Hilltop Hoods Announce 'The Show Business' Australian Tour

Published At: 02 May 2022 , 12:36 PM

Multi-platinum selling, award-winning group Hilltop Hoods have today announced the tour dates for their The Show Business Tour, which sees them perform headline shows across Australia this coming August and September.

Joining the legacy Australian act on the tour are A.B. Original, who are set to perform a taste of new tracks amongst classic cuts from their brilliant debut album, Reclaim Australia. Also joining them on the bill is highly hyped, emerging Kenyan-born Australian singer-songwriter Elsy Wameyo and world-renowned turntablist DJ Total Eclipse.

The tour follows their biggest and most successful run to date, The Great Expanse World Tour, which saw them play sold-out arenas to over 100,000 fans across 14 different countries. It also set the record for the largest tour of any Australian act in 2019.

Today's announcement closely follows the release of their brand new single Show Business, which features US soul singer Eamon. 

Suffa of Hilltop Hoods says, "The idea for Show Business came from something my buddy Dools used to say to me whenever he’d call me on the road.

"I’d inevitably be stuck at a gas station in the middle of nowhere with a hangover whenever he’d call, weeks away from getting home and he’d always laugh and say ‘What, and quit show business?’

"The downs can be quite serious in the music business, particularly over the last two years, but the ups make it worth it."

Hilltop Hoods are truly a once in a generation Australian act, winning 10 ARIA Awards, achieving six #1 records, playing sold-out arena tours and having over sixty Platinum accreditations and counting.

You can grab tickets via the Telstra Plus member Pre-sale from 11am (local time) on Thursday 5 May 2022 before the general public on sale at 10am (local time) on Wednesday 11 May.
