Music icon Elton John, will traverse Australia and New Zealand in 2019-2020, on his epic Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.
Between December 2019 and February 2020, the legendary performer will deliver his famed songbook to spellbound audiences, on his very last tour, playing across a mammoth run that includes Capital City concerts, along with stops at some of Australia's finest outdoor venues.
Elton John's three-year Farewell Yellow Brick Road global tour has already been hailed as one of his most “energetic, dazzlingly-original and joyful celebrations”. Elton's legendary catalogue, including beloved songs ‘Bennie and the Jets', ‘Rocket Man', ‘Tiny Dancer', ‘Crocodile Rock', ‘Philadelphia Freedom' and more, are showcased in a musical masterpiece that is a “reflective and stunning tribute to a great artist's career” (NME), also celebrating his 50-plus year collaboration with lyricist Bernie Taupin – one of the great song-writing partnerships of all time.
"I'm ecstatic and humbled to continue to play for audiences across the globe. I plan to bring to my final tour the passion and creativity that has entertained my fans for decades…It's the most produced and fantastic show I've ever done. I want to go out with a bang…" – Elton John
More than a concert; an unforgettable memory!
There's nothing more Australian than hot sun, warm waves and Cold Chisel. The band's classic songs like Khe Sanh, Flame Trees, Bow River, My Baby, Cheap Wine, Saturday Night and You Got Nothing I Want have become the soundtrack to our summers.
Since their legendary Last Stand way back in 1983, Cold Chisel has reformed for just four national tours, but they almost always played indoors and those gigs didn't happen over the holidays.
Now, for the first time ever, this legendary Australian band will be playing 14 very special outdoor shows in Australia and New Zealand during summer. Between New Year's Eve and the second weekend of February, they'll do gigs on the beach, gigs by the river and gigs in the bush. You've never seen anything like it before. You'll never see anything like it again.
It's called the Blood Moon Tour 2020 – named after a rare lunar eclipse where the sun, earth and moon all briefly align before returning to their own orbits.
The RED HOT SUMMER TOUR returns to the Roche Estate in 2020. Celebrating 10 years of Red Hot Rock in 2020. 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.
“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. 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.” says Duane.
Hunters & Collectors
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.
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 widely 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 are close to releasing their eighth studio album 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!
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.
Celebrating the 20 year anniversary of their rock-pop debut album Reflector. This album included the smash hit singles – 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.
Boom Crash Opera
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.
