Jimmy Barnes is shutting down towns all around New Zealand with his 'Shutting Down Your Town' tour this September.

The self-proclaimed "Rock 'n Roll singer, born in Scotland who lives in Australia" is returning to New Zealand for three shows. Playing all your favourite Cold Chisel anthems, the set list also includes tracks from his new "heartland rock & roll" album, My Criminal Record, set to be released on Friday, 31 May. 

My Criminal Record is Barnes' first original studio rock album in over a decade. He is crossing the ditch for his NZ fans, who he "really loves".

'Barnesy', "the heart and soul of Australian rock & roll", kicked off his career with Oz rock band Cold Chisel in the 1970s. He is widely known for his solo classics, 'Working Class Man' and 'Ain't No Second Prize'.

After reading Barnes' best-selling memoir, Working Class Boy, songwriter Troy Cassar-Daley wrote Barnes' latest single 'Shutting Down Our Town' especially for the rock and roll legend. The single is currently a radio hit and is a taste of what's to come on the rest of the album.

"It’s been ten years since I made an original rock record and I can’t wait to get out there and play these songs, along with all the old favourites, to a live audience. It’s going to be great," Jimmy said.

Tickets go on sale to the general public at midday on Friday, 31 May.
