This clip is an excerpt from a one-off live concert performance at the Sydney Opera House by Jimmy Barnes for the Foxtel program Max Sessions.

Before the song 'When Your Love is Gone', Jimmy tells a funny anecdote about performing the song years ago with his young children (as The Tin Lids) doing backing vocals. 

This footage captures Jimmy's versatility as a performer. Beautifully filmed, the multiple use of cameras – some on cranes and others hand-held – do justice to Jimmy and the backing band while also picking out celebrities in the audience, such as Australian fast-bowler Brett Lee.

The Max Sessions tagline is 'A live and intimate performance', and there are usually only around 30 or so people invited to join the audience. Under quite cramped conditions the crew have done well to cover the event so effectively.
