AUSROCK GIANTS KILLING HEIDI TO HEADLINE AT #AGNESBLUESFEST 2021
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. Their debut album Reflector won four major ARIA awards and sold 4 times platinum as Ella and Jesse Hooper took out the prestigious APRA Songwriters of the Year award in 2001.
Ella reflects, “What Killing Heidi's music meant and still means to the people that shared that amazing time with us really blows me away. I meet so many people, especially young women, who tell me how Killing Heidi inspired them to be themselves, back themselves or even start a band, and I'm completely honoured that it had that effect on people”.
After a fruitful decade of diverse solo and duo pursuits, Ella and Jesse reignited the Killing Heidi flame in 2016 at the 20th Anniversary Queenscliff Music Festival; a perfect reflection of their first teenaged performances under the Killing Heidi banner. After a sold-out capital cities tour and extensive regional run of shows in 2018, they hooked up in 2019 to co-headline with 90’s rock icons Baby Animals.
As well as headlining the #AgnesBluesfest main Marquee Stage for the first time next month with a vibrant show, 2021 will also see Killing Heidi rocking out on the monster Red Hot Summer Tour across Australia from March, with fellow Australian rock giants Jimmy Barnes, Hoodoo Gurus, Jon Stevens, Diesel, Vika & Linda and Chris Cheney (Living End).
