Hey! Hello! are a last minute addition to the Hard Rock Hell bill, appearing on Sat 12th November
Along with Ginger Wildheart, Hey! Hello! quickly step into the breach following the surprise withdrawal of Glenn Hughes.
Hey! Hello! are due to play at 17.20pm and the Ginger Wildheart Band at 20.45pm.
Hard Rock Hell organisers explained on the event’s official Facebook page: “[There’s] not much we can do when someone pulls their whole European tour … what’s the solution… simple, up the game, so we are pleased to announce that Ginger Wildheart has stepped in at the last minute and will be replacing Glenn Hughes. As an extra, Ginger will also perform an HRH showcase of his new band, Hey! Hello!, over and above the later Ginger Wildheart slot.”
The Hard Rock Hell spokesperson added: “We love Glenn, but at such short notice, we feel Ginger’s last minute contribution will only bump up HRH X to another level.”
Hey! Hello! are seeking a new front-woman – are you the chosen one?

It is with regret that Hey! Hello! have to announce the cancellation of their upcoming April UK tour. The shows have been postponed due to singer Hollis deciding to leave the band on the eve of the tour. Full ticket refunds will be available at point of purchase.
Hey! Hello! offer their sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused to anyone who was intending to travel to these shows and the band’s official statement reads:
“We are bitterly sorry to see our singer leave the band at this point, but we respect her decision and wish her nothing but good luck in the future.
Right now, our main concern is finding a new front person – male or female – to lead our band to world domination. If you have the star quality that Hey! Hello! needs then get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
The world is waiting for you.”
Hey! Hello! also unveil the video for their new single, the adrenaline thrill ride Let’s Get Emotional.
Hey! Hello!’s new single Automatic Love is out now, from the forthcoming album ‘Hey! Hello! Too!’, a pure unadulterated volume driven rock ’n’ roll anthem
“The video is a deliberately stark introduction of the new line up, complete with new vocalist Hollis. We didn’t want anything flash, and preferred to let the music be the main focus.
It’s raw, it’s loud and sounds like the weekend. This is the sound of partying, sex, trouble, fun, hangovers and extreme behaviour of all persuasions, take from that what you will.
We’re bringing rock n roll back in 2016, and you better believe we mean that 100%.”

‘Gutted to have to postpone the Hey! Hello! tour, but the band have been super supportive and I’m very proud to part of this beautiful bunch.
I’m gutted to miss seeing Dirt Box Disco play too, as they’ve recently become my favourite band and I hope they’ll join us for the rescheduled dates in 2016.
But mostly I’ve been blown away by the fans response. I’m very lucky to have such supportive people in my life. Thank you for being so kind with your concern.
We’ll get this beat, and I’ll see you next year when I feel better.
Have a cool yule, y’all.
