Dates rescheduled for the summer of 2022

Today the organisers of the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR have sadly announced the postponement of the remaining dates on the 2020 run, which was originally rescheduled for October this year, due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19. The tour, which marks the 10th anniversary of the beloved regional festival – headlined by Hunters & Collectors with special guests James Reyne, The Living End, The Angels, Baby Animals, Killing Heidi and Boom Crash Opera – celebrated the decade milestone with a sell out run before the pandemic hit. The October dates were scheduled for Saturday 10th at Seppelsfield – Barossa, South Australia; Saturday 17th at Kiama Showgrounds in Kiama, New South Wales; and Saturday 24th at North Gardens in Ballarat, Victoria.

Promoter Duane McDonald said everyone involved in the tour was hoping the Barossa, Kiama and Ballarat shows would be able to go ahead and were devastated to make the announcement today. “Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions surrounding mass gatherings, we have made the heartbreaking decision not to proceed with the upcoming October dates,” he said. “The health and welfare of our patrons, artists, staff, and residents of the local areas are our number one priority. All artists have agreed to play the three shows in the summer of 2022, which we are very thankful for. Unfortunately, 2021 was not an option due to artist availabilities. All of these events are sold-out, and we hope that you choose to keep your ticket and join us on the new rescheduled dates.”

All Ticketmaster customers will be contacted in coming days with an option to keep their ticket or receive a full refund. For tickets purchased from other outlets, ticketholders are asked to please contact their point of purchase.
