Twenty years after their Australian classics Weir and Mascara catapulted them to top of the national charts, KillingHeidi are back on the road celebrating their 20 year reunion with a massive eleven date tour; taking their live show to regional Australia for the first time in a decade. The tour follows up to their super successful, rave review garnering capital city tour in June, and gives KillingHeidi 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.
KillingHeidi will be hitting stages in Darwin, Ipswich, Gold Coast, Caloundra, Wollongong, Newcastle, Chelsea Heights, Mulgrave, Albury, Redland Bay and Toowoomba.
“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 KillingHeidi like this,” said Jesse Hooper.
The early naughties belonged to KillingHeidi 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. KillingHeidi is a seminal part of the Australia independent music industry story.
