BY THE C Barnes-storming lineup

Zaccaria Concerts & Touring have announced the lineup for a new series of By The C concert events around Australia next year.

Perth will get its dose of the action at Hillarys Beach Park on Sunday, March 20, 2022, with a stellar lineup of artists featuring Jimmy Barnes, Mondo Rock, Ian Moss, Diesel, Vanessa Amorosi, and 1927.

Jimmy Barnes has sold more records in Australia than any other local rock and roll artist. He has enjoyed eighteen #1 albums here and for over 40 years he has delivered some of our most intense and iconic live performances. Flesh And Blood, Jimmy’s twentieth studio album, was released in July 2021 and debuted at #1.

For more than a dozen years Mondo Rock dispensed punchy, craftily professional, adult pop-rock. Between 1977 and 1991 the Australian charts were enriched and enlivened by their sleek and proficient offerings. The first Mondo Rock came together in February 1977, the band’s first single The Fugitive Kind made top thirty nationally – the first of 17 Mondo Rock hits.

Respected as one of Australia’s iconic musicians, Ian Moss was primarily recognised as a tenacious axeman in Cold Chisel. His distinctive vocal is the essential signature of his soulful, bluesy muse, across six dynamic studio albums – the #1 and multi-platinum, Matchbook, Worlds Away, Petrolhead, Let’s all Get Together, Soul on West 53rd and the self-titled Ian Moss.

Mark Lizotte aka DIESEL grew up in Australia and in the U.S. forming the band Johnny Diesel & The Injectors in 1986 from remnants of a previous band before embarking on a solo career in 1991. With over thirty-five singles, sixteen albums, six ARIA awards and record sales edging one million, DIESEL is a journeyman of music.

This far into her stellar career, Vanessa Amorosi has sold over two million records worldwide, received sixteen ARIA and APRA nominations, and performed at the Sydney Olympics. In 2019 Vanessa released her fifth studio album Back To Love followed by an Australian solo tour and successful festival tours. In March 2020, Vanessa released her first single Coming Down Off You from her album titled The Blacklisted Collection, which was her first record as an independent artist.

Way before Australian Idol and The Voice existed, a wily kid named Eric Weideman was talent-spotted after a scorching performance on Red Faces for Hey Hey It’s Saturday! Weideman teamed up with former Moving Pictures songwriter Garry Frost, his brother Bill Frost and James Barton to form 1927.

They gigged until they were tight then landed a hit with smoky, rocking chugger That’s When I Think of You. It was the first single taken from debut album …ish (1989), which topped the album charts and helped the band win at the 1989 ARIA Awards for Breakthrough Single and Breakthrough Album.

On top of the live music, By the C is set to feature food trucks, pop-up bars, and a selection of refreshing beverages.

By the C hits Hillarys Beach Park on Sunday, March 20, 2022. Tickets on sale Saturday, November 27 from
