Red Hot Summer Tour Announcement

With Jimmy Barnes currently recovering from open heart surgery and unable to perform at the Red Hot Summer Tour shows at Kiama Showground (NSW) on Saturday 6 January, Mornington Racecourse (VIC) on Saturday 13 January and Mary Ann Reserve in Mannum (SA), we’re thrilled to announce the expanded line ups for these already star-studded events. These three concerts in summer holiday destinations are remaining on the planned dates to minimize inconvenience to all the visitors who have already bought tickets.

Jon Stevens will be added to the three shows performing a set of Noiseworks and INXS hits, together with The Living End, Birds of Tokyo, Pete Murray, Kasey Chambers and Sam + Sam.

Closing the shows will be Jimmy’s whole live band fronted by Mahalia Barnes and featuring Oz Rock royalty: Jon Stevens, Chris Cheney, David Campbell (Mannum only) and his legendary Cold Chisel bandmate, Ian Moss, performing a very special set of classic songs by Cold Chisel and Jimmy Barnes, compiled by Jimmy himself.

The three Red Hot Summer Tour shows currently scheduled for February will be moved to April to give Jimmy time to fully recover. Those new dates are Saturday 6 April at Roche Estate in the Hunter Valley (NSW), Saturday 13 April at the Launceston Country Club in Tasmania and Saturday, 27 April at the Bendigo Jockey Club (VIC).

Unfortunately, despite all our efforts to reschedule the show in Batemans Bay currently slated for Saturday 27 January, this event will not be going ahead due to the artists’ availabilities. Ticket holders will be contacted directly by Ticketmaster and provided with a full refund.

Jimmy said, “It’s been an eventful few weeks to say the least but one thing that’s put a big smile on my face are the mates I have around me who have my back. Thank you so much to my dear friends Mossy, Jon and Chris who will be joining my wonderful, powerhouse of a daughter to perform special, unique shows for you in January with my live band. In my home state of South Australia, my son David Campbell will also join them on stage to round out this amazing supergroup of family and friends. I’m a lucky guy.

“I’m going to be working hard to get back to full strength over the next few months so I can get back on stage for you in April and join my friends from The Living End and Birds of Tokyo as well as Pete, Kasey and Mahalia & The Soul Mates on stage in the Hunter Valley, Launceston and Bendigo.”

 Ticketmaster will be in touch directly with all account holders in coming hours.

BIRDS OF TOKYO RETURN WITH “LION”

Hey guys, we’re stoked to be dropping a lyric video for our brand new single, ‘Lion‘, which is OUT NOW!

This song is about an individual who wants to redefine themself. Whether it’s career, identity or location there seem to be a lot of people making fresh starts out there post Covid so this song is tapping into that “you do you” feeling that’s kinda everywhere at the moment. It’s about embracing individuality. The song’s protagonist is trapped; she wants to break free and be her true self.

It was great to get back in the studio with Scott Horscroft who produced and mixed this track. He produced our breakout record self titled in 2010 and our most recent #1 album Human Design.

Check out the single + lyric video, we hope you dig it!
