Premier Artists Present
LIVE IN THE GERSHWIN ROOM // Killing Heidi are back! After two sold out shows in the Gersh in 2019, the 90's icons will rock the Espy once again! With special guests Dallas Frasca
Killing Heidi are officially forever. Twenty years ago, when the disarming folk-pop of Kettle launched Ella and Jesse Hooper into high radio rotation, it was something neither expected. But tour after tour, the Violet Town siblings are finding their explosive power pop more entrenched in the Oz rock pantheon.
There's a whole generation that doesn't need reminding that the early '00s belonged to Killing Heidi. Weir hit #2 and Mascara #14 in Triple J’s Hottest 100. Debut album Reflector won four major ARIA awards and sold 4 times platinum as Ella and Jesse took out the prestigious APRA Songwriters of the Year award in 2001.
After a fruitful decade of diverse solo and duo pursuits, the pair reignited the flame for the 20th anniversary of Queenscliff Music Festival in 2016: a perfect reflection of their first teenaged performances under the Killing Heidi banner.
Blown away by the warm welcome and electric energy of a capacity crowd, they went on to meet snowballing demand at the Zoo Twilights concert series at Taronga and Melbourne Zoos.
In 2018, they kicked it up another gear with a SOLD OUT capital cities tour backed by Live Nation and followed by an extensive regional run of shows. A year later, they hooked up for a co-headlining national tour with '90s rock icons, Baby Animals.
August 2019 saw the band sell out not one, but TWO shows at the iconic Hotel Esplanade in St Kilda.
Due to popular demand, Killing Heidi will again grace the Espy stage for a one off show on January 24 2020 and once again, our mates Dallas Frasca will be joining as support.
We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam people as the First People of this land on which we live, love and play.
