Hey! Hello! @ Hard Rock Hell 2016
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.”

Automatic Love – New Single & Video Out Now
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
Automatic Love is available to download from iTunes, Amazon and to stream from Spotify.
“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%.”
Automatic Love on Classic Rock Cover CD
The mighty ‘Automatic Love’ features on the new Classic Rock cover CD, previewing 2016, and the band are tipped for great things in 2016.
Well done gang, let’s do ’em proud!

It is with regret that Hey! Hello! have to announce the postponement of the upcoming Hey! Hello! UK tour, and Ginger Wildheart’s birthday show on December 17th.
The shows have been postponed due to Ginger being clinically diagnosed with acute depression and the shows are currently being rescheduled for 2016.
The band offer their “sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused to anyone who was intending to travel to these December shows.” and Ginger’s official statement reads…
‘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.
The postponed London show at the O2 Forum on December 17th has been rescheduled as ‘The Ginger Wildheart Show’ at the same venue on April 1st 2016 and tickets are available from Ticketmaster.
