National Flesh & Wood acoustic tour announced
ONE NIGHT ONLY - NO EXTRA SHOWS WILL BE ADDED!
Following sell-out shows as part of his 2014 30:30 Hindsight tour, Jimmy Barnes is once again getting ready to pack his bags and hit the stage for the Flesh and Wood Acoustic Tour 2015, commencing in Brisbane on Friday, 3 July before heading to Toowoomba, Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne for one night only over the following weekends.
In 1993, Jimmy Barnes gathered a few friends to help record his seventh album, Flesh and Wood, which included duets with some legendary Australian and international artists, including Diesel, Archie Roach, Ross Wilson, Tommy Emmanuel, Don Walker, Deborah Conway, The Badloves and the late, great Joe Cocker. The album featured many of Jimmy’s, and Cold Chisel’s, hits as well as some well-known covers, and was recorded fully acoustically.
The Flesh and Wood Acoustic Tour 2015 will feature Jimmy and a nine-piece band, augmented by a luscious string section, performing songs from the Flesh and Wood album as well as some of his biggest hits and favourite songs as you’ve never heard them before, using only acoustic instruments but still with Jimmy’s trademark rock ‘n roll swagger. Jimmy and the band will perform the full, over 2-hour show (two sets).
Barnes’ latest album, 30:30 Hindsight, debuted at No. 1 on the ARIA Album Chart, giving him his 10th solo No. 1 album, and reaffirmed his title as the Australian artist with the most No. 1 albums of his career with a total of 14 (4 with Cold Chisel). Throughout his 30-year solo career, Jimmy Barnes has sold over 6 million albums and performed to almost as many concertgoers, continuing to pick up new generations of fans along the way.
“Last year’s regional Flesh and Wood shows on the 30:30 tour were almost as much fun as recording the album in the first place. It had been a long time since I’d sung a lot of the tracks and it was great to perform them all again acoustically as they were on the album. The show is broken up into two parts so I’ll get the chance to tell some stories as well as sing all these great songs with the band and an added string section when we take the show around the country in July” - Jimmy Barnes
Tickets to Flesh and Wood Acoustic Tour 2015 go on sale at 10.00am local times on Friday, 24 April 2015, and are expected to sell FAST!
