THE RED HOT SUMMER TOUR RETURNS IN 2018 WITH THE ULTIMATE ROCK N ROLL LINE-UP AROUND AUSTRALIA

SUZI QUATRO, THE ANGELS, BABY ANIMALS, THE SCREAMING JETS, MOVING PICTURES & CHOCOLATE STARFISH

The Red Hot Summer Tour is back in 2018 and the line-up is bigger than ever! The undisputed international Queen of Rock Suzi Quatro, joined by special guests The Angels, Baby Animals, The Screaming Jets, Moving Pictures and Chocolate Starfish. The touring regional festival has been selling out each year and with the enviable line-up in 2018, the event is travelling to new regions and venues which have previously not been part of the Red Hot Summer Tour run.

After a sold-out tour in 2014, Suzi Quatro is back to headline the ultimate rock n roll line-up. There are few female performers who have a career as successful and versatile as Suzi Quatro. When it comes to summing up her decades of music, there is no better way than to quote Suzi directly – “I will retire when I go onstage, shake my ass and there is silence”. It’s no surprise then to find out that Suzi has never stopped working in one guise or another, whether it is playing her solo rock show to packed houses, hosting her own show on the BBC Radio 2, performing on the West End or penning hit songs. To date, this enigmatic performer has sold over 55 million records, in fact, for a seven-year period in the 1970s she was featured in the British charts for an incredible 101 weeks. Her hits include The Wild One, 48 Crash, Devil Gate Drive, She’s in Love with You and If You Can’t Give Me Love to name a few.

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. With hits like Long Line, Marseille, Be With You, After the Rain, Shadow Boxer and Mr Damage to name a few. Audiences need to get ready to rock when The Angels take to the stage at the 2018 Red Hot Summer Tour.

Baby Animals burst onto the Australian scene in the 1990s with a solid rock force and a sassy lead singer. Suze DeMarchi proved that girls could rock just as hard as guys and the Baby Animals soon kicked some impressive rock butt with hits such as Rush You, Early Warning and One Word. The band scored themselves ARIA awards for best album and toured the globe. When they split in the mid-1990s they ended a special era of Australian music. The band’s inclusion on the Red Hot Summer Tour line-up is a rare chance for music fans to see their original rock at its best.

Aussie rock doesn’t get much more powerful than The Screaming Jets. After celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2014, they released a new long-player in 2016 – Chrome – an album which showed the band were still rockin’ as hard as when they first crashed onto the scene in Newcastle back in 1989. With a swag of hits such as Better, Helping Hand, Sad Song, October Grey and Come On under their belt, The Screaming Jets are renowned for their pumpin’ live performances. They – and rightfully so – earned themselves the reputation as one of the country’s hardest working touring bands early on and it is this notoriety that still sees them packing rooms at shows today.

Moving Pictures are one of those bands whose songs are part of the Australian psyche. Their 1980s classic What About Me epitomised Australian music at the time. Their debut album Days of Innocence was a chart topper both in Australia and overseas. The group disbanded in the late 1980s but reformed again recently much to audiences delight! Their inclusion on the 2018 Red Hot Summer Tour line-up is highly anticipated.
