This tour will be Jimmy's first headlining gig at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion since the late 1980s, and his first ever headlining appearance at Melbourne’s Margaret Court Arena and Brisbane’s Riverstage.

Speaking about the new album, Barnes said, “It’s been 10 years since I made an original rock record and I can’t wait to get out there and play these songs, along with all the old favourites, to a live audience. It’s going to be great!”
