Fresh from their sold-out ‘SHOW BUSINESS’ Australian arena tour in late 2022, along with
their biggest ever UK/Europe tour set to take place this June-July, the ‘HILLTOP HOODS NZ
2023 TOUR’ will be the first time Kiwi audiences experience the trio’s blistering high energy
performances in four years.

On their last visit HILLTOP HOODS supported Eminem on his NZ Rapture Tour, performing to a record breaking crowd of over 46,000. The band quickly followed this up with a run of
sold-out shows on the NZ leg of their 2019 ‘THE GREAT EXPANSE WORLD TOUR’ which saw HILLTOP HOODS play across 14 different countries, performing to over 100,000 fans.

With no plans on slowing down, the ‘HILLTOP HOODS NZ 2023 TOUR’ will showcase new
songs from the group’s upcoming album. Fans can look forward to experiencing explosive
performances of a brand new single, teased just last week, along with classic hits such as
‘Leave Me Lonely’, ‘Exit Sign’, feat Illy & Ecca Vandal, ‘The Nosebleed Section’, ‘Cosby
Sweater’, ‘Chase That Feeling’, and ‘Show Business’ feat. Eamon.

HILLTOP HOODS will be joined by special guest and Tāmaki Makauraru based rapper Freddy
Reynold, who represents the versatility of Aotearoa and the Southside culture that raised
him. Freddy comes armed to perform his freshest drop, ‘Silver Green and Gold’.

Ahead of their long awaited New Zealand tour, the band will have performed their new
single to fans in UK/Europe for the first time, across 11 headline shows. Also appearing at
Switzerland’s prestigious hip-hop festival Open Air Frauenfeld, plus Cologne’s Summer Jam,
Hilltop Hoods will cement their status as festival favourites coming home to headline
Australia’s much loved Splendour in the Grass & Spin Off Festival in July 2023.

The legacy of HILLTOP HOODS is undeniable. Their career speaks for itself with ten ARIA
awards, six #1 albums, sold out arena tours, over 60 platinum accreditations and the
achievement of being the #1 most streamed Australian artist on Spotify for two years
