Hunters & Collectors lead an all-star Oz rock line-up for Red Hot Summer

Do you see what I see? That’s right, Oz rock icons Hunters & Collectors will lead a fully stacked line-up for the 10th iteration of the Red Hot Summer Tour!

The popular tour which, last year, brought the likes of Jimmy Barnes, Joan Jett and The Living End to Roche Estate, will be rounded out by Australian Crawl legend James Reyne, The Angels, Baby Animals, Killing Heidi and Boom Crash Opera.

Also, because they had such a great time on the tour this year, The Living End are also jumping on the bill for another go-round.

Having only performed a handful of times since they disbanded back in 1999, the chance to see Hunters & Collectors in full flight, ripping through such classics as When The River Runs Dry, Holy Grail, Throw Your Arms Around Me, The Slab, and Say Goodbye, is a rare and enticing one indeed.

“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,” frontman Mark Seymour said.

“This tour is going to be huge.”

With the rest of the bill reading like a who’s who of Oz rock and roll this one is going to be a Red Hot Summer to remember.

For example, did you catch The Angels recent sold-out gig at Belmont 16s that saw the pub rock legends rip through their seminal sophomore album No Exit? If so, enough said. If not, you’re in for a full-tilt rock and roll treat.

It’s also sure to be a big one for Onion Skin hitmakers Boom Crash Opera who will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of their mammoth album These Here Are Crazy Times which spawned the aforementioned hit as well as The Best Thing, Talk About It, Get Out Of The House, and Dancing In The Storm.

To make the occasion even more special, frontman Dale Ryder, who resigned from the band back in 2016, will rejoin the fold to lead the vocal charge.

Just take it from Mark Seymour – this tour is going to be huge.

The Red Hot Summer Tour will roll into Roche Estate on Saturday 15 February.

Tickets are on sale from 9am on Thursday 8 August.
