Twenty years after their Australian classics Weir and Mascara catapulted them to top of the national charts, Killing Heidi 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.
Tickets will be available on Friday, August 28 from facebook.com/killingheidiband.
The tour follows up to their super successful, rave review garnering 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.
Killing Heidi 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 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.
“Ella’s performance is as alive as ever. Vibrant and rockin’, it was clearly evident she was enjoying being back on stage fronting Killing Heidi, especially during the harder hitting songs, such as ‘Superman/Supergirl’, ‘Mascara’ and set-closing, crowd favorite, ‘Weir’.” — Rolling Stone
“Similar to how a ballerina can silence a crowd, Ms Hooper can incite (the crowd’s) chaos to whatever level suitable. Needless to say the chemistry between her and her brother is still impossible to fracture.” — GlamAdelaide
The early naughties belonged to Killing Heidi with Weir placing number two and Mascara number fourteen in triple j’s Hottest 100. ‘Reflector’ went onto to take out four ARIA awards and reach four times platinum status. The Hooper siblings also won the critically-acclaimed APRA songwriters of the year award. Killing Heidi is a seminal part of the Australian independent music story.
