel tour and I went on what I thought would be a short holiday. Well, thanks to Covid that holiday has become the longest one ever and I’m chomping at the bit to play live again. We can’t wait to hit the sun in Darwin at the end of the month and play some rock ‘n roll!” – Jimmy Barnes 28.08.20
