Hunters & Collectors reform to headline epic rock show
Iconic Australian rock band Hunters and Collectors will reform for next year's Red Hot Summer Tour.
The epic homegrown line-up will see Hunters joined by James Reyne, The Living End, The Angels, Baby Animals, Killing Heidi and Boom Crash Opera play shows across mostly regional Australia between January and April next year.
It will be the first Hunters and Collectors tour since 2014 - the band are best known for Throw Your Arms Around Me, Say Goodbye, When The River Runs Dry, Talking to a Stranger, The Slab and Holy Grail.
These are the only dates the band will be performing.
Tickets for the Red Hot Summer Tour, which are priced at around $110, go on sale August 8 from Ticketmaster.
"It's a tour that's very much about traditional Australian rock and roll," Hunters frontman Mark Seymour said.
"Hunters and Collectors) create a great deal of excitement as a live musical force. It has its own energy and identity as a sound and people really like it."
It will be the tenth anniversary of the Red Hot Summer Tour.
Seymour, who has played the event with his solo band the Undertow, said they have created their own niche in the market.
"It's a really good model. The promoter Duane (McDonald) has found these venues, some in quite remote places in Australia, and the tickets are quite cheap. It's a very effective way of reaching Australian audiences where they live.
"It's not tricked up. The punters are relaxed and ready for it. I think they're just glad entertainment is coming to them, they just have to drive up the road to see it."
