Our good mate Barnsey has just proven once again he’s just like the rest of us when he dropped in to chat with Botica’s Bunch on Monday – he’s absolutely jonesing for some live music.

His last gig was back in February, touring with Cold Chisel.

“I had expected to take some time off as I’d been doing some back-to-back touring, but I didn’t think we’d be forced [to take] this long a break,” Barnsey said.

He and wife Jane had an almost daily presence on social media during that time, and fans made one thing very clear – everyone was hanging out to actually go to a gig, particularly a big summer festival-like show.

So, on that note, we have an announcement.

On Saturday, April 10, Jimmy Barnes will headline the Red Hot Summer Tour at the gorgeous Sandalford Wines in the Swan Valley.

Headlining means, of course, there’s a bunch of other acts on the bill, and no joke, it’s a dead-set cracker, including the Hoodoo Gurus, Jon Stevens, Diesel, Vika & Linda and Chris Cheney.


Which, as Barnsey said, you could pair each act with a wine…
