Perth Arena says
To celebrate their newly announced recording project, HILLTOP HOODS will be undertaking their biggest and most adventurous domestic tour to date, playing Perth Arena on 30 April 2016.

The Restrung Tour, which will see the only Hilltop Hoods headline performances in 2016, promises to be an extraordinary event as it brings to life the music from their new album ‘Drinking From The Sun, Walking Under Stars Restrung’ with Australia’s best orchestras and choirs. Once again, Hilltop Hoods continue to rewrite the Hip Hop rule-book.

“We’re pretty excited to be hitting the road backed by an orchestra and a choir. The songs are going to take on a whole new life with fifty plus musicians joining us on stage.”

Recorded 2 years apart but as companion pieces, their new recording project ties together the band’s two previous ARIA #1, double platinum albums, ‘Walking Under Stars’ and ‘Drinking From The Sun’. Featuring a selection of tracks from each album, the songs have been rerecorded, remixed, and restructured with the 32-piece Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, plus the 20 piece Adelaide Chamber Singers Choir. Composer Jamie Messenger handled the orchestral arrangements on the album, with the whole project coming together under the guidance of the Hilltop Hoods and NZ conductor Hamish McKeich.

Special guest on the band’s national tour is London-born, rural Ireland- raised singing star Maverick Sabre, who has already collaborated Hilltop Hoods on hits ‘Won’t Let You Down’ & ‘Live and Let Go’. With a short career already producing UK gold-selling 2012 debut album – ‘Lonely Are The Brave’ – Maverick’s keenly-observed lyrics and superb soul vocals will be the first time Australian audiences experience the class that is Maverick Sabre.

Also performing with Hilltop Hoods at Perth Arena will be the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, Giovanni Consort and New Zealand born conductor Hamish McKeich. Hamish has forged an impressive international conducting career working regularly in Europe, Australia and with New Zealand’s major orchestras. Hamish also possesses a passionate loyalty for developing the repertoire of contemporary and experimental music and has worked with acts as diverse as Salmonella Dub, Marlena Show, and Serj Tankian (System Of A Down) and The Pointer Sisters.

Don’t miss your chance to see this dynamic and collaborative live performance at Perth Arena on 30 April 2016.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Tuesday 8 December 2015 at 9am through Ticketek.
