Jimmy Barnes | Hoodoo Gurus | Jon Stevens | Diesel | Vika & Linda | Chris Cheney

*** SOLD OUT ***

The 2021 RED HOT SUMMER TOUR line-up hardly needs an introduction to audiences, it features Australian music royalty.  Jimmy Barnes, affectionately known by all as Barnesy, is the heart and soul of Australian rock and roll. He released his 17th solo album, My Criminal Record, in 2019 and recently dropped a new single, the haunting co-write with Don Walker Killing Time, which featured the Australian Chamber Orchestra. His third book, Killing Time: short stories from the long way home, debuted at #1 on the non-fiction book charts.

Hoodoo Gurus are one of the country’s favourite bands, melding together their distinctly Australian sound with a big chunk of punk attitude, making them a formidable force for more than 35 years.  This is a band that helped give loud guitars a new lease of life, back when synthesisers ruled the airwaves back in the early ‘80s.  The Gurus are still going strong releasing three new singles this year – Answered Prayers, Hung Out To Dry and Get Out Of Dodge – and have a new album, and 40th anniversary celebrations, scheduled for 2021.

After a sell-out tour in 2019, Jon Stevens returns to thrill audiences far and wide with the Noiseworks & INXS Collection, which pays homage to the bands that helped cement him as Aussie rock royalty. With a career that spans more than four decades, Jon has a swag of solo hits to his name, as well as songs which have become all-time favourites from his time with bands Noiseworks, INXS and the Dead Daisies. His performance will feature hit after hit and have punters on their feet from start to finish.

Diesel brings a special show to the stage in 2021, with Re-injected 30thAnniversary. It is hard to believe that it has been little over three decades since the release of his debut album Johnny Diesel and the Injectors. Since then Diesel has released a swag of albums and forged an impressive solo career, but has always had a soft spot for the classic singles spawned from that original release. His 2021 show will revisit the essence of that record, including singles Don’t Need Love, Cry In Shame and Soul Revival, to name a few, as well as other beloved hits from throughout his career.

Vika & Linda have long been revered for their soulful vocals, and their most recent album Sunday (The Gospel According to Iso), which smashed onto the ARIA charts in 2020 at #2, highlights they truly are an Australian treasure. Their previous release – Akilotoa – Anthology 1996-2004 – hit #1 on the ARIA Charts in 2020 also. As inductees in the Music Victoria Hall of Fame in 2019, they have been nominated for four ARIA awards, and have collaborated vocally on numerous #1 albums. They recorded three classic albums with The Black Sorrows, and have six studio albums, two live albums and a chart-topping Anthology to their name.

Chris Cheney is revered as one of the country’s most phenomenal guitarists, and as lead-singer of rockabilly band The Living End, has been touring the world for more than three decades. Responsible for penning the smash hit singles Second Solution / Prisoner of Society, All Torn Down and Roll on to name a few, he has released eight studio albums with The Living End and have a massive fan base not only in Australia, but also the United States and United Kingdom.

Tickets are only available through Ticketmaster. Punters are advised not to purchase tickets from Viagogo or other Third Party Sellers, as fraudulent tickets will not be honoured.

Adam Thompson’s Bohemian Rhapsody @ The Palms at Crown

Adam Thompson’s Bohemian Rhapsody was due to kick off with shows around the country this month, however due to the impact of COVID-19, some of the shows have been rescheduled into 2022. The others that are unable to go ahead due to ongoing uncertainty have been cancelled.

With the two rescheduled shows – The Palms at Crown show in Melbourne and the Theatre Royal show in Tasmania – planned for February 2022, Adam is looking forward to sharing the night with audiences. “We’ve had to make the hard decision to cancel most of the tour due the uncertainty and complexity surrounding COVID,” he says. “We hope you understand and that you will jump on board to the rescheduled shows. We’ve picked the shows that we hope will be able to go ahead next year.”

Bohemian Rhapsody sees Adam Thompson showcasing the music of his hero Freddie Mercury – owning the stage, channelling the music, and taking audiences on a journey they will never forget. The Bohemian Rhapsody concert will feature hit after hit from Queen’s back catalogue. With tracks such as Somebody to Love, Killer Queen, Fat Bottomed Girls, We Will Rock You, Another One Bites The Dust, I Want To Break Free and Under Pressure to name a few, it will be a spectacular evening from start to finish.

Tickets for the scheduled 2022 shows are on sale now.

Since then Diesel has released a swag of albums and forged an impressive solo career, but has always had a soft spot for the classic singles spawned from that original release. His 2021 show will revisit the essence of that record, including singles Don’t Need Love, Cry In Shame and Soul Revival, to name a few, as well as other beloved hits from throughout his career.

Vika & Linda have long been revered for their soulful vocals, and their most recent album Sunday (The Gospel According to Iso), which smashed onto the ARIA charts in 2020 at #2, highlights they truly are an Australian treasure. Their previous release – Akilotoa – Anthology 1996-2004 – hit #1 on the ARIA Charts in 2020 also. As inductees in the Music Victoria Hall of Fame in 2019, they have been nominated for four ARIA awards, and have collaborated vocally on numerous #1 albums. They recorded three classic albums with The Black Sorrows, and have six studio albums, two live albums and a chart-topping Anthology to their name.

Chris Cheney is revered as one of the country’s most phenomenal guitarists, and as lead-singer of rockabilly band The Living End, has been touring the world for more than three decades. Responsible for penning the smash hit singles Second Solution / Prisoner of Society, All Torn Down and Roll on to name a few, he has released eight studio albums with The Living End and have a massive fan base not only in Australia, but also the United States and United Kingdom.

Goulburn Valley Country Festival reschedules inaugural event into 2022 due to COVID-19 restrictions

*New Date* Sunday 10th April 2022 | Shepparton Vic

Goulburn Valley local country showcase applications now open

Due to the impact of COVID-19, ongoing restrictions and border closures, the inaugural Goulburn Valley Country Festival, scheduled for this October, has been postponed to April 2022. The Shepparton-based event will still feature the same coveted line-up, headlined by Lee Kernaghan, with special guests Brad Cox, Casey Barnes, Felicity Urquhart, Andrew Swift, The Davidson Brothers and some of the most exciting up-and-coming acts on the live scene today. There will also be whip-cracking demonstrations and line-dancing, as well as food trucks, a smokehouse barbecue, rides, market stalls and on-site bars.

Brothers Aidan and Rhett McLaren, who are the driving force behind the Goulburn Valley Country Festival, and its sister event the Gippsland Country Music Festival, are delighted that all the artists from the original show announcement have been able to move to the new date. Tickets purchased for the October event are valid for the new date on Sunday 10th April 2022. “We’re so thankful to all of the amazing artists and their teams for being so flexible regarding the date move, and overall, just being so keen to do whatever they could to get to Shepparton to make the show happen,” says Aidan. “Ideally, we would have loved to be able to stick to the original date, but for obvious reasons, that wasn’t going to be possible. We had the option of postponing the festival to next October, but we’ve been so overwhelmed by the positive response from the Goulburn Valley community with so many people buying tickets and looking forward to the event, that we really wanted to make it happen as soon as possible.”

One of the driving forces behind moving the event into the start of 2022 was to ensure music fans could get back to seeing their favourite artists live as soon as safely possible. “One thing we definitely know is that people are really missing seeing live music and can’t wait for live concerts to come back,” says Aidan. “For many music lovers, including myself, this has been the longest time we’ve gone in our lives without seeing a show. For many artists, it’s been the longest they’ve ever gone in their careers without playing a show. When the live scene comes back, the positivity, excitement and energy at those first few shows is going to be something really incredible. I can’t wait to see that energy in Shepparton come April.”

Something extra special for the Goulburn Valley Country Festival is the inclusion of the Goulburn Valley Local Country Showcase, which is now receiving applications. Dubbed the ‘search to find the local country stars of tomorrow’, four winners will have the opportunity perform as part of the showcase on the day. “We love being able to give really talented local artists the chance to perform on the same stage as some of the biggest acts in the country,” says Aidan. “It’s also a great opportunity for them to meet the other artists and build connections that will hopefully lead to more opportunities for them.” Musicians must be from the Goulburn Valley region. Applications are open now via the Goulburn Valley Country Festival website.

Tickets are still on sale for the rescheduled date of the Goulburn Valley Country Festival in April 2022. If ticketholders are unable to make the rescheduled date, they can contact their ticketing provider for a refund.
