Jimmy Barnes is ready to jet-set after spending a few grueling months recovering from his back and hip surgery.
The Aussie music legend shared an update with his fans, taking to his Facebook page to share his excitement at being cleared for flying by his doctor.
“We’ve got 10 out of 10, and an all clear to get on the next plane. Land of Smiles here we come. The kids will look after the veggies, roses and geese. Our next phase of Physio will be in a pool by the Gulf of Siam. Luckiest man in the world right now,” Barnes shared, along with a photo of him posing triumphantly with his doctor, Dr John Rooney, to whom he thanks, “Your work is immaculate”.

The next photo he shared was him and his wife Jane sitting in an airport lounge, ready to hop on a plane to Thailand.
“We’re through all the rigmarole of check in and customs, ready to board. Thanks for cheering me on, so much positivity has definitely helped. I still have to take it easy, hip op recovery is a long process. I’ll be working on my book, writing new music between Physio work in the pool. My Jane planning all the food. We’ll send plenty of photos,” he promised to his Facebook fans.
Barnes underwent urgent back and hip surgery in mid-December, cancelling a number of gigs for 2023.

“As everybody knows, it’s against my religion to cancel shows, or to put them off, but the doctors told me I need an operation as soon as possible and it’s going to really limit my movement for the next few months,” he said in a post to Instagram in November 2022.
“As much as it kills me, I have to get this fixed so I can jump around onstage for the next 50 years.”
