Jimmy Barnes’ brand new memoir, Working Class Man has gone straight to #1 on the book charts today.

The critically acclaimed memoir has sold over 20,000 copies, knocking ‘Da Vinci Code’ author Dan Brown from the #1 spot.

Working Class Man has sold more than any memoir/autobiography/biography – local or international in Australia.

If that’s not enough, the first book by Barnes, Working Class Boy has returned to the top 10.

The Working Class Man: An Evening of Stories & Songs tour has also struck a deep chord around Australia with shows in Thirroul, Canberra, Cairns, Newcastle, Bathurst, Frankston, Sydney and Melbourne all selling out already.

As a result, a second and final date at the Canberra Theatre Centre has already been added on Sunday, 18 March. New shows have also been announced at the Brisbane City Hall (10 April), Sydney Town Hall (2 May), Newcastle Civic Theatre (6 June), Melbourne’s Palais Theatre (9 June) and the Thebarton Theatre in Adelaide (10 June) with tickets for those dates going onsale at 9.00am local times today.

It seems Jimmy is just as stoked as his fans, saying;

“It’s not often I’m lost for words but this is about as close as I get. I spent decades trying to keep all this stuff hidden from people but it turns out that talking about it is the best thing I’ve ever done. On behalf of my liver I just wish it had occurred to me to do it a bit sooner!”

Working Class Man & Working Class Boy available here

Working Class Man: An Evening of Stories & Songs is presented by Triple M and MAX.
The tour will also help promote the good work of Lifeline (www.lifeline.org.au) as Jimmy will be drawing further attention to the issues of addiction and mental health in both his new book and live show.

To coincide with the release of “Working Class Man”, Bloodlines/Mushroom has released a limited edition, commemorative version of one of the greatest Australian rock albums of all time, For The Working Class Man, which includes a never before released DVD from the legendary Playroom in Queensland in 1984 and Cold Chisel's The Last Stand Tour is out November 10th, with Triple M having an exclusive preview video, watch here
