The Red Hot Summer Tour returns in 2021 with a COVID-safe festival sporting a massive line-up of Australian artists. Headlined by long-time supporters of the Red Hot Summer Tour, Jimmy Barnes, Hoodoo Gurus, Jon Stevens, Diesel, Vika & Linda and Chris Cheney, the dates scheduled for Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia and Queensland are the first to be announced for the 2021 tour. New South Wales and Victoria will be added to the tour pending further easing of restrictions.
Promoter Duane McDonald says the return of the festival in 2021 has been a result of continuous hard-work to ensure the tour can be presented in a COVID-safe manner, and can continue to support the incredible music scene within Australia. “We were disappointed to cancel much of the 2020 tour,” he says. “But safety was, and always is, our first priority. We continue to work with governments and stakeholders to make sure that we can continue the Red Hot Summer Tour in 2021, and to ensure that all the shows are delivered in a COVID-safe way. We look forward to being able to announce more dates on the 2021 shortly, with Victoria and New South Wales joining the itinerary.”
Bringing together an enviable line-up of Aussie acts was paramount for the organisers, and Duane says everyone on board for the 2021 run can’t wait. “We are excited to have the opportunity to hit the road in 2021 bringing some great music experiences that the Red Hot Summer Tour has been sharing with audiences for over a decade,” he says. “Bringing together our mates in the music industry and taking the tour around Australia has always been special, but next year’s run is going to mean a lot to everyone. We’ve invited some of the artists who have been championing the tour from the very beginning and know everyone can’t wait to put on an incredible show. We look forward to making new musical memories for the next decade and can’t wait to see all the music-lovers who have supported us over the years at one of the shows in 2021.”
