Jimmy Barnes lent his star profile to the Byron Bay Bluesfest on Sunday.

The rock legend, 65, entertained the crowd after he was introduced by opposition leader Anthony Albanese.  

Mr Albanese was initially met with deafening boos from revellers before receiving cheers as he promised a funding boost for the arts sector.

Jimmy dressed casually in a black ensemble as he took to the stage at the annual music festival held over the Easter long weekend. 

The announcer introduced Albanese as ‘the man that represents the working class people’ as he asked festival-goers to give the Labor leader a ‘world-class welcome’. 

Albanese approached the stage to boos, telling the crowd it was ‘great to be at Bluesfest’.

He then acknowledged the traditional owners of the land at Byron Bay.  

‘I begin by acknowledging the traditional owners of the land in which we meet, pay my respect to elders past and present and what we want is to recognise First Nations people in our constitution.’

The decry from revellers eventually quietened down before erupting into applause and cheers as Albanese hinted at arts funding if his party was elected into government. He then brought Barnes onto the stage.

‘When it comes to celebrity, the rest of the world just wants to see you fall. Fame? Money? Yes it can make life easier, but happiness is really all we have,’ he said.

‘You have to remember to enjoy the journey. Success is doing what you love. I love to sing, and I am lucky to be able to do that, and to travel the country.

‘I have been travelling this country since 1973 and there’s nothing I enjoy more.’ 

What matters most: 'When it comes to celebrity, the rest of the world just wants to see you fall. Fame? Money? Yes it can make life easier, but happiness is really all we have,' he said
