Jimmy Barnes background
Jimmy Barnes was born in Glasgow, Scotland, and his family emigrated to Australia in 1956 when he was four-years-old. Barnes joined the rock band Cold Chisel which would go on to become Australia's most popular band of the 1980s. Part of Cold Chisel's appeal was Jimmy himself and the singer's incredible stage presence. Jimmy Barnes was famous for crouching with intensity as he sang (and often shouted) into the microphone with all his might.
In 1984, after the break-up of Cold Chisel, Jimmy Barnes released his debut solo album Bodyswerve. Taking with him Cold Chisel's huge audience, what followed was number one record after number one record. In total, Jimmy Barnes has released 14 Australian top 40 albums with Cold Chisel and 13 charting solo albums, giving him the accolade as Australia's most successful recording artist! This is your chance to hear some of Jimmy Barnes best songs live in concert.
