Killing Heidi Hit The Road This June

Aussie Pop-Rock darlings Killing Heidi are packing their bags to embark on their first national tour in more than a decade. The Hooper siblings will be slaying stages in Perth, Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane this June.

Twenty years have passed since triple j unearthed Killing Heidi with their disarming folk pop song, ‘Kettle’. The band soon grew into colourful teenage power pop and burst onto the national and international stage with their breakthrough debut album Reflector, released in March 2000. The album, which was made available digitally last 24 March, spawned anthemic singles ‘Mascara’ and ‘Weir’ that made it a blow-out success and cemented it as one of Australia’s most loved pop albums. It went on to take out four ARIA awards and reach 4x platinum status. Killing Heidi also won the critically-acclaimed APRA songwriters of the year award.

In November 2016, Ella and Jesse Hooper reignited the flame, re-banding for the 20th anniversary of Queenscliff Music Festival, a perfect fit as it marked 20 years since the siblings first started performing as ‘Killing Heidi'. Inspired by the highly-charged energy and capacity crowd their reunion performance drew, they then went on to amaze fans at the Zoo Twilight concert series in February at Taronga and Melbourne Zoos.

"Killing Heidi live was always where it was at for me. I feel we're better than ever now as we've never stopped playing music and we can dial it up to a whole new level. But the essence is the same. It's exciting and emotional for both us and the fans!" - Ella Hooper

"Killing Heidi was a big part of my youth and I can’t wait to perform these songs live for the people who loved them too. We’ll play all our biggest hits from our first singles Weir and Mascara through to our later releases like 'I Am' and 'Calm Down'." - Jesse Hooper

Grab your tickets now 'cause Killing Heidi can’t wait to wow you with their performances!
