I can’t remember people raving about a musician’s autobiography as much as they have for Jimmy Barnes’ Working Class Boy. My dad got a copy for Christmas and he’s barely put it down. It sold more copies in 2016 than any other adult book in the country.
The response to Jimmy’s upcoming Working Class Boy: An Evening of Stories & Songs shows, where he promises to share tales of the past and some amazing tunes, has been phenomenal. So he’s just announced some new concerts to meet the demand. Regional fans, this is what you’ve been waiting for.
There’s a presale at 2 pm today through Frontier Music. If you miss out on that, there’s a Ticketek presale from 2 pm on Monday 30 January ahead of the general sale from 2 pm on Tuesday January 31.
