Dynamic four-piece HOT CHELLE RAE , winners of the 2011 American Music Award for Best New Artist, make a triumphant return to Australian shores this October. The band announced themselves as a force to be reckoned with as avid audiences soaked up their special guest performances throughout Taylor Swift’s sold-out national tour earlier this year. This time Hot Chelle Rae bring with them one of the UK’s hottest new talents, special guest Cher Lloyd .
Tickets for Hot Chelle Rae’s ‘Whatever World Tour’, with special guest Cher Lloyd, go on sale Friday July 6. For further ticketing and pre-sale details, go to www.livenation.com.au.
Hot Chelle Rae – lead vocalist and guitarist Ryan Keith Follese, guitarist Nash Overstreet, drummer Jamie Follese, and bassist Ian Keaggy – released their stellar 2009 debut ‘Lovesick Electric’, an album which introduced them into the market as ones to watch, featuring the energetic ‘I Like to Dance’ and ballad ‘Bleed’.
In 2011 the band followed up with their highly anticipated and hugely successful sophomore album ‘Whatever’. Playful, stylish and radio friendly, it features the highly infectious, ARIA triple-platinum smash hit ‘Tonight Tonight’ and double-platinum ‘I Like It Like That’. Other album highlights include ‘Why Don’t You Love Me’, with guest vocalist Demi Lovato, finger-snapper ‘Radio’ (with rising rapper Bei Maejor), be-yourself anthem ‘Beautiful Freaks’, and the title track, the “three in the air and you just don’t care” anthem for the now generation ‘Whatever’. ‘Whatever’ will be the third track to be lifted from the album – the video featuring footage shot in Australia during their tour with Taylor Swift.
CHER LLOYD joins Hot Chelle Rae at all shows of their Australian tour. Rapper, singer and songwriter, Cher Lloyd, has emerged as one of London’s freshest young talents. Coming to attention on Britain’s The X-Factor with her version of ‘Turn My Swag On’ followed by a diverse range of songs taking her into the finals. Taken under the wing of Simon Cowell, the confident, versatile vocalist released her debut single ‘Swagger Jagger’ mid-2011 and took it all the way to the top of the UK charts. Locally Cher’s 2011 single release ‘With Ur Love’ featuring Mike Posner, has been well received hitting Gold. Radio is currently lapping up her smash ‘Want U Back’. Cher’s 2011 UK debut album of street-wise pop gems, ‘Sticks & Stones’, currently not released locally, shot to #4 in the UK album charts.
