Jimmy Barnes will perform an exclusive acoustic performance with his band in an intimate concert setting filmed live in Studio MAX at Foxtel studios, playing his classic hits as well as songs from his latest album ‘My Criminal Record’.
Barnes said: “It’s great to play in an intimate setting where the songs are stripped back so that the audience get to hear the lyrics a little more and get a feel for what the band was emotionally trying to do when we made the record. I look forward to playing new and old songs and let the viewers hear the essence of the songs in the rawest form,”
Barnes’ seventeenth solo studio album release, My Criminal Record, is his first rock album since 2010’s Rage And Ruin and was written by Barnes, with significant assistance from his oldest sparring partner, Cold Chisel’s Don Walker. Contributions also come from close friends Troy Cassar-Daley, Mark Lizotte (aka Diesel) and The Living End’s Chris Cheney, as well as Rodgers, Harley Webster and Jade MacRae.
Fraser Stark, Group General Manager, Foxtel’s Entertainment & Music channels said: “MAX is all about Great Music and, in addition to our classic playlists and countdowns; we are thrilled to get some of the greatest artists in music into the MAX Studio to record exclusively. On a wish list of Australian music greats, Jimmy Barnes’ name is uppermost. The man is as Australian as Vegemite and now, from within a highly-successful reflective phase in his career, delivers fantastic new work with his trademark vocals that fearlessly nail the note every time. His performance is powerful, personal and fans will delight in the material – old and new – given the hard touch that has made this icon so well loved for so long.”
Studio MAX with Jimmy Barnes screens Saturday June 1 at 12pm on Foxtel’s MAX channel and available to stream through Foxtel On Demand.
