30 years on and Jimmy Barnes is still rocking! To celebrate this extraordinary milestone as a solo artist, Jimmy has recorded 30:30 Hindsight, his 15th studio album, alongside announcing the second series of what will eventually be 30 tour dates across Australia.
In addition to his already announced A Day On The Green shows and special guest slot with the Rolling Stones in Adelaide, Jimmy Barnes will be travelling from Canberra, to Warragul, to Port Pirie and a whole bunch of towns in between.
Over his 40 year career, Barnes has gone on to become the Australian artist with the highest number of hit albums with 14 Top 40 Albums for Cold Chisel and 13 charting solo albums in Australia - not to mention nine number ones.
Jimmy Barnes' tour announcement coincides with the release of a special anniversary album on 29 August 2014. The album titled 30:30 Hindsight (Liberation Music) revisits some of Barnes' biggest hits, featuring collaborations with his favourite artists, including Keith Urban, Bernard Fanning, Shihad, Tina Arena, Baby Animals and Jon Stevens. The new recordings are brilliantly complemented by the original hit versions selected from Jimmy's lengthy and hugely successful solo career.
The first single released from the anniversary album is 'Lay Down Your Guns' featuring The Living End, the original version of which hit number one in 1990.
