The splendour of Splendour
is seemingly neverending, with The Hilltop Hoods
and Missy Higgins
adding an extensive list of sideshow dates to the mix.
It’s been a while (five years in fact) since her last national tour, but Missy Higgins has made a comeback of sorts with the release of single ‘Unashamed Desire’ from new album The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle
, a spot on the Splendour in the Grass bill and now a hefty dose of sideshows. Joining her on the ride will be singer-songwriter Butterfly Boucher.
The Hilltop Hoods will be amping themselves (and us) up with a series of sideshow dates in the lead up to the festival, followed by a national tour of new album Drinking From The Sun
that sees them play in capital cities and at regional venues. The full tour will feature Horrorshow and Briggs in the supporting slot.
