After successful runs around the world, including 12 years on the West End, the Townsville Choral Society will bring this smash hit to the Townsville Entertainment and Convention Centre in February 2018.

 

Built around the music of Queen, We Will Rock You is a journey to a future dystopian Earth, where music is banned and downloads are the norm. However, a small group of "Bohemians" struggles to restore the free exchange of thought, fashion, and – most of all – live music. Packed with hits such as Somebody To Love, Under Pressure, I Want To Break Free, Don’t Stop Me Now, and of course, Bohemian Rhapsody, this production will have everyone stomping their feet.

Working Class Man: An Evening of Stories & Songs will be the sequel to the acclaimed and hugely successful live show Jimmy performed alongside his first bestselling memoir - “Working Class Boy”. Like that previous production, this new tour will see Jimmy telling his life story and singing stripped back versions of songs that have shaped his journey. However, unlike its predecessor, this live show - and book - will cover the Oz rock icon's entire adult life, revealing the successes and excesses of Australia's greatest rock ’n roll story.

 

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. As he says in the preface to "Working Class Man”:

 

“In book one I faced the damage that a broken home and a broken heart can bring. In book two I face the impact that a childhood like mine can have on a man. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not blaming anyone for any of this. We all do the best with what we have. But in book two the blame rests squarely on my shoulders, and until I work a lot of things out I carry a lot of baggage around with me ...

 

I have done a lot of great things. I have a beautiful family and wonderful friends. But there were many times, dark times, that I almost let it all slip through my fingers. In the end I asked for help. I used to think that if someone asked for help they were weak. But the toughest thing I ever did was reach out and ask for help. And that was when I started to heal."
