Jimmy Barnes has returned to work. Jimmy played his first show since his heart surgery at Byron Bay on Sunday. It was his first stage appearance since Mushroom 50 on 26 November. Days later, he was fighting for his life after a bacterial infection spread to his heart.

For Jimmy’s first show back at Bluesfest he was not alone. Tommy Emmanuel, Bernard Fanning, Josh Teskey and Ian Moss made guest appearances in the show, the first of the Hell of a Time shows coming up immediately after the five Red Hot Summer shows.

The Hell of a Time tour will mark the 30th anniversary of Jimmy’s acoustic album ‘Flesh and Wood’ from 1993. At Byron Bay on Sunday, the setlist revolved mostly around that album. On the original album Tommy Emmanuel played on ‘Brother of Mine’ and returned for the same song in the Bluesfest set.Josh Teskey of The Teskey Brothers sand ‘The Wight’ with Jimmy, Bernard Fanning of Powerfinger sang ‘I’m Still On Your Side’ and Jimmy’s Cold Chisel compadre Ian Moss was there for the Chisel triple ‘When The War Is Over’, ‘Flame Trees’ and ‘Khe Sanh’.

"Paul went away and started the label and George went away and wrote the song”, he said.
