Hilltop Hoods have announced The Show Business Tour 2022 with headline shows scheduled across Australia this August and September.
This will be the legendary hip hop group’s first headline tour since 2019 when The Great Expanse World Tour saw them play sold-out arenas in 14 different countries. Beginning in Brisbane on August 27th, the trio will visit Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, before finishing the tour in Adelaide on September 24th.
They’ll be joined on tour by A.B. Original, set to perform iconic tracks from their 2016 debut album Reclaim Australia as well as new music. Additional support will be provided by Kenyan-born Australian singer-songwriter Elsy Wameyo and DJ Total Eclipse.
The tour announcement follows the release of Hilltop Hoods’ new single “Show Business”, their first single in almost two years. They recruited powerhouse US soul singer Eamon for the track, which sees the group contend with the highs and lows of a lifetime in the music industry.
“The idea for “Show Business” came from something my buddy Dools used to say to me whenever he’d call me on the road,” Suffa explained. “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.”
Pre-sale for Telstra Plus members begins on Thursday, May 5th (11am local time), before tickets to the general public go on sale on Wednesday, May 11th (10am local time).
