Twenty years after their Australian classics Weir and Mascara catapulted them onto the national stage Killing Heidi are back celebrating 20 years. Today the band announced they’re doing a regional tour of Australia, and it’s the Gold Coast time to rock! Killing Heidi will grace Nightquarter on September 30th.
The tour follows up their successful capital city tour in June, and gives Killing Heidi the exciting opportunity to reconnect with the parts of Australia they’ve really missed in their 10 years off the road.
“We’re so excited to announce some regional dates, we love getting to regional areas and performing outside the cities,” said vocalist, Ella Hooper.
“I can’t believe it’s been twenty years since we started this band, I was thirteen, (Jesse) was fifteen. We are loving getting back into playing these songs again after so long,” said Ella.
“I think we’re playing theses songs better than we ever did. People may know the songs, and they’ll get to hear the songs they love, but they’ve never seen Killing Heidi like this,” said Jesse Hooper.
The early naughties belonged to Killing Heidi with multiple tracks landing in the top 20 of triple j’s Hottest 100. They’ve taken out four ARIA awards, four times platinum status and the critically-acclaimed APRA songwriters of the year award.
Killing Heidi is a seminal part of the Australia independent music industry story.
Tickets will be available on Friday, August 28 from facebook.com/killingheidiband.
