As one of the hottest summer festivals on the calendar, the annual RED HOT SUMMER TOUR is once again bringing out an incredible line-up of the best talent in the Australian Music Industry. The 2016 tour features the proverbial who’s who of Oz rock royalty; featuring Jimmy Barnes, Noiseworks, The Angels, Mark Seymour & The Undertow and The Badloves. Set to be the largest tour in the festival’s history, audiences can expect a day jam packed with classic hits with dates running throughout Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania.

RED HOT SUMMER TOUR promoter Duane McDonald says the 2016 festival will be huge, with 15 shows booked. “We always receive requests from audiences in regional areas to bring the tour through their town,” he says. “This year we have expanded to take the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR to new areas and new venues, which makes it the biggest run we have done for the tour to date. We can’t wait to get out on the road in 2016.”

Jimmy Barnes needs no introduction to Aussie audiences. As a legend both from his time fronting Cold Chisel and his top charting solo career, Barnes has toured the breadth of Australia. He has an enviable back catalogue that makes for incredible live performances with songs like Working Class Man, When Your Love Is Gone and No Second Prize to name a few. It has been a few years since Jimmy Barnes has headlined the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR, so it is no surprise that his return is highly anticipated. The 2016 Red Hot Summer Tour gives rock fans a chance to see Jimmy Barnes at his best and enjoy classic hits which have made him an icon in the Australian music scene.

Noiseworks are Australian rock legends and are well reputed for their incredible live shows. They are adored by music fans and critics alike. The multi-ARIA nominated band features some of the best musicians in the country and have produced a swag of incredible songs, such as Take Me Back, Love Somebody, Touch, Freedom, Miles and Miles and In My Youth to name a few. The band sold in excess of 1.2 million albums with 15 hit singles before calling a break in the early 1990s. They are now back and they are rocking harder than ever and their upcoming performances on the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR are guaranteed to blow the speakers!

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. Fronted now by Dave Gleeson, The Angels have had a massive couple of years, not only celebrating their 40th anniversary, but also releasing an album of all-new material. With hits like Long Line, Marseille, Be With You, After the Rain, Shadow Boxer and Mr Damage to name a few. Audiences will be in for a treat when The Angels take to the stage.

When it comes to one of the country’s most prolific songwriters, the name Mark Seymour is one of the first to pop to mind. Mark Seymour and the Undertow have been steadily touring the country promoting their latest release Mayday, demonstrating to audiences why this talented songsmith has endured such longevity in the Australian music scene. With a back catalogue of songs such as Throw Your Arms Around Me, Holy Grail, Football Train, Do You See What I See and When The River Runs Dry, to name a few, any time in the company of Mark and his band is a treat for all music lovers.

The Badloves are an Australian institution. Established in Melbourne in the late 1980s, they have made an indelible imprint on the local scene, from their original compositions to their collaborations. Described as having a ‘neo-hippy, retro’ sound, they have an impressive back catalogue including the likes of Green Limousine, I Remember, Lost and Memphis to name a few. They’ve toured with icons of the Australian and international music scene, and are revered for their live shows. The band called it quits in 2010, only reforming in 2015 for a run of shows, making their inclusion on the 2016 line-up of the RED HOT SUMMER TOUR a very special one indeed.

The RED HOT SUMMER TOUR always sells out well in advance, and year after year it has been proven to be one of the best value for money concert experiences in Australia. Music fans are recommended to get in early to secure their tickets so they don’t miss out on one of the biggest line-ups of Australian music royalty to share the same stage.
