Due to overwhelming demand, Jimmy Barnes has added a second and final Sydney show to his ‘Soul Deep 30 Tour’.

With the first Sydney show on Friday, June 24th sold out, Barnes and his 12-piece band will now perform at the city’s Aware Super Theatre on Saturday, June 25th.

Barnes and his band will also be joined by special guests on the tour, including The Teskey Brothers (excluding Adelaide), David Campbell (Adelaide only), and Mahalia Barnes + The Soul Mates (all dates).

Three decades ago, Soul Deep became one of Barnes’ most acclaimed releases. The stunning collection of 60’s R&B was certified 10x platinum in Australia and remains his highest-selling album ever. Soul Deep also earned him the 1992 ARIA Award for Best Male Artist.

To celebrate its 30th anniversary, the iconic album has now been reimagined and extended for the suitably-titled Soul Deep 30. The 12 original Soul Deep recordings have been remastered by Bob Ludwig, with additional production from Don Gehman.

The Soul Deep 30 tour will attempt to recapture some of the magic of the classic original Soul Deep tour, with Barnes’ 12-piece band performing all the hits off this album as well lots of other R&B classics.

“I’ve always been particularly proud of Soul Deep,” Barnes says. “It was made for all the right reasons and there was something magical about the way it struck a chord with so many people. here’s a reason that all those great sixties songs are called “timeless” – the raw stories they tell make sense to every generation.

I’m really looking forward to revisiting this music again live after all these years too. Hopefully we can remind people why they enjoyed this album so much first time around while also introducing it to a whole new audience.”

Frontier Members can access presale tickets for the new Sydney show on Monday, May 16th at 12pm AEST. Tickets then go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, May 18th at 10am AEST via frontiertouring.com/jimmybarnes.

Jimmy Barnes’ Soul Deep 30 is set for release on Friday, June 3rd and can be pre-ordered here.
