The Red Hot Summer Tour is celebrating 10 years in 2020 with a four month tour around Australia. In a coup for music-fans, ARIA Hall of Fame inductees Hunters & Collectors (pictured above) 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 Red Hot Summer Tour will hit the Sandalford Estate in the Swan Valley, WA on January 12, 2020.

The legendary Hunters and Collectors disbanded over two decades ago and have only performed again a handful of times since, including an unforgettable show at Kings Park in 2014. 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 also considered Australian rock royalty, and for good reason.

WA’s Baby Animals burst onto the 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. With Boom Crash Opera bringing hits such as Onion Skin and The Best Thing to open the show, this looks to be a big day out to be reckoned with for big kids.
