By Bernadette Chua Two of Australia's most celebrated performers, Jimmy Barnes and Kate Ceberano, will be gracing the stage of the Enmore eatre for two highly anticipated concerts in the lead-up to Christmas. Jimmy Barnes, the former frontman of the legendary rock out t Cold Chisel, has just released his 16th album, Rage and Ruin, which combines the best of his hard rockin' roots with some tender folk ballads. e album, released on August 27, debuted at number three on the Australian charts. e rst single ' e Devil Knows You're Dead' has already had plenty of airtime on radio stations all around the country. According to Barnes the lyrics on the album express a wide range of emotions, from self-doubt, anger to pessimism, as he charts the pivotal moments of his life -- from the early days of Chisel to the present day. At the Enmore shows, the legendary rocker will be performing some of his classic hits from the days of Cold Chisel along with tracks from his explosive new album. e following month sees the return of the much-loved Kate Ceberano to the Enmore. e songstress will be performing all her old hits as well as some Christmas tunes to jumpstart the festive season. Celebrated for her rich and soulful voice, the ARIA-winning singer and songwriter is releasing a special Christmas album, including Jingle Bells, Have Yourself a Merry Li le Christmas, Santa Baby and many more. Ceberano, who shot to fame in the 1980s with I'm Talking, has been in the music industry for 25 years, nding success on stage, in the studio and through her appearances on Dancing With the Stars. e combination of these two legends performing at one of Sydney's favourite theatres is a great way to kick o the festive season.
