Newcastle Live can exclusively reveal that Australian legend, Jimmy Barnes will play two intimate shows at Lizotte’s in Newcastle on September 12 and 13.
It is only on a rare occasion that an opportunity presents itself to get up close and personal with your favourite artist. Someone who can easily sell out huge venues, but chooses to play very special shows in an intimate room.
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.
Last time Jimmy played at Lizotte’s in Sydney, Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman even rocked up surprising ticket holder. Keith joined Jimmy on stage for several songs including the Cold Chisel classic, Flame Trees.
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.
