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. Now, for the first time ever, the acclaimed festival has announced a special Hunter Valley date, slated for April 2016. The tour, which was announced in September, will traverse throughout Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Tasmania. 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.

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 are excited to bring the Red Hot Summer Tour to the Hunter Valley for the first time, and I can’t imagine a better location for a great day of Aussie rock than in the magnificent Hunter Valley Gardens. 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.

All tickets purchased for the original Hunter Valley venue will be accepted at Roche Estate.
