Two rock super forces head out on a massive They Who Rock national tour this November & December

Including special limited edition release 7” singles One Word & Marseilles

When it comes to two of the greatest rock bands in Australian music history, it doesn’t get much better than The Angels and the Baby Animals. Now, for the first time, these two legendary bands are joining forces and heading out on the road together for a massive They Who Rock national tour, making this the rock event not-to-miss in November and December 2019. To top it off, the bands have recorded their own versions of each other’s songs for a limited single release to celebrate the tour – with The Angels laying down the smash hit One Word, and the Baby Animals tracking the cult classic Marseilles.

No strangers to gracing each other’s stages, The Angels and the Baby Animals have been performing in each other’s periphery for decades. Most recently, they were on the same bill on a sell-out run of Red Hot Summer Tour dates that saw them rock the socks off of audiences around the country, so much so they were asked back by popular demand. It was evident that the time had come to head out on the road as a united force for a huge joint tour jam-packed with hits such as Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again, One Word, Take A Long Line, Rush You, No Secrets and Early Warning to name a few.

The Angels need little introduction to rock music fans – they are what has made rock music great in Australia. Having recently celebrated four decades since the release of their seminal sophomore album Face to Face with a sold-out tour, their songs are part of the psyche of generations. Songs such as Dogs Are Talking, Marseilles, After The Rain and Be With You to name a few, their music speaks to young and old. With the dynamic musical partnership of highly respected guitarists Rick and John Brewster, bassist Sam Brewster, drummer Nick Norton and the incomparable vocal stylings of Dave Gleeson, The Angels are a powerhouse, rocking as hard as they ever have.

Baby Animals celebrated their first #1 album as their debut self-titled release reached the top spot on the ARIA Album Chart in 1992. Fast forward 27 years and Suze DeMarchi’s reputation as a fierce and inspiring front woman remains undiminished, her rapport with songwriting partner and guitarist Dave Leslie is as dynamic as ever. Baby Animals first emerged onto the Australian music scene in 1991 and delivered four massive hits off their debut album. They also picked up three ARIA awards in 1992 and their self-titled album was named in the 100 Best Australian Albums. Their second album Shaved and Dangerous reached #2 and their 2013 release This Is Not The End reached Top 20. The band features DeMarchi, Leslie and a revered rhythm section in drummer Mick Skelton and bassist Dario Bortolin.

For Rick Brewster, the tour and subsequent 7” single releases are an exciting prospect. “The Baby Animals are a fantastic band, always have been and I can’t wait to tour with them,” he says. “Dave Leslie is one of my all-time favourite guitarists and great to watch on stage. It was a lot of fun recording their song One Word, and I love their version of our song Marseilles.”

John Brewster is in agreement. “Personally, I regard Suze DeMarchi as one of the greatest front singers this country has ever known, I love the blues in her voice,” he says. “We have developed a great friendship with the band over the years and our whole band reckons they are great – it is going to be wonderful going out on the road with them. We might even have a surprise or two in store.”

Tickets to The Angels & Baby Animals They Who Rock tour are on sale now. The Angels’ version of One Word and the Baby Animals version of Marseilles are available now digitally through Bloodlines. A limited edition 7” vinyl single will be available for collectors to purchase at the shows.

The Wolfe Brothers continue their country music dream with more dates on the Country Heart National Tour

The Wolfe Brothers are having a stellar 2019, easily one of their biggest years to date. Currently on tour in Canada as special guests of Canadian superstar Gord Bamford, and taking part in the iconic Calgary Stampede, they are living their country music dream. The year kicked off with the boys’ headline show at Tamworth Country Music Festival packed to the rafters, and a sweeping win at the Golden Guitars, taking home four accolades at the awards ceremony. Their fourth long-player Country Heart garnered them awards for not only Group Of The Year, Song Of The Year for the single Ain’t Seen It Yet, and Contemporary Album Of The Year for Country Heart, but also the coveted Album Of The Year title.

For the most part, 2019 has seen The Wolfe Brothers solidly out on the road. They started the first part of the year on their Country Heart National Tour, and then joined long-time mate Lee Kernaghan on his Backroad Nation tour when it kicked off in June. The rest of 2019 will see the guys traverse the breadth of Australia – continuing to tour with Lee until the end of the year and fitting in shows on their hotly demanded Country Heart tour in August, September and December.

The Wolfe Brothers are no overnight success story – their story is one that shows that hard work and determination can make even the biggest dreams a reality. For years they were weekend warriors playing the pubs and party scene around Tasmania with no real prospect of being noticed on the mainland. Then they went on Australia’s Got Talent and won the hearts of the nation, securing second place in the series final. They were the first band to ever make the finals and the first act to ever get there playing original material. The mainland was sitting up and taking notice and The Wolfe Brothers were soon auditioning to tour with Lee Kernaghan. Lee hired them after playing the second song at that audition and The Wolfe Brothers have since played every show Lee has done over the last six years – and they continue to do so – opening his shows and playing as part of his band. Fast forward and The Wolfe Brothers are selling out their own headline shows around the country.

All four of The Wolfe Brothers albums have entered the ARIA chart in the Top 20 all genre ARIA chart. The last two albums, Nothin’ But Trouble and This Crazy Life, and this new release Country Heart, have all debuted on the ARIA Country Chart at #2. The band penned the album on a songwriting trip to Nashville last year where they collaborated with a number of different writers, with the objective to create a different sound and deliver songs that would hopefully take the band to the next level.

They felt ready to take a big step with Country Heart. “We really wanted to do something different, something that would reach a wider audience and something to show that we have grown and matured as a band and as songwriters,” says bassist Tom Wolfe. “We are very proud of this album and we feel that we achieved what we set out to do and to see it debut at #9 on the ARIA all genre chart was very satisfying and a great start to the next chapter for the band.”

The Wolfe Brothers enlisted award-winning producer Matt Fell to produce their fourth studio album in his Sydney studio. “Matt was amazing to work with,” says guitarist Brodie Rainbird. “He is also a great musician and he really understood our need to do something different with this album. In the past we have always been a guitar driven band. This time we never picked up a guitar until we were two weeks into the recording. We took the time to work on the parts of every song. It is not a massive departure from the past Wolfe Brothers records, it is just different, and the response to the album has been incredibly encouraging for us.”

The Wolfe Brothers are touring now – tickets are currently on sale for their Country Heart National Tour.

Hay Mate – A Bush Christmas Appeal For Our Aussie Farmers @ Mornington Racecourse, MORNINGTON VIC
Dec 15 @ 12:30 pm – 7:15 pm
Hay Mate – A Bush Christmas Appeal For Our Aussie Farmers @ Mornington Racecourse, MORNINGTON VIC

Featuring John Farnham with Jon Stevens, Daryl Braithwaite, Vanessa Amorosi, John Williamson, The Black Sorrows with Vika & Linda, All Our Exes Live in Texas, Tim Wheatley and Little Georgia

Banding together this festive season, John Farnham will lead a cast of Aussie entertainers to raise important funds for Rural Aid with the Hay Mate – A Bush Christmas Appeal for Our Aussie Farmers. Joining John for this all-star line-up is a list of Aussie music royalty including Jon Stevens, Daryl Braithwaite, Vanessa Amorosi, John Williamson, The Black Sorrows with Vika & Linda, All Our Exes Live in Texas, Tim Wheatley and Little Georgia. What a Christmas get together!

For John Farnham, being part of the Hay Mate concert in Mornington on December 15 – an event that has been made possible by the generosity of partners Woolworths and the Nine Network – was an important thing to do. “Farmers are the backbone of this country,” he says. “I understand what they are going through. They are doing it tough through this drought. Not only do we want to help out, we want to show them that they have our support.”

All profits raised from the massive Sunday event will go to Rural Aid’s Buy A Bale campaign. Rural Aid is one of the leading rural charities in Australia and have been championing the cause to farmers doing it tough. The Buy A Bale program supports farmers and rural communities throughout Australia, delivering hay and other essential items for those who have no feed left for their livestock. One of the key supporters of the Hay Mate event, Woolworths, has a long and strong history of supporting Australians in need, particularly in times of drought and disaster. Their continued support with Hay Mate will keep championing the cause for funds for drought-affected families.

Rural Aid chief executive officer Charles Adler said everyone behind the Hay Mate concerts were to be commended for coming together to put on the event. “They have recognised a need and are committed to supporting our farmers and families,” he says. “I cannot say enough in terms of their generosity to this cause. The Hay Mate Buy A Bale program has so far distributed over $3-million worth of fodder to farmers around Australia. But, with the worsening drought and the need for a lot more, the commitment has been made to distribute more through the funds that will be raised at the Hay Mate concert.”

The Nine Network will be broadcasting the Hay Mate concert from 8pm on December 15 on Channel 9, continuing its ongoing support of Australian farmers. Head of content, production and development Adrian Swift says the network is committed to helping farmers who are suffering through the worst drought in 100 years. “The job isn’t over yet,” he says. “Working with Rural Aid and Aussie music legends like John Farnham represents another massive opportunity to show support and raise more funds,” he says. “Hay Mate will be a major television event featuring some of Australia’s biggest musical acts.”

Organiser Glenn Wheatley, who is one of the driving forces behind the Hay Mate – A Bush Christmas Appeal For Our Aussie Farmers says the success of the event is about everyone coming together for a united cause. “There are times when we need to stand together to support those in need, and our farmers are doing it tough,” he says. “I can’t thank the performers enough for agreeing to participate. Their support to this cause is enormous. It is a credit to them, and I do hope Australians get behind this bush Christmas appeal to support our farmers. December is the perfect time to get together – celebrate Christmas early and help out our fellow mates – come and join us for this very special event in Mornington on December 15.”

Tickets for Hay Mate – A Bush Christmas Appeal For Our Aussie Farmers go on sale at 9am AEST on Friday 1st November 2019. To donate to the appeal, visit the Hay Mate website.

Celtic rockers Claymore expand their annual festive party adding a special show on the Bellarine Peninsula

Eric Bogle And Claymore – A Grumpy Celtic Christmas

Due to popular demand, Celtic rockers Claymore are taking their annual festive party further afield in 2019, adding in a show on the Bellarine Peninula on December 18. In 2019, the band is giving their celebration a ‘bah humbug’ twist, joining forces with Eric Bogle for A Grumpy Celtic Christmas. Don’t be put off by the name, the evening promises to be full-on Celtic Christmas fun – jam-packed with music and dance to celebrate the silly season. Claymore having been bringing together their mates for this annual shindig for a couple of years and it is always a riotious affair. The saying goes that the Celts know how to celebrate, well anything, and it doesn’t get a much bigger family event than Christmas. What started as a planned small get-together in Melbourne has morphed into a highlight on the Celtic music calendar and a Christmas party for one and all.

This year, the Glenbrae Celtic Dancers will help get the dancing started! Eric Bogle leads the ‘bah humbug’ charge with a plethora of Celtic hits. An internationally respected musician, he has been touring the world for the past four decades, from outback Australia to the streets of New York City. In 1986, he was recognised with a United Nations Peace Medal for his contribution, via music, to the cause peace, and in 1987, he was awarded an OAM for his services to the entertainment industry. There is little that Eric Bogle hasn’t achieved throughout his extensive career. He has undertaken eight tours of North America, 11 tours of Europe, four tours of New Zealand and countless Australian tours to boot. During this time, he has played at iconic festivals such as Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland, Festival Interceltique De Lorient in France, as well as Port Fairy and Woodford back home, to name a few.

Claymore need little introduction to audiences. Heralded as one of the world’s premier Celtic rock bands, an evening in their company is always an unforgettably loud experience. Claymore’s live shows demand that you are on your feet from the outset. This enigmatic band of multi-instrumentalists not only manages to combine traditional elements of Celtic music, but they take that passion and soul and rock it right into the 21st century. Few bands can pull off the sensitive task of re-educating the traditional realm into the modern day, but that’s something of a specialty for Claymore. Not only that, but they manage to write beautiful original Celtic compositions, and even lend their style to some power rock classics.

There is little that Claymore haven’t done throughout their career. They have a host of impressive album releases under their belt and a long list of festival performances to their name. Since the band’s inception more than two decades ago, they’ve released five impressive albums, and performed internationally from gigs in New York, Scotland and New Zealand, to several headline appearances at the reputed Festival Interceltique De Lorient France. Combine this with performances at the biggest festivals on the Australian circuit and you’ve got an impressive musical resume.

Claymore lead singer William Hutton says the band is looking forward to getting their ‘bah humbug’ on in Geelong this year. “We’re ‘grumpy’ this year because Eric Bogle is a notorious humbug at Christmas,” says William. “However, it will be anything but grumpy – we are going to have a lot of fun. We will also do a few Christmas songs as well.”

Tickets for A Grumpy Celtic Christmas in Geelong are on sale now.

Jon Stevens packs the best of the best into one special tour

The Noiseworks & INXS Collection National Tour

Jon Stevens is hitting the road with a show jam-packed full of hits, hits and more hits. The Noiseworks & INXS Collection tour will showcase the best of Noiseworks’ smash hits and Jon’s favourite INXS songs, tracks which earned him a whole new fan base from his time fronting the band. Every song on the setlist is a smash radio hit and guaranteed to have audiences on their feet from the outset.

For the acclaimed singer-songwriter, the inspiration for the tour came from his fans themselves. Having just come off of the sold-out run of the Red Hot Summer Tour, Jon and his band played only the hits from his time in Noiseworks and INXS… and audiences went wild. “You’ve got 10,000 people just going bananas when you are playing those songs,” he says. “It makes you realise you have to keep playing them. People want to hear Noiseworks and INXS. My job is to make sure everyone has the maximum best time possible.”

Jon Stevens hasn’t really stopped working – touring, writing or recording – since he first started out in the industry as a young musician. Fast forward to the early 1980s and with five mates Noiseworks smashed onto the Australian airwaves with singles such as No Lies, Love Somebody, Take Me Back, Touch and In My Youth to name a few.  They were the embodiment of what Aussie rock was and should be – hard-hitting, talented and they put on a bloody good show. Never one to rest on his laurels, Jon Stevens didn’t stop working when Noiseworks when on hiatus. He followed up with solo albums, multiple stints in stage productions such as Jesus Christ Superstar and earned world-wide acclaim taking centre stage with INXS. His next band – The Dead Daisies – stepped up that international reputation with the debut single Lock and Load written with and featuring the legendary Slash on guitar.

Over the years Jon always pulls out the Noiseworks classics on tour – the songs that get fans on their feet and rockin’. This tour is an exciting opportunity to also hear the great hits from INXS. “We have all grown up listening to those songs,” he says. “They are great songs and they should still be heard live. Andrew Farris came to one of our recent shows and told me I need to play more INXS songs. So, with his blessing, and the continual requests from fans, it is Noiseworks and INXS all the way. That is all you are going to hear, songs from your youth, and songs you grew up with – iconic songs from both bands.”

Whether touring with INXS, doing the festival circuit with Noiseworks, playing his own headline solo shows to packed houses, one thing has always been consistent with Jon, it is, and always will be, about the music. His hard work over the years has truly paid off, as Jon Stevens is considered one of the country’s premier artists and a legend on the live music scene.

Tickets to The Noiseworks & INXS Collection are on sale now.

Celtic rockers Claymore give their annual festive party a bah humbug twist with A Grumpy Celtic Christmas

Claymore & Eric Bogle with the Glenbrae Celtic Dancers

This year, the Glenbrae Celtic Dancers will help get the dancing started! Eric Bogle leads the ‘bah humbug’ charge with a plethora of Celtic hits. An internationally respected musician, he has been touring the world for the past four decades, from outback Australia to the streets of New York City. In 1986, he was recognised with a United Nations Peace Medal for his contribution, via music, to the cause peace, and in 1987, he was awarded an OAM for his services to the entertainment industry. There is little that Eric Bogle hasn’t achieved throughout his extensive career. He has undertaken eight tours of North America, 11 tours of Europe, four tours of New Zealand and countless Australian tours to boot. During this time, he has played at iconic festivals such as Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland, Festival Interceltique De Lorient in France, as well as Port Fairy and Woodford back home, to name a few.

Claymore need little introduction to audiences. Heralded as one of the world’s premier Celtic rock bands, an evening in their company is always an unforgettably loud experience. Claymore’s live shows demand that you are on your feet from the outset. This enigmatic band of multi-instrumentalists not only manages to combine traditional elements of Celtic music, but they take that passion and soul and rock it right into the 21st century. Few bands can pull off the sensitive task of re-educating the traditional realm into the modern day, but that’s something of a specialty for Claymore. Not only that, but they manage to write beautiful original Celtic compositions, and even lend their style to some power rock classics.

There is little that Claymore haven’t done throughout their career. They have a host of impressive album releases under their belt and a long list of festival performances to their name. Since the band’s inception more than two decades ago, they’ve released five impressive albums, and performed internationally from gigs in New York, Scotland and New Zealand, to several headline appearances at the reputed Festival Interceltique De Lorient France. Combine this with performances at the biggest festivals on the Australian circuit and you’ve got an impressive musical resume.

For Claymore lead singer William Hutton says the band didn’t expect A Celtic Christmas to be such a popular event, and it has in fact become something of an unofficial Christmas party for Claymore. “We weren’t expecting it to be like this, but every year we have been contacted by people asking when A Celtic Christmas is,” he says. “It has become a bit of a monster we can’t control. Now all our Claymore family and friends make sure the date is part of their festive calendar! We’re ‘grumpy’ this year because Eric Bogle is a notorious humbug at Christmas! However, it will be anything but grumpy – we are going to have a lot of fun. We will also do a few Christmas songs as well.”

Tickets for A Grumpy Celtic Christmas are on sale now.

Jon Stevens packs the best of the best into one special tour

The Noiseworks & INXS Collection National Tour

Jon Stevens is hitting the road with a show jam-packed full of hits, hits and more hits. The Noiseworks & INXS Collection tour will showcase the best of Noiseworks’ smash hits and Jon’s favourite INXS songs, tracks which earned him a whole new fan base from his time fronting the band. Every song on the setlist is a smash radio hit and guaranteed to have audiences on their feet from the outset.

For the acclaimed singer-songwriter, the inspiration for the tour came from his fans themselves. Having just come off of the sold-out run of the Red Hot Summer Tour, Jon and his band played only the hits from his time in Noiseworks and INXS… and audiences went wild. “You’ve got 10,000 people just going bananas when you are playing those songs,” he says. “It makes you realise you have to keep playing them. People want to hear Noiseworks and INXS. My job is to make sure everyone has the maximum best time possible.”

Jon Stevens hasn’t really stopped working – touring, writing or recording – since he first started out in the industry as a young musician. Fast forward to the early 1980s and with five mates Noiseworks smashed onto the Australian airwaves with singles such as No Lies, Love Somebody, Take Me Back, Touch and In My Youth to name a few.  They were the embodiment of what Aussie rock was and should be – hard-hitting, talented and they put on a bloody good show. Never one to rest on his laurels, Jon Stevens didn’t stop working when Noiseworks when on hiatus. He followed up with solo albums, multiple stints in stage productions such as Jesus Christ Superstar and earned world-wide acclaim taking centre stage with INXS. His next band – The Dead Daisies – stepped up that international reputation with the debut single Lock and Load written with and featuring the legendary Slash on guitar.

Over the years Jon always pulls out the Noiseworks classics on tour – the songs that get fans on their feet and rockin’. This tour is an exciting opportunity to also hear the great hits from INXS. “We have all grown up listening to those songs,” he says. “They are great songs and they should still be heard live. Andrew Farris came to one of our recent shows and told me I need to play more INXS songs. So, with his blessing, and the continual requests from fans, it is Noiseworks and INXS all the way. That is all you are going to hear, songs from your youth, and songs you grew up with – iconic songs from both bands.”

Whether touring with INXS, doing the festival circuit with Noiseworks, playing his own headline solo shows to packed houses, one thing has always been consistent with Jon, it is, and always will be, about the music. His hard work over the years has truly paid off, as Jon Stevens is considered one of the country’s premier artists and a legend on the live music scene.

Tickets to The Noiseworks & INXS Collection are on sale now.

The Angels @ QPAC, Concert Hall, BRISBANE QLD
Dec 28 @ 8:00 pm – 11:30 pm
The Angels @ QPAC, Concert Hall, BRISBANE QLD

The Angels bring their highly acclaimed show Symphony Of Angels to Brisbane, conducted by Rob John

Symphony Of Angels sees The Angels, along with a full orchestra, traverse 20 of the band’s biggest hits, from Take A Long Line, Marseilles, After The Rain, Be With You, No Secrets and Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again to name a few. The orchestral arrangements were scored by Rob, who has worked as a concert master for the likes Elton John and Natalie Cole, and award-winning composer Jamie Messenger.

Taking The Angels’ music into an orchestral setting was something that was always bound to happen. Rick and John Brewster grew up surrounded by classical music – their late grandfather, Hooper, was a pianist and composer, and founder of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. Their father, Arthur, was also a pianist, as well as a cellist and conductor, so it was inevitable their family linage would wield its influence from afar.

“Classical music was embedded in John and me from an early age,” says Rick. “I studied classical piano throughout my school years and it was all I knew until I started learning guitar. Our songwriting reflected our background, mixing rock with classical melodies. We always knew the sound of an orchestra could bring another rich dimension and after all these years this came to fruition with the Symphony Of Angels.”

For John, the dream started back in the early days of the band. “I remember when the band recorded Rick’s song Mr Damage way back in 1979, Rick and I were playing violin and brass parts on playback, and saying ‘wouldn’t this be great with an orchestra’,” he recalls. “Sadly, we never knew our grandfather Hooper, who died just four months before I was born, but we were aware of his musical legacy. Our dad would bring visiting musicians over and sometimes they would play in our house, beautiful sounds bouncing off the walls. We never thought one day we would marry our music with classical players, we could only dream.”

When the scores for the first Symphony Of Angels started coming through, it was like serendipity. John says they noticed that their family’s influence was appearing in The Angels’ chord progressions, solo melodies and riffs. “Make the melodies sing, Dad would say to us,” he remembers.

The Symphony Of Angels is all about the music, and the melodies do sing. The first Symphony Of Angels show the band did with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra received rave reviews and is a career highlight for everyone in the band. The opportunity to take the Symphony Of Angels further afield was one they didn’t want to miss. “After the first show, there was a euphoric feeling of accomplishment,” says Rick. “Even the orchestra and the choir got caught up in the excitement of stepping outside the square. From the audience, there was an overwhelming elation as they witnessed two musical worlds collide.”

Symphony Of Angels isn’t just a show for rock music fans either – it appeals to both rock and classical genres, truly crossing the musical divide. “The band were still talking about the concert months later, it excited us that much,” says John. “We are constantly coming into contact with fans who rate the show among the best they’ve seen. Even people who were there as orchestra followers loved the show, as did the orchestra players and choir themselves.”

Tickets to the Symphony Of Angels show in Brisbane on December 28 are on sale now.

Red Hot Summer Tour @ Bendigo Racecourse

Red Hot Summer Tour @ Bendigo Racecourse

The Red Hot Summer Tour celebrates 10 years of Red Hot Rock in 2020

Hunters & Collectors, James Reyne, The Living End, The Angels, Baby Animals, Killing Heidi, Boom Crash Opera

The RED HOT SUMMER TOUR celebrates 10 years of Red Hot Rock in 2020 and in true style, organisers have put together an incredible all Australian line-up for a massive four-month series of dates. In an incredible coup for music-fans, ARIA Hall of Fame inductees Hunters & Collectors are reuniting to headline the 2020 tour, bringing with them special guests James Reyne, The Living End, The Angels, Baby Animals, Killing Heidi and Boom Crash Opera.

Promoter Duane McDonald launched the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR in 2011 with a line-up of three artists on the bill and six shows throughout Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia. Fast forward a decade, and the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR is one of the hottest tickets on the summer music calendar. In 2020, the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR will visit Queensland, both the metro centre and the Tropical North, the Northern Territory, Western Australia, New South Wales, South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania, fully realising Duane’s original dream of ensuring the music loving public around the country had access to top quality festivals.

“The past 10 years have gone so fast and we have been so proud to see the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR continue to grow each year,” says Duane. “The support we have received from audiences has been phenomenal. To everyone who has attended a RED HOT SUMMER TOUR show over the last decade – thank you. You are the reason we do what we do, and will continue to bring you the best quality music experience, every year. We can’t wait to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Red Hot Rock with music fans around the country.”

Reforming for this special 10th anniversary of the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR, Hunters & Collectors performances are a rare thing indeed and a huge coup for music fans. The legendary band disbanded over two decades ago and have only performed again a handful of times since – notably at The Sound Relief Concert in 2009 and a brief run five years ago. Banding together again specifically for the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR is apt, considering that Hunters & Collectors voracious live performances are so well suited in a festival environment. With smash hit songs such as When The River Runs Dry, Say Goodbye, Do You See What I See, True Tears Of Joy, Holy Grail and the anthemic Throw Your Arms Around Me, Hunters & Collectors have sold over one million albums spawning 19 hit singles.

“The lads are very excited to be getting out into all the regional towns that made them welcome when they were touring at their peak throughout Australia,” says Hunter & Collectors lead singer Mark Seymour. “This tour is going to be huge.”

James Reyne has been treading the boards in the rock halls of Australian music for decades. From his time fronting the legendary Australian Crawl through to his successful solo career, James’ music is part of Australian history. As a prolific songwriter and strong vocalist, it’s no surprise that James has won accolade after accolade for his contribution to music. When Australian Crawl split in the mid-1980s, James embarked on a successful solo career. James Reye stands alone within an elite cluster of exclusive Australian performers.

The Living End are considered Australian rock royalty, and for good reason. Their blistering live performances have seen them perform far and wide, and their reputation precedes them, they rock from the first note to the last. When The Living End first smashed onto the scene in 1997 with their double-A single Prisoner of Society and Second Solution, they embraced a new Australian sound and fans and critics sat up and listened. Since then they have released seven studio albums, two of which have debuted at #1 on the ARIA Chart – four of those are Platinum and two are Gold. They have been nominated for an incredible 27 ARIA Awards. They released their eighth studio album Wunderbar in September 2018, and audiences at the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR will get to see the band in full flight!

When it comes to great Aussie rock, it doesn’t come much better than The Angels. It’s been over four decades since brothers Rick and John Brewster co-founded the iconic band and have penned some of Australia’s most anthemic tracks. The Angels are widely reputed for their killer live shows. With hits like Long Line, Marseille, Be With You, After the Rain, Shadow Boxer and Mr Damage to name a few. Audiences have always loved seeing The Angels on the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR and 2020 promises to really rock!

Baby Animals burst onto the Australian scene in the 1990s with a solid rock force and a sassy lead singer. Suze DeMarchi proved that girls could rock just as hard as guys and the Baby Animals soon kicked some impressive rock butt with hits such as Rush You, Early Warning and One Word. The band scored themselves ARIA awards for best album and toured the globe. When they split in the mid-1990s they ended a special era of Australian music. The band’s recent reformation and inclusion again on the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR line-up is an opportunity for music fans to see their original rock at its best.

Killing Heidi also celebrate an auspicious anniversary in 2020, two decades since the release of their rock-pop debut Reflector. The smash hit singles – including Weir and Mascara – embedded the album in Australian music history, took out four ARIA awards and reached four times platinum status. It also catapulted Killing Heidi and its teen musicians – Ella and Jesse Hooper – into international superstar status. The Hooper siblings were revered for their songwriting prowess and their subsequent albums earned them critical acclaim.

Marking another milestone on the tour, Boom Crash Opera celebrate the 30th anniversary of their ARIA Top 10 album These Are Crazy Times, which spawned smash singles such as Onion Skin, The Best Thing, Talk About It, Get Out Of The House and Dancing In The Storm. To make the occasion even more special, the band – Peter Farnan, Peter ‘Maz’ Maslen and John Favro – are excited to welcome back Dale Ryder who will lead the vocal charge. Audiences will be treated to all the hits, including Hands Up In The Air, Her Charity, Love Me To Death and Great Wall to name a few. Boom Crash Opera have a lot to celebrate and what better place to do it than on the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR in 2020.

The RED HOT SUMMER TOUR is always a sell-out series and the 10 Years of Red Hot Rock in 2020 will create Australian music history. Don’t miss these very special shows.

Tickets are only available through authorised ticket outlets listed. Patrons are advised not to purchase tickets from Viagogo or other Third Party Sellers, as fraudulent tickets will not be honoured.

WOLFEFEST @ Forth Pub [Outdoors], FORTH TAS
Jan 4 @ 4:00 pm – 10:30 pm
WOLFEFEST @ Forth Pub [Outdoors], FORTH TAS

The Wolfe Brothers proudly announce their inaugural WOLFEFEST summer festival dates for January 2020

The inaugural WOLFEFEST kicks off this January and it promises to be an unforgettable experience for audiences. Led by country rock favourites The Wolfe Brothers, the event will see the band kick off a festival-style party every January in different venues, commencing with two events in Northern Tasmania in 2020.

“We have decided to produce our own festival shows to kick off the new year and our intention is to do one or two WOLFEFEST events every year from now on,” says lead singer Nick Wolfe. “The idea is to present WOLFEFEST at different locations each January, it will be a moving festival. We hope to build it to become a major event in years to come and we are very proud to announce the first two WOLFEFEST events will be in our home state of Tasmania in January 2020.”

The Wolfe Brothers have come a long way since their Australia’s Got Talent success in 2012. They are now one of Australian country music’s most successful recording artists delivering four hit albums and an incredible 12 #1 hit singles. They have proven themselves to be arguably the most exciting live act in the country rock genre in Australia and after years of hard work were given the nod of approval by the industry at large when they were awarded four Golden Guitars at the Australian Country Music Awards in January 2019 – a feat never before achieved by a band in the history of the awards. The pinnacle of that amazing night was taking home the coveted Album Of The Year award for their lauded Country Heart album.

For bassist Tom Wolfe, the upcoming WOLFEFEST is the perfect way for the band to start what will be a massive 2020 for the band. “We are so pumped about the inaugural WOLFEFEST events,” he says. “There will be no better way to kick off every new year than presenting our own festival every January for many years to come. We hope to build it and make it bigger every year and create an event that people look forward to every January. We will be inviting artists that we really enjoy working with to join us at WOLFEFEST and hopefully in the future we will build the event to the point where we can invite some of our musical heroes to join us at WOLFEFEST.”

WOLFEFEST 2020 will feature an enviable line-up, including one of Tassie’s favourite party bands The Bad Dad Orchestra, Victorian Jake Sinclair and his band, plus Queensland’s rising start of country Natalie Pearson. The soul rock juggernaut that is The Bad Dad Orchestra will bring audiences to their feet at the inaugural WOLFEFEST. The nine-piece band – of illustrious Dad musicians – features not only your traditional full band of electric guitars, bass and drum, but also throws in a Hammond organ, a three-piece horn section and some awesome vocals. They are purveyors of classic pub rock with a twist or two.

Jake Sinclair harks from a regional town in Victoria and has strong country music roots. He discovered his love of playing music at the age of six and it hasn’t waned in the ensuing years. A graduate from the Tamworth Country Music College in 2005, he has worked alongside the likes of Travis Collins, Jayne Denham and Luke Austin as a musician and backing vocalist. His debut EP was released in 2017 and he was a finalist in the Toyota Starmaker competition in 2018. Jake has never stopped performing and is rapidly gaining a solid country music fan base.

Rising country starlet Natalie Pearson won hearts with her performance on stage at Gympie in 2018, and recently took home an Australian Independent Music Award for Best Country. The petite performer is earning a big reputation for her killer vocals and dynamic live performances. She has already shared the stage with not only a swag of Golden Guitar winners, but also household pop-music names such as Jessica Mauboy and Karise Eden. The former Perth-turned-East Coast performer is making her mark and is already being included on some of the country’s biggest festival line-ups.

They have been nominated for an incredible 27 ARIA Awards. They released their eighth studio album Wunderbar in September 2018, and audiences at the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR will get to see the band in full flight!

When it comes to great Aussie rock, it doesn’t come much better than The Angels. It’s been over four decades since brothers Rick and John Brewster co-founded the iconic band and have penned some of Australia’s most anthemic tracks. The Angels are widely reputed for their killer live shows. With hits like Long Line, Marseille, Be With You, After the Rain, Shadow Boxer and Mr Damage to name a few. Audiences have always loved seeing The Angels on the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR and 2020 promises to really rock!

Baby Animals burst onto the Australian scene in the 1990s with a solid rock force and a sassy lead singer. Suze DeMarchi proved that girls could rock just as hard as guys and the Baby Animals soon kicked some impressive rock butt with hits such as Rush You, Early Warning and One Word. The band scored themselves ARIA awards for best album and toured the globe. When they split in the mid-1990s they ended a special era of Australian music. The band’s recent reformation and inclusion again on the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR line-up is an opportunity for music fans to see their original rock at its best.

Killing Heidi also celebrate an auspicious anniversary in 2020, two decades since the release of their rock-pop debut Reflector. The smash hit singles – including Weir and Mascara – embedded the album in Australian music history, took out four ARIA awards and reached four times platinum status. It also catapulted Killing Heidi and its teen musicians – Ella and Jesse Hooper – into international superstar status. The Hooper siblings were revered for their songwriting prowess and their subsequent albums earned them critical acclaim.

Marking another milestone on the tour, Boom Crash Opera celebrate the 30th anniversary of their ARIA Top 10 album These Are Crazy Times, which spawned smash singles such as Onion Skin, The Best Thing, Talk About It, Get Out Of The House and Dancing In The Storm. To make the occasion even more special, the band – Peter Farnan, Peter ‘Maz’ Maslen and John Favro – are excited to welcome back Dale Ryder who will lead the vocal charge. Audiences will be treated to all the hits, including Hands Up In The Air, Her Charity, Love Me To Death and Great Wall to name a few. Boom Crash Opera have a lot to celebrate and what better place to do it than on the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR in 2020.

The RED HOT SUMMER TOUR is always a sell-out series and the 10 Years of Red Hot Rock in 2020 will create Australian music history. Don’t miss these very special shows.

WOLFEFEST @ St Helens RSL [Outdoors], ST HELENS TAS
Jan 5 @ 2:00 pm – 8:30 pm
WOLFEFEST @ St Helens RSL [Outdoors], ST HELENS TAS

The Wolfe Brothers proudly announce their inaugural WOLFEFEST summer festival dates for January 2020

The inaugural WOLFEFEST kicks off this January and it promises to be an unforgettable experience for audiences. Led by country rock favourites The Wolfe Brothers, the event will see the band kick off a festival-style party every January in different venues, commencing with two events in Northern Tasmania in 2020.

“We have decided to produce our own festival shows to kick off the new year and our intention is to do one or two WOLFEFEST events every year from now on,” says lead singer Nick Wolfe. “The idea is to present WOLFEFEST at different locations each January, it will be a moving festival. We hope to build it to become a major event in years to come and we are very proud to announce the first two WOLFEFEST events will be in our home state of Tasmania in January 2020.”

The Wolfe Brothers have come a long way since their Australia’s Got Talent success in 2012. They are now one of Australian country music’s most successful recording artists delivering four hit albums and an incredible 12 #1 hit singles. They have proven themselves to be arguably the most exciting live act in the country rock genre in Australia and after years of hard work were given the nod of approval by the industry at large when they were awarded four Golden Guitars at the Australian Country Music Awards in January 2019 – a feat never before achieved by a band in the history of the awards. The pinnacle of that amazing night was taking home the coveted Album Of The Year award for their lauded Country Heart album.

For bassist Tom Wolfe, the upcoming WOLFEFEST is the perfect way for the band to start what will be a massive 2020 for the band. “We are so pumped about the inaugural WOLFEFEST events,” he says. “There will be no better way to kick off every new year than presenting our own festival every January for many years to come. We hope to build it and make it bigger every year and create an event that people look forward to every January. We will be inviting artists that we really enjoy working with to join us at WOLFEFEST and hopefully in the future we will build the event to the point where we can invite some of our musical heroes to join us at WOLFEFEST.”

WOLFEFEST 2020 will feature an enviable line-up, including one of Tassie’s favourite party bands The Bad Dad Orchestra, Victorian Jake Sinclair and his band, plus Queensland’s rising start of country Natalie Pearson. The soul rock juggernaut that is The Bad Dad Orchestra will bring audiences to their feet at the inaugural WOLFEFEST. The nine-piece band – of illustrious Dad musicians – features not only your traditional full band of electric guitars, bass and drum, but also throws in a Hammond organ, a three-piece horn section and some awesome vocals. They are purveyors of classic pub rock with a twist or two.

Jake Sinclair harks from a regional town in Victoria and has strong country music roots. He discovered his love of playing music at the age of six and it hasn’t waned in the ensuing years. A graduate from the Tamworth Country Music College in 2005, he has worked alongside the likes of Travis Collins, Jayne Denham and Luke Austin as a musician and backing vocalist. His debut EP was released in 2017 and he was a finalist in the Toyota Starmaker competition in 2018. Jake has never stopped performing and is rapidly gaining a solid country music fan base.

Rising country starlet Natalie Pearson won hearts with her performance on stage at Gympie in 2018, and recently took home an Australian Independent Music Award for Best Country. The petite performer is earning a big reputation for her killer vocals and dynamic live performances. She has already shared the stage with not only a swag of Golden Guitar winners, but also household pop-music names such as Jessica Mauboy and Karise Eden. The former Perth-turned-East Coast performer is making her mark and is already being included on some of the country’s biggest festival line-ups.

Sounds By The River @ Mary Ann Reserve

Multi-award winning Sounds By The River brings another incredible line-up in 2020

Hunters & Collectors, James Reyne, The Living End, The Angels, Baby Animals, Killing Heidi & Boom Crash Opera

After celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2019, the multi-award winning SOUNDS BY THE RIVER is bringing another great line-up in 2020. In an incredible coup for music-fans, ARIA Hall of Fame inductees Hunters & Collectors are reuniting to headline the 2020 event, bringing with them special guests James Reyne, The Living End, The Angels, Baby Animals, Killing Heidi and Boom Crash Opera.

Reforming for the 2020 SOUNDS BY THE RIVER, Hunters & Collectors performances are a rare thing indeed and a huge coup for music fans. The legendary band disbanded over two decades ago and have only performed again a handful of times since – notably at The Sound Relief Concert in 2009 and a brief run five years ago. Banding together again specifically for SOUNDS BY THE RIVER is apt, considering that Hunters & Collectors voracious live performances are so well suited in a festival environment. With smash hit songs such as When The River Runs Dry, Say Goodbye, Do You See What I See, True Tears Of Joy, Holy Grail and the anthemic Throw Your Arms Around Me, Hunters & Collectors have sold over one million albums spawning 19 hit singles.

James Reyne has been treading the boards in the rock halls of Australian music for decades. From his time fronting the legendary Australian Crawl through to his successful solo career, James’ music is part of Australian history. As a prolific songwriter and strong vocalist, it’s no surprise that James has won accolade after accolade for his contribution to music. When Australian Crawl split in the mid-1980s, James embarked on a successful solo career. James Reye stands alone within an elite cluster of exclusive Australian performers.

The Living End are considered Australian rock royalty, and for good reason. Their blistering live performances have seen them perform far and wide, and their reputation precedes them, they rock from the first note to the last. When The Living End first smashed onto the scene in 1997 with their double-A single Prisoner of Society and Second Solution, they embraced a new Australian sound and fans and critics sat up and listened. Since then they have released seven studio albums, two of which have debuted at #1 on the ARIA Chart – four of those are Platinum and two are Gold. They have been nominated for an incredible 27 ARIA Awards. They released their eighth studio album Wunderbar in September 2018, and audiences at SOUNDS BY THE RIVER will get to see the band in full flight!

When it comes to great Aussie rock, it doesn’t come much better than The Angels. It’s been over four decades since brothers Rick and John Brewster co-founded the iconic band and have penned some of Australia’s most anthemic tracks. The Angels are widely reputed for their killer live shows. With hits like Long Line, Marseille, Be With You, After the Rain, Shadow Boxer and Mr Damage to name a few. Audiences have always loved seeing The Angels on SOUNDS BY THE RIVER and 2020 promises to really rock!

Baby Animals burst onto the Australian scene in the 1990s with a solid rock force and a sassy lead singer. Suze DeMarchi proved that girls could rock just as hard as guys and the Baby Animals soon kicked some impressive rock butt with hits such as Rush You, Early Warning and One Word.

The band’s recent reformation and inclusion again on SOUNDS BY THE RIVER line-up is an opportunity for music fans to see their original rock at its best.

Killing Heidi celebrate an auspicious anniversary in 2020, two decades since the release of their rock-pop debut Reflector. The smash hit singles – including Weir and Mascara – embedded the album in Australian music history, took out four ARIA awards and reached four times platinum status. It also catapulted Killing Heidi and its teen musicians – Ella and Jesse Hooper – into international superstar status.

The Red Hot Summer Tour celebrates 10 years of Red Hot Rock in 2020

Hunters & Collectors, James Reyne, The Living End, The Angels, Baby Animals, Killing Heidi, Boom Crash Opera

The RED HOT SUMMER TOUR celebrates 10 years of Red Hot Rock in 2020 and in true style, organisers have put together an incredible all Australian line-up for a massive four-month series of dates. In an incredible coup for music-fans, ARIA Hall of Fame inductees Hunters & Collectors are reuniting to headline the 2020 tour, bringing with them special guests James Reyne, The Living End, The Angels, Baby Animals, Killing Heidi and Boom Crash Opera.

Promoter Duane McDonald launched the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR in 2011 with a line-up of three artists on the bill and six shows throughout Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia. Fast forward a decade, and the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR is one of the hottest tickets on the summer music calendar. In 2020, the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR will visit Queensland, both the metro centre and the Tropical North, the Northern Territory, Western Australia, New South Wales, South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania, fully realising Duane’s original dream of ensuring the music loving public around the country had access to top quality festivals.

“The past 10 years have gone so fast and we have been so proud to see the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR continue to grow each year,” says Duane. “The support we have received from audiences has been phenomenal. To everyone who has attended a RED HOT SUMMER TOUR show over the last decade – thank you. You are the reason we do what we do, and will continue to bring you the best quality music experience, every year. We can’t wait to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Red Hot Rock with music fans around the country.”

Reforming for this special 10th anniversary of the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR, Hunters & Collectors performances are a rare thing indeed and a huge coup for music fans.

When The Living End first smashed onto the scene in 1997 with their double-A single Prisoner of Society and Second Solution, they embraced a new Australian sound and fans and critics sat up and listened. Since then they have released seven studio albums, two of which have debuted at #1 on the ARIA Chart – four of those are Platinum and two are Gold. They have been nominated for an incredible 27 ARIA Awards. They released their eighth studio album Wunderbar in September 2018, and audiences at the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR will get to see the band in full flight!

When it comes to great Aussie rock, it doesn’t come much better than The Angels. It’s been over four decades since brothers Rick and John Brewster co-founded the iconic band and have penned some of Australia’s most anthemic tracks. The Angels are widely reputed for their killer live shows. With hits like Long Line, Marseille, Be With You, After the Rain, Shadow Boxer and Mr Damage to name a few. Audiences have always loved seeing The Angels on the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR and 2020 promises to really rock!

Baby Animals burst onto the Australian scene in the 1990s with a solid rock force and a sassy lead singer. Suze DeMarchi proved that girls could rock just as hard as guys and the Baby Animals soon kicked some impressive rock butt with hits such as Rush You, Early Warning and One Word. The band scored themselves ARIA awards for best album and toured the globe. When they split in the mid-1990s they ended a special era of Australian music. The band’s recent reformation and inclusion again on the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR line-up is an opportunity for music fans to see their original rock at its best.

Killing Heidi also celebrate an auspicious anniversary in 2020, two decades since the release of their rock-pop debut Reflector. The smash hit singles – including Weir and Mascara – embedded the album in Australian music history, took out four ARIA awards and reached four times platinum status. It also catapulted Killing Heidi and its teen musicians – Ella and Jesse Hooper – into international superstar status. The Hooper siblings were revered for their songwriting prowess and their subsequent albums earned them critical acclaim.

Marking another milestone on the tour, Boom Crash Opera celebrate the 30th anniversary of their ARIA Top 10 album These Are Crazy Times, which spawned smash singles such as Onion Skin, The Best Thing, Talk About It, Get Out Of The House and Dancing In The Storm. To make the occasion even more special, the band – Peter Farnan, Peter ‘Maz’ Maslen and John Favro – are excited to welcome back Dale Ryder who will lead the vocal charge. Audiences will be treated to all the hits, including Hands Up In The Air, Her Charity, Love Me To Death and Great Wall to name a few. Boom Crash Opera have a lot to celebrate and what better place to do it than on the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR in 2020.

The RED HOT SUMMER TOUR is always a sell-out series and the 10 Years of Red Hot Rock in 2020 will create Australian music history. Don’t miss these very special shows.

The Red Hot Summer Tour celebrates 10 years of Red Hot Rock in 2020

Hunters & Collectors, James Reyne, The Living End, The Angels, Baby Animals, Killing Heidi, Boom Crash Opera

The RED HOT SUMMER TOUR celebrates 10 years of Red Hot Rock in 2020 and in true style, organisers have put together an incredible all Australian line-up for a massive four-month series of dates. In an incredible coup for music-fans, ARIA Hall of Fame inductees Hunters & Collectors are reuniting to headline the 2020 tour, bringing with them special guests James Reyne, The Living End, The Angels, Baby Animals, Killing Heidi and Boom Crash Opera.

Promoter Duane McDonald launched the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR in 2011 with a line-up of three artists on the bill and six shows throughout Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia. Fast forward a decade, and the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR is one of the hottest tickets on the summer music calendar. In 2020, the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR will visit Queensland, both the metro centre and the Tropical North, the Northern Territory, Western Australia, New South Wales, South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania, fully realising Duane’s original dream of ensuring the music loving public around the country had access to top quality festivals.

“The past 10 years have gone so fast and we have been so proud to see the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR continue to grow each year,” says Duane. “The support we have received from audiences has been phenomenal. To everyone who has attended a RED HOT SUMMER TOUR show over the last decade – thank you. You are the reason we do what we do, and will continue to bring you the best quality music experience, every year. We can’t wait to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Red Hot Rock with music fans around the country.”

Reforming for this special 10th anniversary of the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR, Hunters & Collectors performances are a rare thing indeed and a huge coup for music fans. The legendary band disbanded over two decades ago and have only performed again a handful of times since – notably at The Sound Relief Concert in 2009 and a brief run five years ago. Banding together again specifically for the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR is apt, considering that Hunters & Collectors voracious live performances are so well suited in a festival environment. With smash hit songs such as When The River Runs Dry, Say Goodbye, Do You See What I See, True Tears Of Joy, Holy Grail and the anthemic Throw Your Arms Around Me, Hunters & Collectors have sold over one million albums spawning 19 hit singles.

“The lads are very excited to be getting out into all the regional towns that made them welcome when they were touring at their peak throughout Australia,” says Hunter & Collectors lead singer Mark Seymour. “This tour is going to be huge.”

James Reyne has been treading the boards in the rock halls of Australian music for decades. From his time fronting the legendary Australian Crawl through to his successful solo career, James’ music is part of Australian history. As a prolific songwriter and strong vocalist, it’s no surprise that James has won accolade after accolade for his contribution to music. When Australian Crawl split in the mid-1980s, James embarked on a successful solo career. James Reye stands alone within an elite cluster of exclusive Australian performers.

The Living End are considered Australian rock royalty, and for good reason. Their blistering live performances have seen them perform far and wide, and their reputation precedes them, they rock from the first note to the last. When The Living End first smashed onto the scene in 1997 with their double-A single Prisoner of Society and Second Solution, they embraced a new Australian sound and fans and critics sat up and listened. Since then they have released seven studio albums, two of which have debuted at #1 on the ARIA Chart – four of those are Platinum and two are Gold.
