03/01/2018 - 19/04/2018 JIMMY BARNES – WORKING CLASS MAN: AN EVENING OF STORIES & SONGS

Working Class Man: An Evening of Stories & Songs is the sequel to the acclaimed and hugely successful live show Jimmy performed alongside his first bestselling memoir – “Working Class Boy”.This new live show and book – both written by Jimmy – begins in 1974 as he leaves Adelaide in the back of an old bread truck with a then-unknown rock group called Cold Chisel. They trace the legendary band’s long climb to the top and their subsequent implosion. The story then picks up as Jimmy carves out a new solo career for himself. He becomes the country’s biggest rock star before drugs and alcohol bring him to his knees and he eventually rebuilds his life thanks to the love of his wife and his family. It’s a spellbinding and searingly honest reflection on success, fame and addiction. “… anyone seeking an emotional, dark, funny, exciting theatrical event — and a powerful singer still in great voice — will be thrilled” – Sunday Mail SA Presented by Triple M and MAX. The tour will also help promote the good work of Lifeline. Age Restriction Recommended for 18yrs+ contains some strong language and adult content
