WHEN it comes to legendary Australian rock singers, they don't get much more iconic than Jimmy Barnes.

Best known initially as the voice of Australian rock band Cold Chisel, Barnes famously sang with them songs that are part of the fabric of our great land.

Despite numerous Chisel reunions, since 1983, Jimmy Barnes has primarily been recognised as the internationally acclaimed solo artist he is today.

In that time he has become one of the country's most successful artists, with more hits in Australia than just about anyone, including: Working Class Man, When Something Is Wrong With My Baby and many more.

The Scottish-born singer has released 16 solo albums - nine of which topped the charts - and been inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame twice.

The 57-year-old is now set to return to Ipswich in August to play at the Ipswich Civic Centre on August 7 as part of his 2013 national tour.

It is chance for rock fans to see Jimmy Barnes at his best and enjoy an extensive catalogue which has made him an icon in the Australian music scene.

Tickets for the Ipswich show went on sale last Tuesday and saw a record number of sales in its first day of release.

But don't despair Barnesy fans, as of yesterday Ipswich Civic Centre reported that there were still 500 tickets still available.
