Jimmy Barnes to play Dunedin on New Zealand tour

Jimmy Barnes fans rejoice – the Australian music legend and his band Soul Deep have finally set a tour date in Dunedin.

The Working Class Man singer will debut his new album in arenas and theaters in Dunedin, Christchurch, Auckland and Wellington in July.

Kicking off on Wednesday July 20 at Dunedin City Hall, the Soul Deep 30 Tour will travel to Christchurch Arena on Thursday July 21, Spark Arena in Auckland on Saturday July 23, before concluding at the Michael Fowler Center, Wellington, Monday July 25.

General public tickets will go on sale from Thursday, May 19.

Barnes will take advantage of this Aotearoa tour to perform his new album Soul Deep 30 which he will release on June 3.

Soul Deep 30 is a reimagined and expanded version of its original triple-platinum record which was recently named by Rolling Stone as one of Australia’s 50 greatest albums of all time.

Now, this 30th anniversary cover will feature three new recordings, a revamp of Do You Love Me, an unreleased collaboration titled Reflections with Cold Chisel bandmate Ian Moss, and a new mix of debut single I Gotcha.

Fans can expect to hear all of the remastered songs from the original album as well as many R&B classics.

Opening for Barnes each night will be soul and blues singer Mahalia Barnes and her band the Soul Mates.

She will be followed by Polynesian singer-songwriter Karen Lee Andrews.

Jimmy Barnes was originally due to perform his Flesh and Blood tour in New Zealand last year but was forced to postpone due to uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 border closures. However, this tour will be very different and will feature a whole new setlist.

Fans who had tickets for these canceled dates (Flesh & Blood Tour) will have access to tickets for these show dates first and will be contacted directly by the box offices.
