If you don't yet have your tickets to see Jimmy Barnes in concert at Tullamore in November, you had better get in quick.

As of late last week, half of the allocated tickets had already been snapped up.

Organiser Megan Mortimer said VIP tickets sold out on the first day.

"We sold 1000 tickets in eight minutes," she said.

"It's amazing looking at who's bought them - people from Newcastle and he has a concert in Newcastle, Victoria and he has concerts in Victoria, also people from Sydney and Queensland.

"We are reminding locals to get in and buy tickets because they might miss out.

"I think we are all a bit relaxed in the country and we think 'I'll get them soon', but the risk is it might be sold out when you get around to it."

Jimmy Barnes will take to the stage in Pola Park, Tullamore, on Saturday, November 2, with special guests Troy Cassar-Daley and The Daisy Dukes as part of his national Shutting Down Your Town tour.

Megan said what she likes most about the event is that it's a well known act on a world class stage and it's coming to Tullamore.

"A lot of country people don't travel to concerts in Sydney because of the cost," she said.

"So we are bringing these fancy concerts to the country.

"I think it's a really good opportunity that people shouldn't miss out on, it's the only regional show."

Camping is available at Tullamore Showground and Western Roadliners will be running buses from Parkes.

There will also be camping in Trundle and Albert with shuttle buses running to and from the concert.

"Tullamore is only little and if we have all those campers, you'll be able to see the lights from space," Megan laughed.

"It's already lifted the town, people are coming together.

"It's giving everyone something to look forward to, it's definitely given everyone something to talk about.

"We have to take the opportunity while it's here, live music is so good for mental health."
