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.”
