Hunters & Collectors, The Living End, Killing Heidi and more head to the Yarra Valley for the first time for Red Hot Summer Tour 2022.
Great news: The Red Hot Summer Tour is heading to the iconic Rochford Wines in the Yarra Valley for the first time, with the addition of one final show on the Unfinished Business run by popular demand. The tour features an exciting lineup headlined by ARIA Hall of Fame inductees Hunters & Collectors, with special guests James Reyne, The Living End, The Angels, Baby Animals, Killing Heidi and Chocolate Starfish.
Since the Red Hot Summer Tour kicked off in February, events have been selling out around the nation and it’s no surprise why. The 2022 line-up was a special nod back to highly anticipated celebration of the 10th anniversary tour in 2020.

With Hunters & Collectors performances already being a rare occurrence, organisers are excited for the epic opportunity to bring the Unfinished Business run to Rochford Wines.
“This is the first time we have taken the Red Hot Summer Tour to the iconic Rochford Wines,” says promoter Duane McDonald.
“It is fitting that we are wrapping up the 2022 tour with this announcement. It has been a spectacular run of shows. Thank you to everyone who has come out and shared in the music. We look forward to finishing off the 2022 Red Hot Summer Tour in October.”
Headed up by Hunters & Collectors, this is the last chance for music fans to see the legendary band who disbanded over two decades ago and have only performed again a handful of times since – notably at The Sound Relief Concert in 2009 and a brief run five years ago. Banding together again specifically for the Red Hot Summer Tour is apt, considering that Hunters & Collectors voracious live performances are so well suited in a festival environment.
With smash hit songs such as When The River Runs Dry, Say Goodbye, Do You See What I See, True Tears Of Joy, Holy Grail and the anthemic Throw Your Arms Around Me, Hunters & Collectors have sold over one million albums spawning 19 hit singles.
Joining these legends, the Yarra Valley will see the likes of prolific songwriter and strong vocalist James Reyne, Australian rock royalty The Living End, Aussie rock icons The Angels, as well as Baby Animals, Killing Heidi, and Chocolate Starfish, the epitome of a concert party!
Don’t miss this special final Red Hot Summer Tour show at Rochford Wines. Tickets will sell out.
The Red Hot Summer Tour is Rochford Wines at Yarra Valley on Saturday, October 1. Tickets go on sale at 10am Thursday 30 June 2022 via Ticketmaster.
