JIMMY Barnes will return to Warrnambool later this year as part of celebrations marking his 30 years as a solo artist.
Barnes released his first solo record Bodyswerve in 1984 — the same year his band Cold Chisel parted ways and released their then-final record Twentieth Century.
Barnes’ Warrnambool show will be at the Lighthouse Theatre on November 14 and will be an “intimate acoustic” gig.
It is one of just 10 shows the iconic singer has announced, which have been squeezed in between his commitments with the Day On The Green tour, a slot opening for The Rolling Stones in Adelaide, and a spot on the bill at the Deni Ute Muster.
Barnes is also marking the anniversary by releasing 30:30 Hindsight — a CD collection that includes re-recordings of many of his hits with a cast of guest stars including The Living End, Bernard Fanning, Keith Urban, Baby Animals, Journey, Shihad and more.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday.
