Cessnock Primed for Jimmy's Arrival

Cessnock Primed for Jimmy's Arrival

Who: Jimmy Barnes
Where: Cessnock Ex Services Club
When: Saturday April 7, 2001

Tickets to see Jimmy Barnes live in Cessnock are still available and recent form has shown the working class man is hot.

Some critics slammed his recent release for its lack of originality, but he has proved that the fans are what really matter.

And they are why Jimmy Barnes Soul Deeper - Songs from the deep south made its Australian chart debut at three and reached platinum status within the first week of release.

Earlier this month Barnes lit up the night sky at Skyfire 2001 on the shore of Canberra's Lake Burley Griffin.

After a measly three-song set he was urged back onto the stage by an appreciative crowd.

Cladded in black, he decided to do something a little different.

He climbed off the stage, into the 'sparse' VIP area and sang a rousing rendition of Working Class Man to the fans watching him from the grass.

Barnes' show at the Cessnock Ex-Services Club on April 7 will be the first performance for him as he make a brief run through country NSW and Queensland.

After a stint in South Australia and Western Australia he will embark on a tour to the US. Check out his comprehensive website at www.jimmybarnes.com
