Jimmy Barnes cancels solo shows

Australian music legend Jimmy Barnes has been forced to cancel upcoming solo shows due to ill health.

Barnes was taken ill earlier today (26th July) and subsequently sought a doctor’s advice. ¬†According to a statement, there were concerns his illness may be heart related, though these have proved unfounded.

How many shows will be cancelled in the near future is unknown, but Barnes is not expected to return to live performance any time over the next month.

He hopes to be fighting fit at the beginning of September when he starts rehearsals for an upcoming tour with his band Cold Chisel.
