This is very exciting news, Aussie rock legend Jimmy Barnes will be appearing at the fabulous Lizotte’s Newcastle for two rare intimate shows on Monday, September 12 and Tuesday September 13

Wild-child, rock star, soul man, statesman – Jimmy Barnes has covered some ground to become an Australian icon.

You can’t talk Australian music without mentioning Jimmy Barnes. As front-man for the legendary Cold Chisel, he tore through the Australian music scene in the 70s and 80s, then went on to do the same as a solo artist.

In a career that spans over four decades, it’s easy to lose sight of just how incredible his achievements are.  How is this for a taster?  Across his recorded output, Jimmy has had 15 Top 40 albums with Cold Chisel and 15 charting solo albums – including ten Number Ones – and holds the record for the most hit albums of any Australian artist.  In the live arena, Cold Chisel’s farewell tour, The Last Stand, is still the highest grossing concert series by an Australian band ever.

These kind of up close and personal performances are always something special but particularly where Jimmy is concerned. If you are lucky enough to grab a seat to one of these shows it will be a dinner show experience you will never forget. It will also leave you with no doubt why Jimmy Barnes is one of the most legendary statesmen of Aussie Rock.


The shows go on sale tomorrow, these will sell fast so book early to avoid disappointment !
