Ballarat get ready for an all Australian music celebration. The Red Hot Summer Tour turns 10 next year and is set to return to North Gardens in March 2020.

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 6 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.

Tickets for the Red Hot Summer Tour in Ballarat, March 28th 2020, go on sale Thursday the 8th of August. https://www.ticketmaster.com.au/event/130056CDD5737EE9

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.

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.

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.

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.

Killing Heidi also celebrate an auspicious anniversary in 2020, two decades since the release of their rock-pop debut Reflector.

Ella Hooper joined 3BA Bigshow host PT to speak about the return of Killing Heidi and being part of the 10th anniversary of the Red Hot Summer Tour.

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.
