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.

The Wolfe Brothers add more dates to their No Sad Song tour, continuing the national run into 2020

December 2019 – March 2020 – Plus Tamworth Country Music

Continuing the momentum of their massively successful year, country rockers The Wolfe Brothers have announced more dates on their No Sad Song tour, continuing the national run through well into 2020. After kicking off 2019 in the most extraordinary ‘dreams do come true’ way with a sweeping win at the Golden Guitars, the Tassie boys have not stopped – touring the width and breadth of Australia with mate Lee Kernaghan on his Backroad Nation tour, heading overseas to join Canadian superstar Gord Bamford on a whirlwind run of dates, including the acclaimed Calgary Stampede rodeo, and consistently playing to packed houses with their own headline shows.

Taking home Golden Guitars for 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, and the coveted Album Of The Year accolade was a huge nod from everyone in the industry that The Wolfe Brothers’ hard work has paid off. After 13 previous nominations in the Australian Country Music Awards over the last five years, it was a powerful moment for the band to take home the award on their sixth visit to Tamworth.

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, earning their stripes, 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 seven years – and they continue to do so – opening his shows and playing as part of his band. Fast forward and The Wolfe Brothers are now selling out their own headline shows.

The Wolfe Brothers’ latest release is Country Heart, which features the No Sad Song single. Country Heart earned the group an ARIA nomination for Best Country Album in 2018 and debuted on the ARIA Charts at #9. The first single Ain’t Seen It Yet was also nominated as a finalist in the APRA Awards for Country Song Of The Year in 2019. 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.

Tickets for The Wolfe Brothers No Sad Song Australian Tour 2019 are on sale now. The Wolfe Brothers fourth studio album, Country Heart, is out now through ABC / Universal Music.

Damien Leith celebrates the golden anniversary of Only The Lonely with a massive 2020 tour ROY – A Tribute To Roy Orbison with Strings

The year 2020 marks 50 years since the release of Only The Lonely, the classic Roy Orbison and Joe Melson hit song that still graces the airwaves today. With a nod to this onerous Golden anniversary, singer-songwriter Damien Leith is once again paying homage to his musical hero ROY, with a select run of dates celebrating his impressive legacy. ROY – A Tribute To Roy Orbison plus Strings will see Damien, arguably one of the finest voices in Australia, performing all his favourite classic hits arranged by celebrated composer Jessica Graham and accompanied by a sublime String Quartet in an unforgettable intimate setting.

This isn’t the first time Damien has created an ode to the legend behind songs such as Pretty Woman and You Got It, to name a few. His national show paying tribute to Roy has sold-out theatres throughout the past decade. Ever the consummate performer, Damien has always had a strong affinity with Roy Orbison’s music. He recorded and worked with the late Barbara Orbison and continues to write with legendary musicians in Nashville who worked with Roy throughout his career. In fact, when Damien released his album Roy – A Tribute To Roy Orbison it stayed in the ARIA Top 20 chart for 22 weeks and it was nominated for not only an ARIA award but also sold multi-platinum.

Damien received the highest praise imaginable upon the release of the album. Barbara Orbison extended her support by saying: “Damien, I applaud you for doing a Roy album. Thank you. We wish you every bit of luck and success. You got it.”

Further rave reviews for the album, and Damien’s homage to the late-great Roy Orbison came from his long-time songwriting partner Joe Melson. Joe, who penned Crying, Only The Lonely, Blue Bayou and Running Scared with Roy, said: “Very few voices excite me, but I fell in love with Damien’s voice when I heard it. His unique voice has inspired me to write again, much in the same way Roy Orbison’s voice inspired me to write. I believe Damien is going to be a big star. All the best to you, Damien. Looking forward to good things with you.”

For Damien Leith himself, Roy Orbison is still one of his biggest influences, and it shows in the care he takes when paying homage to the great man’s music on stage. “Roy was a stylus, he created his own unique sound which made him stand out over so many other artists,” says Damien. “His incredible voice, mixed with dramatic pop/opera melodies became his signature. Working with Barbara on my album Roy – A Tribute To Roy Orbison was amazing. It was incredible to have her support and confidence in me, especially in interpreting Roy’s songs and giving them my own stamp. Also, while recording that album I met with Joe Melson – who co-wrote Only The Lonely and Crying – and we have since become good friends and write together almost every week via Skype.”

Damien Leith first captured the hearts of the Australian public in the 2006 reality television show Australian Idol. Since then he has enjoyed platinum selling albums and multiple awards including ARIAs, MTV Australia Video Music Awards and Helpmann Awards. In addition to his incredible musical successes, he has also hosted and co-hosted multiple television shows, penned two novels, and continues to co-host a popular breakfast radio show, having just won an Australian Commercial Radio Award (ACRA). He has also recently filmed his first feature movie, which he wrote with his wife and stars in – Just Ruby will be released mid-2020.

Tickets to Damien Leith’s ROY – A Tribute To Roy Orbison with Strings are on sale now.

Damien Leith celebrates the golden anniversary of Only The Lonely with a massive 2020 tour ROY – A Tribute To Roy Orbison with Strings

The year 2020 marks 50 years since the release of Only The Lonely, the classic Roy Orbison and Joe Melson hit song that still graces the airwaves today. With a nod to this onerous Golden anniversary, singer-songwriter Damien Leith is once again paying homage to his musical hero ROY, with a select run of dates celebrating his impressive legacy. ROY – A Tribute To Roy Orbison plus Strings will see Damien, arguably one of the finest voices in Australia, performing all his favourite classic hits arranged by celebrated composer Jessica Graham and accompanied by a sublime String Quartet in an unforgettable intimate setting.

This isn’t the first time Damien has created an ode to the legend behind songs such as Pretty Woman and You Got It, to name a few. His national show paying tribute to Roy has sold-out theatres throughout the past decade. Ever the consummate performer, Damien has always had a strong affinity with Roy Orbison’s music. He recorded and worked with the late Barbara Orbison and continues to write with legendary musicians in Nashville who worked with Roy throughout his career. In fact, when Damien released his album Roy – A Tribute To Roy Orbison it stayed in the ARIA Top 20 chart for 22 weeks and it was nominated for not only an ARIA award but also sold multi-platinum.

Damien received the highest praise imaginable upon the release of the album. Barbara Orbison extended her support by saying: “Damien, I applaud you for doing a Roy album. Thank you. We wish you every bit of luck and success. You got it.”

Further rave reviews for the album, and Damien’s homage to the late-great Roy Orbison came from his long-time songwriting partner Joe Melson. Joe, who penned Crying, Only The Lonely, Blue Bayou and Running Scared with Roy, said: “Very few voices excite me, but I fell in love with Damien’s voice when I heard it. His unique voice has inspired me to write again, much in the same way Roy Orbison’s voice inspired me to write. I believe Damien is going to be a big star. All the best to you, Damien. Looking forward to good things with you.”

For Damien Leith himself, Roy Orbison is still one of his biggest influences, and it shows in the care he takes when paying homage to the great man’s music on stage. “Roy was a stylus, he created his own unique sound which made him stand out over so many other artists,” says Damien. “His incredible voice, mixed with dramatic pop/opera melodies became his signature. Working with Barbara on my album Roy – A Tribute To Roy Orbison was amazing. It was incredible to have her support and confidence in me, especially in interpreting Roy’s songs and giving them my own stamp. Also, while recording that album I met with Joe Melson – who co-wrote Only The Lonely and Crying – and we have since become good friends and write together almost every week via Skype.”

Damien Leith first captured the hearts of the Australian public in the 2006 reality television show Australian Idol. Since then he has enjoyed platinum selling albums and multiple awards including ARIAs, MTV Australia Video Music Awards and Helpmann Awards. In addition to his incredible musical successes, he has also hosted and co-hosted multiple television shows, penned two novels, and continues to co-host a popular breakfast radio show, having just won an Australian Commercial Radio Award (ACRA). He has also recently filmed his first feature movie, which he wrote with his wife and stars in – Just Ruby will be released mid-2020.

Tickets to Damien Leith’s ROY – A Tribute To Roy Orbison with Strings are on sale now.

The Wolfe Brothers add more dates to their No Sad Song tour, continuing the national run into 2020

December 2019 – March 2020 – Plus Tamworth Country Music

Continuing the momentum of their massively successful year, country rockers The Wolfe Brothers have announced more dates on their No Sad Song tour, continuing the national run through well into 2020. After kicking off 2019 in the most extraordinary ‘dreams do come true’ way with a sweeping win at the Golden Guitars, the Tassie boys have not stopped – touring the width and breadth of Australia with mate Lee Kernaghan on his Backroad Nation tour, heading overseas to join Canadian superstar Gord Bamford on a whirlwind run of dates, including the acclaimed Calgary Stampede rodeo, and consistently playing to packed houses with their own headline shows.

Taking home Golden Guitars for 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, and the coveted Album Of The Year accolade was a huge nod from everyone in the industry that The Wolfe Brothers’ hard work has paid off. After 13 previous nominations in the Australian Country Music Awards over the last five years, it was a powerful moment for the band to take home the award on their sixth visit to Tamworth.

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, earning their stripes, 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 seven years – and they continue to do so – opening his shows and playing as part of his band. Fast forward and The Wolfe Brothers are now selling out their own headline shows.

The Wolfe Brothers’ latest release is Country Heart, which features the No Sad Song single. Country Heart earned the group an ARIA nomination for Best Country Album in 2018 and debuted on the ARIA Charts at #9. The first single Ain’t Seen It Yet was also nominated as a finalist in the APRA Awards for Country Song Of The Year in 2019. 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.

Tickets for The Wolfe Brothers No Sad Song Australian Tour 2019 are on sale now. The Wolfe Brothers fourth studio album, Country Heart, is out now through ABC / Universal Music.

Red Hot Summer Tour @ Cockatoo Island

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.

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. 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’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.

Damien Leith celebrates the golden anniversary of Only The Lonely with a massive 2020 tour ROY – A Tribute To Roy Orbison with Strings

The year 2020 marks 50 years since the release of Only The Lonely, the classic Roy Orbison and Joe Melson hit song that still graces the airwaves today. With a nod to this onerous Golden anniversary, singer-songwriter Damien Leith is once again paying homage to his musical hero ROY, with a select run of dates celebrating his impressive legacy. ROY – A Tribute To Roy Orbison plus Strings will see Damien, arguably one of the finest voices in Australia, performing all his favourite classic hits arranged by celebrated composer Jessica Graham and accompanied by a sublime String Quartet in an unforgettable intimate setting.

This isn’t the first time Damien has created an ode to the legend behind songs such as Pretty Woman and You Got It, to name a few. His national show paying tribute to Roy has sold-out theatres throughout the past decade. Ever the consummate performer, Damien has always had a strong affinity with Roy Orbison’s music. He recorded and worked with the late Barbara Orbison and continues to write with legendary musicians in Nashville who worked with Roy throughout his career. In fact, when Damien released his album Roy – A Tribute To Roy Orbison it stayed in the ARIA Top 20 chart for 22 weeks and it was nominated for not only an ARIA award but also sold multi-platinum.

Damien received the highest praise imaginable upon the release of the album. Barbara Orbison extended her support by saying: “Damien, I applaud you for doing a Roy album. Thank you. We wish you every bit of luck and success. You got it.”

Further rave reviews for the album, and Damien’s homage to the late-great Roy Orbison came from his long-time songwriting partner Joe Melson. Joe, who penned Crying, Only The Lonely, Blue Bayou and Running Scared with Roy, said: “Very few voices excite me, but I fell in love with Damien’s voice when I heard it. His unique voice has inspired me to write again, much in the same way Roy Orbison’s voice inspired me to write. I believe Damien is going to be a big star. All the best to you, Damien. Looking forward to good things with you.”

For Damien Leith himself, Roy Orbison is still one of his biggest influences, and it shows in the care he takes when paying homage to the great man’s music on stage. “Roy was a stylus, he created his own unique sound which made him stand out over so many other artists,” says Damien. “His incredible voice, mixed with dramatic pop/opera melodies became his signature. Working with Barbara on my album Roy – A Tribute To Roy Orbison was amazing. It was incredible to have her support and confidence in me, especially in interpreting Roy’s songs and giving them my own stamp. Also, while recording that album I met with Joe Melson – who co-wrote Only The Lonely and Crying – and we have since become good friends and write together almost every week via Skype.”

Damien Leith first captured the hearts of the Australian public in the 2006 reality television show Australian Idol. Since then he has enjoyed platinum selling albums and multiple awards including ARIAs, MTV Australia Video Music Awards and Helpmann Awards. In addition to his incredible musical successes, he has also hosted and co-hosted multiple television shows, penned two novels, and continues to co-host a popular breakfast radio show, having just won an Australian Commercial Radio Award (ACRA). He has also recently filmed his first feature movie, which he wrote with his wife and stars in – Just Ruby will be released mid-2020.

Tickets to Damien Leith’s ROY – A Tribute To Roy Orbison with Strings are on sale now.

Damien Leith @ Heritage Bank Auditorium, TOOWOOMBA QLD

Damien Leith celebrates the golden anniversary of Only The Lonely with a massive 2020 tour ROY – A Tribute To Roy Orbison with Strings

The year 2020 marks 50 years since the release of Only The Lonely, the classic Roy Orbison and Joe Melson hit song that still graces the airwaves today. With a nod to this onerous Golden anniversary, singer-songwriter Damien Leith is once again paying homage to his musical hero ROY, with a select run of dates celebrating his impressive legacy. ROY – A Tribute To Roy Orbison plus Strings will see Damien, arguably one of the finest voices in Australia, performing all his favourite classic hits arranged by celebrated composer Jessica Graham and accompanied by a sublime String Quartet in an unforgettable intimate setting.

This isn’t the first time Damien has created an ode to the legend behind songs such as Pretty Woman and You Got It, to name a few. His national show paying tribute to Roy has sold-out theatres throughout the past decade. Ever the consummate performer, Damien has always had a strong affinity with Roy Orbison’s music. He recorded and worked with the late Barbara Orbison and continues to write with legendary musicians in Nashville who worked with Roy throughout his career. In fact, when Damien released his album Roy – A Tribute To Roy Orbison it stayed in the ARIA Top 20 chart for 22 weeks and it was nominated for not only an ARIA award but also sold multi-platinum.

Damien received the highest praise imaginable upon the release of the album. Barbara Orbison extended her support by saying: “Damien, I applaud you for doing a Roy album. Thank you. We wish you every bit of luck and success. You got it.”

Further rave reviews for the album, and Damien’s homage to the late-great Roy Orbison came from his long-time songwriting partner Joe Melson. Joe, who penned Crying, Only The Lonely, Blue Bayou and Running Scared with Roy, said: “Very few voices excite me, but I fell in love with Damien’s voice when I heard it. His unique voice has inspired me to write again, much in the same way Roy Orbison’s voice inspired me to write. I believe Damien is going to be a big star. All the best to you, Damien. Looking forward to good things with you.”

For Damien Leith himself, Roy Orbison is still one of his biggest influences, and it shows in the care he takes when paying homage to the great man’s music on stage. “Roy was a stylus, he created his own unique sound which made him stand out over so many other artists,” says Damien. “His incredible voice, mixed with dramatic pop/opera melodies became his signature. Working with Barbara on my album Roy – A Tribute To Roy Orbison was amazing. It was incredible to have her support and confidence in me, especially in interpreting Roy’s songs and giving them my own stamp. Also, while recording that album I met with Joe Melson – who co-wrote Only The Lonely and Crying – and we have since become good friends and write together almost every week via Skype.”

Damien Leith first captured the hearts of the Australian public in the 2006 reality television show Australian Idol. Since then he has enjoyed platinum selling albums and multiple awards including ARIAs, MTV Australia Video Music Awards and Helpmann Awards. In addition to his incredible musical successes, he has also hosted and co-hosted multiple television shows, penned two novels, and continues to co-host a popular breakfast radio show, having just won an Australian Commercial Radio Award (ACRA). He has also recently filmed his first feature movie, which he wrote with his wife and stars in – Just Ruby will be released mid-2020.

Tickets to Damien Leith’s ROY – A Tribute To Roy Orbison with Strings are on sale now.

Red Hot Summer Tour @ Queens Park – Frogs Hollow

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.

The Wolfe Brothers @ Harmonie German Club, CANBERRA ACT

The Wolfe Brothers add more dates to their No Sad Song tour, continuing the national run into 2020

December 2019 – March 2020 – Plus Tamworth Country Music

Continuing the momentum of their massively successful year, country rockers The Wolfe Brothers have announced more dates on their No Sad Song tour, continuing the national run through well into 2020. After kicking off 2019 in the most extraordinary ‘dreams do come true’ way with a sweeping win at the Golden Guitars, the Tassie boys have not stopped – touring the width and breadth of Australia with mate Lee Kernaghan on his Backroad Nation tour, heading overseas to join Canadian superstar Gord Bamford on a whirlwind run of dates, including the acclaimed Calgary Stampede rodeo, and consistently playing to packed houses with their own headline shows.

Taking home Golden Guitars for 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, and the coveted Album Of The Year accolade was a huge nod from everyone in the industry that The Wolfe Brothers’ hard work has paid off. After 13 previous nominations in the Australian Country Music Awards over the last five years, it was a powerful moment for the band to take home the award on their sixth visit to Tamworth.

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, earning their stripes, 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 seven years – and they continue to do so – opening his shows and playing as part of his band. Fast forward and The Wolfe Brothers are now selling out their own headline shows.

The Wolfe Brothers’ latest release is Country Heart, which features the No Sad Song single. Country Heart earned the group an ARIA nomination for Best Country Album in 2018 and debuted on the ARIA Charts at #9. The first single Ain’t Seen It Yet was also nominated as a finalist in the APRA Awards for Country Song Of The Year in 2019. 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.

Tickets for The Wolfe Brothers No Sad Song Australian Tour 2019 are on sale now. The Wolfe Brothers fourth studio album, Country Heart, is out now through ABC / Universal Music.
