Jimmy Barnes has announced a national tour, set to take place in support of the Aussie rock legend’s forthcoming album, ‘Flesh And Blood’.
Details of the tour were given today (April 25), exactly one month since the Cold Chisel frontman announced the July 2 release of his 19th solo album and dropped its title track, which you can watch below.
Kicking off in July at Perth’s Riverside Theatre, Barnes will embark on a six-date national tour, ending in Sydney. According to a press release, members of Barnes’ extended family will also feature in his performances.
“It’s great to be back playing live again”, Barnes said. “It was good to get some downtime at home for a change but now we’re hungry to get back on stage together.
“If 2020 taught me anything it’s that Facebook and YouTube videos can be fun but they’re no substitute for a real gig.”
Pre-sale tickets for the ‘Flesh And Blood’ tour go on sale May 3 through Frontier Touring, with general sales opening May 5. Find the full tour dates below.
The unifying concert event – conceptualised by Barnes and the late Michael Gudinski – made its return in 2021 to mark the national day of remembrance, after the success of its inaugural event last year brought together Australians during the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.

Friday 16 – Adelaide, Thebarton Theatre
Thursday 22 – Melbourne, Palais Theatre
