JIMMY BARNES TO HEAD ICONIC MUSIC FESTIVAL
Australian rock ‘n roll legend, Jimmy Barnes, is set to head a stellar cast of Kiwi music legends when Selwyn Sounds returns to the Lincoln Domain on March 3rd next year.
Jimmy Barnes is the heart and the soul of Australian rock & roll. After 40 years on stages of all kinds, Jimmy is an icon – his nickname “Barnesy” conjures up thoughts of rock music at an ear-splitting volume, and of soul standards given a unique reading. Jimmy has been through it all, and lived to tell the tale and that has earned him a place in Australia’s heart and heartland. Along the way he has sold more records in Australia than any other domestic rock & roll artist. Jimmy’s live shows are legendary for their intensity.
The Cold Chisel frontman and bestselling author will be joined by The Feelers, Mental as Anything, Stellar, The Mockers, The Narcs, The Lady Killers (Tina Cross, Jackie Clarke and Suzanne Lynch) and The Warratahs.
Organiser and Lincoln resident David Parlane said the line-up is sensational and he is excited to have secured such a world class act to headline the show.
David Parlane and partner Craig Bradford organised the first Selwyn Sounds music festival this year because they knew what a great venue Lincoln Domain would be, and they wanted to bring together some of Australasia’s best acts in one place.
It was a vision that paid off, when more than 7500 packed into Lincoln Domain for the inaugural concert in March.
“This year’s concert was so well received we’re still getting positive feedback now, months after the event. So we had to do it again – and make sure next year’s event was even bigger and better!” He said.
Mr Parlane said the organisers had learnt from the last event and will be making sure amenities are top notch and that every possible step is taken to ensure everyone has a great time.
A limited number of early bird tickets tickets for Selwyn Sounds are available on Ticketek now and tickets will go on sale to the General Public on Wednesday 5 July, 10am local time. You can secure yours by clicking here.
