#WorkingClassBoy

Jimmy Barnes has just announced a 2nd Launceston show has been added to his upcoming Working Class Boy: An Evening of Stories & Songs tour on Thursday, 2 February at the Country Club Showroom and tickets are on sale now.

The previously announced Launceston show on Saturday, 4 February has sold out as has the Regent Theatre show in Melbourne.

The “Stories & Songs” shows will bring Jimmy’s #1 bestselling memoir, Working Class Boy, to life through a combination of spoken word performance and some music that relates to his life story.

After a record breaking fifteen #1 albums, Jimmy Barnes can now also say he’s a chart topping author. His acclaimed childhood memoir “Working Class Boy” was officially Australia’s top selling book for three weeks according to Bookscan and has been #1 on thenon fiction chart for 6 weeks.

Tickets for all remaining dates are selling fast and fans are reminded to follow the ticket links here so as to avoid ticket reselling sites which typically sell tickets at much higher prices.

Jimmy has recently leant his voice to two worthy causes – the Luke Batty Foundation who work to raise awareness about all forms of domestic violence and a new, national television campaign for The Song Room, a national not for profit organisation, aimed at driving funds to buy musical instruments for underprivileged kids.  Three out of four children in Australia do not have access to specialist music education at school and The Song Room provides face to face, long-term music and arts-based programs for children in disadvantaged and high need communities. The Song Room also provides innovative, curriculum-aligned online arts education to over 75% of Australian schools through the free ARTS:LIVE platform.
