A severe duststorm on Saturday nearly led to the cancellation of the much-awaited Jimmy Barnes show at Tullamore, but more than 5,000 fans were very happy it went ahead.
Jimmy said on his official Facebook page “a dusty sandstorm couldn’t spoil a great time. They call me the rainmaker and Troy Cassar-Daley is known as ‘Stormboy’ and together with a rockin’ crowd the rains came down. So happy for the farmers who have struggled through years of drought.”
The fans could not agree more with lots of praise and compliments handed out for the event.
Parkes resident Janine Hando said the whole weekend was a credit to the Tullamore and surrounding communities. “The whole show was fantastic. The dust storms gave the many out of town visitors a taste (literally) of what it is like living in a drought.”
Another fan on the Jimmy Barnes page said: “Wind, dust, then a short shower on 5,000 plus people – truly amazing, enjoyed every minute of it.”
Another said it was an amazing concert. “The dust didn’t worry me, incredible atmosphere.”
Seems like Tullamore was rocked like it had never been before.
