Legendary Aussie rocker Jimmy Barnes has announced his biggest headlining tour since the turn of the millennium, which will feature many of his classic hits.

The Shutting Down Your Town Tour will see Barnes and his band, plus support acts Eskimo Joe and Jet travel across the country and New Zealand from September. They will play WIN Entertainment Centre on Thursday October 3.

This tour will be the Cold Chisel frontman's first headlining gig at Sydney's iconic Hordern Pavilion since the late 1980's and his first ever headlining appearance at Melbourne's Margaret Court Arena and Brisbane's Riverstage.

He will also play songs from his new album My Criminal Record which is released May 31 - with the current single Shutting Down Our Town, written by Troy Cassar-Daley.

"It's been ten years since I made an original rock record and I can't wait to get out there and play these songs, along with all the old favourites, to a live audience", Barnes said.

Fans are reminded to only buy tickets by following the direct ticket links listed here. People who choose to ignore this clear advice and who instead use search engines like Google to find tickets typically get steered to unofficial reselling sites like Viagogo that often lead to rip offs.

Tickets to all seventeen shows will go on sale to the general public on Friday May 31. Presale tickets for Frontier members and the Jimmy Barnes Fan Club begin Wednesday May 29.
