Jimmy Barnes - Working Class Man: An Evening of Stories & Songs

Please Note:  Roadworks taking place. Click here for more info.

City of Perth is currently undertaking paving works outside the Perth Concert Hall building. For safety reasons, walkways between the Terrace Road outdoor carpark and the venue will be restricted on the night.

To be sure you don’t miss out on any of the show, please allow additional time to get to the venue. The show will begin at 8pm sharp.

Working Class Man: An Evening of Stories & Songs is the sequel to the acclaimed and hugely successful live show Jimmy performed alongside his first bestselling memoir - “Working Class Boy”.

This new live show and book - both written by Jimmy - begins in 1974 as he leaves Adelaide in the back of an old bread truck with a then unknown rock group called Cold Chisel. They trace the legendary band’s long climb to the top and their subsequent implosion. The story then picks up as Jimmy carves out a new solo career for himself. He becomes the country’s biggest rock star before drugs and alcohol bring him to his knees and he eventually rebuilds his life thanks to the love of his wife and his family. It’s a spellbinding and searingly honest reflection on success, fame and addiction.
