EVENT POSTPONEMENT

We appreciate everyone holding on to their tickets just a little longer, as we know it’s worth the wait!



The long wait is over for Vika & Linda fans – the iconic duo are heading to HOTA celebrate the release of their new album, The Wait.

The song writing credits for The Wait – seventh studio album for Vika & Linda Bull – read like a who’s who of Australian music royalty: Don Walker, Glenn Richards, Chris Cheney, Bernard Fanning, Kasey Chambers & Brandon Dodd, Ben Salter, Paul Kelly, Neil Murray & Matt Walker, Mick Thomas & Jemma Rowlands, and emerging talent Eva Seymour.

‘It took us three times to make this record, it kept getting delayed,’ says Linda. ‘And we’ve been waiting 19 years to make this record … Waiting for more songs. Waiting for the right opportunity.’

The Wait follows a triumphant 2020 for Vika & Linda, which saw them score their first number one album when their career anthology, ‘Akilotoa, entered the ARIA charts at number one – the first ever number one album by an Australian female duo. Three months later, their gospel collection, Sunday (The Gospel According To Iso), debuted at number two.
