Bar­nesy’s tour a gen­uine plea­sure

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - LIVE ’N’ LOUD -

THE Jimmy Barnes Wel­come to the Plea­sure House tour is shap­ing up to be a fam­ily af­fair. The Aussie rocker has now added his brother Swanee, brother-in­law Diesel and pal Adam Brand on to var­i­ous stages of the tour. Barnes’ open­ing act for many of the shows will be his daugh­ter Eliza-Jane and mu­si­cal part­ner Ceci as Evil J & Saint Ce­cila. His other daugh­ter Mahalia will also sing with him on many of the shows. Feels Right, a new, un­re­leased song from Barnes, was recorded with Mahalia in Am­s­ter­dam in June. The Wel­come to the Plea­sure House tour takes its name from Barnes’ new song Plea­sure House cowrit­ten with Jack­son and Har­ri­son Freud, the sons of the late James Freud. All ticket hold­ers will re­ceive a free down­load of the song. ‘‘I am writ­ing songs for a new al­bum at the mo­ment and I thought it might be nice to give fans a taste of things to come,’’ says Barnes. ‘‘So I have de­cided to give any­one who buys a ticket to the show a copy of a new song I wrote with Jack­son and Har­ri­son Freud. The song is called Plea­sure House and I have de­cided to name the tour af­ter the song. So, Wel­come to the Plea­sure House, let’s all have a wild time.’’ The 23-date tour kicks off on Au­gust 4 in Can­berra and ends on the Sun­shine Coast on Septem­ber 29.

Jimmy Barnes plays Twin Towns Tweed Heads on Au­gust 11.
