Hunters & Collectors never had a Top 10 hit yet they have managed to sell-out 15 of the 26 Red Hot Summer dates for 2020 (so far).

Hunters & Collectors fans were album buyers but the occasional single did manage to crack the Top 40 every now and then. They had nine Top 40 singles in their day.

Hunters & Collectors by the hits
True Tears of Joy (no 14, 1992)

Holy Grail (no 20, 1993)

When The River Runs Dry (no 23, 1989)

Say Goodbye (no 24, 1986)

NB: The bands best known song ‘Throw Your Arms Around Me’ peaked at no 49 when it was originally released first as a single in 1984, then again from the ‘Human Frailty’ in 1985. Its 1990 chart position was via the ‘Collected Works’ album was in its third run as a single. Another now classic Hunters song ‘Turn A Blind Eye’ stalled at no 42.

With tickets still on sale for Mount Gambier, Launceston, Port Macquarie, Sydney, Toowoomba, Wodonga, Ballarat, Dubbo, Darwin, Cairns and Noosa the Hunters & Collectors Red Hot Summer tour will most likely be a complete sell-out once the tour gets underway.

Red Hot Summer 2020 will start in Bendigo on 4 January.
