Big Day Out with Jimmy Barnes






















The Vietnam version of the Australian Big Day Out was held on Saturday, with none other than iconic Aussie rocker Jimmy Barnes headlining the show. Born in Scotland, raised in Adelaide and later on bourbon, Jimmy has the distinction of having the highest number of hit albums of any Australian artist, while also claiming fame as the godfather to a generation or two of bogans. Surprisingly, the night was fantastic

Were you dressed in a flanno, smoking winnie blues and trying to shag a girl called Shazza?

And where was Farnsey?

When I clicked on the "bogans" link I thought it would be the wiki entry for the Tin Lids

E - Yup, he played Khe Sanh and indeed, the crowd went off

Anon - 3 "no's" to your first three questions. Wish I knew a bird called Shazza though. To your 4th question - shouldn't Farnsey be in jail along with his manager?

Bruce - two of the Tin Lids were his back up singers on the night

I think you will find Barnsey doused himself in vodka every night on stage rather than bourbon

Babzy, you are as lucky as Radman. To have not heard Barnsey is like a gift from the Gods. Do not look for him, I repeat, do not search and listen to him anywhere online. Otherwise you will leave your heart to the sappers round Khe Sanh

Obviously there is some humor in the commentary here that people who have no idea who the hell Barnsey is cannot laugh about. Some explanations please
