EARLY naughties chart-toppers Killing Heidi are back on the road celebrating a 20-year reunion by hitting the road on an eleven date national tour, including an appearance at Chelsea Heights Hotel this month.
Sister and brother Ella and Jesse Hooper will hit the stage in Chelsea Heights next Friday (20 October) as the band follow up a June city tour with live gigs in regional areas for the first time in a decade.
“I can’t believe it’s been twenty years since we started this band, I was 13, Jesse was 15. We are loving getting back into playing these songs again after so long,” Ella said.
“We love getting to regional areas and performing outside the cities.”
The rock-pop band, whose hits include Mascara (1999) and Weir (2000), won four ARIA Music Awards in the year 2000.
Fans voted several of Killing Heidi’s songs into the top 20 of Triple j’s Hottest 100 songs list in the early naughties.
“I think we’re playing theses songs better than we ever did. People may know the songs, and they’ll get to hear the songs they love, but they’ve never seen Killing Heidi like this,” Jesse said.
