Hilltop Hoods have today announced the ‘The Great Expanse World Tour’ 2019, which will see the band play in 14 countries across the globe. The New Zealand leg has Hilltop Hoods returning to play four headline shows this July.
Having supported Eminem at Wellington’s Westpac Stadium at a New Zealand record-breaking concert in March, Hilltop Hoods will return for shows in Auckland, Wellington, Queensland and Christchurch.
Presale tickets for the New Zealand leg of ‘The Great Expanse World Tour’ will be available via Spark from 10am Wednesday 15 May, before the general public on sale at 10am Friday 17 May from Ticketek.
The 2019 tour will celebrate the release of Hilltop Hoods eighth studio album ‘The Great Expanse’, which broke yet another milestone in their home country of Australia debuting #1 on the ARIA Album chart. This brings the band’s total #1 Albums to an incredible 6, which is an ARIA record for the most #1 albums by an Australian band.
The record also became the fifth consecutive album by the trio to debut #1 on the ARIA Album Chart and delivered a string of hits including ‘Clark Griswold’ Feat. Adrian Eagle, ‘Leave Me Lonely’ and the latest single ‘Exit Sign’, featuring Ecca Vandal, which also boasts a guest appearance from the Hoods close friend and ally, Illy.
Fresh from the stages of ‘Groovin The Moo’ in Australia where the band road tested the new album alongside classic Hilltop Hoods, fans were treated to a blistering high-energy-leave-no-prisoners performance that saw the band cement their place even further in our psyche as one of Australia’s most loved live acts. Expect all that and more with the 2019 world tour where crowds will be swept up in a set of fan favourites in what promises to be, yet another stand out Hilltop Hoods live experience.
Joining Hilltop Hoods for the New Zealand dates is the well regarded and respected DJ, Jordan Lee.
