James Reyne Has One Powerhouse of a Red Hot Summer Setlist

by Paul Cashmere on January 6, 2020

in News,Noise Pro

James Reyne presented an all-new powerhouse of a setlist for his first Red Hot Summer show for 2020.

Red Hot Summer premiered in Bendigo, Victoria on 4 January. Reyne only six weeks earlier had performed for Duane McDonald’s “other child” One Electric Day. For Red Hot Summer, the setlist was fed steroids.

Reyne’s One Electric Day took a warm-up to get going after James’ decided to open with the lesser known moderately paced ‘I Can’t Help Myself’. Red Hot Summer cranked with ‘The Boys Light Up’ and the momentum never waned.

James Reyne fed Bendigo an 11 song set of 11 hits in a row. It was all killer, no filler. A double dose of his iconic 1980 Australian Crawl album ‘The Boys Light Up’ was bookended with a triple play of the equally iconic Crawl ’81 release ‘Sirocco’.

James Reyne is one of those rare Australian icons where you lose track of the number of hits. Australian Crawl had a short innings. They were just four albums in five years with all the hits on the first three.

His solo career spans 35 years and the three solo songs for Red Hot Summer, ‘Slave’, ‘Hammerhead’ and ‘Motors Too Fast’ were all Top 10 hits in their day.

The magic of Red Hot Summer is the number of Australian Rock Classics you are fed over a seven hour period. James Reyne gave Bendigo a sample of Oz Rock Classics.

Consider he was sandwiched between The Angels and Hunters & Collectors. That was four hours of Australian rock just at the end of the day. We had already passed the dozen hits mark with Boom Crash Opera, Killing Heidi and Baby Animals. The rest was just history.
