Working Class Man: An Evening of Stories & Songs
Friday 11 May 2018
Jimmy Barnes’ highly anticipated new memoir “Working Class Man” will be accompanied by a special national tour in 2018!
Working Class Man: An Evening of Stories & Songs will be the sequel to the acclaimed and hugely successful live show Jimmy performed alongside his first bestselling memoir - “Working Class Boy”. Like that previous production, this new tour will see Jimmy telling his life story and singing stripped back versions of songs that have shaped his journey.

Working Class Man: An Evening of Stories & Songs is presented by The Sound and Sunday Star Times. The tour will also help promote the good work of Lifeline (www.lifeline.org.nz) as Jimmy will be drawing further attention to the issues of addiction and mental health in both his new book and live show.
