You can’t talk Australian music without mentioning Jimmy Barnes. As front-man for the legendary Cold Chisel, he tore through the Australian music scene in the 70s and 80s, then went on to do the same as a solo artist.
A career spanning four decades, Jimmy has had 15 Top 40 albums with Cold Chisel and 15 charting solo albums – including ten Number Ones – and holds the record for the most hit albums of any Australian artist. In the live arena, Cold Chisel’s farewell tour, The Last Stand, is still the highest grossing concert series by an Australian band ever.
Daryl Braithwaite has also had an illustrious career spanning 40 years and has a recognisable voice, which is still winning audiences around the globe.
The gorgeous McClymonts – Brooke, Sam and Mollie – will be popular with the audience belting out their country-style heartfelt stories, irresistible tunes and that unmistakable honesty.
Ord Valley Events Chairman Narelle Brook said tickets are likely to sell fast with such an outstanding line up.
“We’ve got the best of the best of Australian rock royalty this year – Jimmy Barnes, Daryl Braithwaite and The McClymonts. Barnesy was hugely popular in 2011 and we’re looking forward to welcoming him back to Kununurra,” Brook said.
Tickets are also on sale for the Kimberley Kitchen and Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow with the exciting celebrity chef and comedian line up announced soon.
