Jimmy Barnes Reschedules National ‘Flesh and Blood’ Tour

“I would rather be on stage than nearly anywhere else in the world but I would never want to endanger any of our Australian music fans,” Barnes explained.

Just days after it was first supposed to kick off, iconic vocalist Jimmy Barnes has revealed that his national ‘Flesh and Blood’ tour will now begin in September.

Having originally announced the run of tour dates back in April, Barnes was due to hit the road on Friday, in support of his latest album, Flesh and Blood. However, due to the uncertainty of border closures, Barnes last week postponed Friday’s Perth date until August, with Frontier Touring noting that no other dates were affected at that time.

Now, the full tour has been rescheduled for September, with ongoing uncertainty cited as the reason behind the decision.

“I would rather be on stage than nearly anywhere else in the world but I would never want to endanger any of our Australian music fans,” Barnes explained in a statement. “So due to COVID, I have had to reschedule my shows.

“I didn’t want to postpone and postpone, week after week so we’ve moved the shows back by a month or so. I hope we get on top of this by then and we can all celebrate live music together again.”

The new run of dates will now kick off in Brisbane on Thursday, September 2nd, before wrapping up in Perth on Wednesday, September 22nd. While all current tickets will be honoured at the upcoming shows, full details can be found via the Frontier Touring website.
