Tickets went on sale to the general public yesterday and already three of the 20-plus festival dates have sold-out, the latest being the Cockatoo Island show on Saturday 8th February. Due to popular demand, organisers have announced a second Cockatoo Island show – on Sunday 9th February – that will go on sale today.

The line-up of Red Hot Rock in 2020 is an incredible coup for music-fans. Headlined by ARIA Hall of Fame inductees Hunters & Collectors, who are reuniting for the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR, they are bringing with them special guests James Reyne, The Living End, The Angels, Baby Animals, Killing Heidi and Boom Crash Opera.

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. 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. 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 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. 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.

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. Marking another milestone on the tour, Boom Crash Opera celebrate the 30th anniversary of their ARIA Top 10 album These Are Crazy Times. To make the occasion even more special, the band are excited to welcome back Dale Ryder who will lead the vocal charge.

Tickets are only available through authorised ticket outlets listed. Tickets go on sale from 10am today for the second Cockatoo Island show on Sunday 9th February 2020.
