Hoodoo Gurus Kick Off A 40th Anniversary Year With Red Hot Summer

When Hoodoo Gurus get back on stage for Red Hot Summer mid January, they’ll be working their way to the 40th anniversary of their first release.

The first Hoodoo Gurus release was the single ‘Leilani’ in October 1982. The song wasn’t a hit but it did lead us directly to the first album ‘Stoneage Romeos’ a few years later in 1984.

2022 will also set up a year for the release of the 10th Hoodoo Gurus album ‘Carry On’. The title track from that album was released in December 2021.

You first chance to see Hoodoo Gurus live in 2022 will be for Red Hot Summer in Mornington on 15 and 16 January.

Hoodoo Gurus managed a few Red Hot Summers in 2021. The setlist covers all 40 years.
