The Frontier Touring Company is delighted to announce the news that Crowded House fans across Australia and New Zealand have been waiting for…. Crowded House are coming home!

After months of tantalizing us with news of US and UK dates, an appearance on Live Earth, and a sold-out show at Melbourne’s Corner Hotel, Neil Finn, Nick Seymour, Mark Hart and new recruit Matt Sherrod have announced a major arena headline tour of our shores for October/ November.

Dates are confirmed for Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, ensuring that Crowded House fans across both nations are well catered for.

With Crowded House’s much anticipated new single ‘Don’t Stop Now’ on the air waves and their album Time On Earth (EMI) due out on July 2 in both nations, fans will have an exciting new selection of songs to enjoy before the band hits the stage late this year. Their tour promises new hits plus the songs that have made Crowded House a much loved household name.

With a career that spanned more than a decade the first time around, there is no shortage of back catalogue for the band to choose from. Songs ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’, ‘Something So Strong’, ‘Better Be Home Soon’ and ‘Weather With You’ are just a few of the hits that have become so much more than just 80s and 90s chart-toppers. Arguably Crowded House produced songs that are now fundamental to the cultural landscape of both New Zealand and Australia, a fact that is illustrated by the band’s incredibly broad appeal.

In Australia, award-winning local band Augie March will support Crowded House on this tour. Augie March have long been favourites of the Australian public. The band had major success with their recent release Moo, You Bloody Choir which yielded the beautiful “One Crowded Hour”. The song was a huge hit on commercial radio and took out the Number 1 position on this year’s Triple J Hottest 100. It also won a prestigious APRA award for Song of the Year. With an extensive and impressive back catalogue and a finely tuned live show, Augie March are not to be missed.

In New Zealand, reforming band Supergroove will support Crowded House. The band is looking forward to getting back on-stage:

“The Crowded House tour is a welcome opportunity for us to catch up and spend time together as a band. At this point we're taking things very slowly but may consider future plans at a later date. We would like to thank the many people who supported us in the past, and who expressed a desire to see us reform during the intervening years. We look forward to blasting the cobwebs off the Supergroove crypt and hope the spectacle will be enjoyed by all. It lives...”

Popular local five-piece Pluto will open the New Zealand shows. With a new album in-stores now and a true rock ‘n’ roll sound, this quintet will be the perfect opener for the tour.

Tickets to Crowded House’s ‘Time On Earth’ tour of Australia & New Zealand are on sale from Friday 6 July.

SECOND & FINAL CONCERTS

ADDED IN PERTH & SYDNEY

Fresh from their acclaimed performance at Live Earth, Crowded House have confirmed that fans in Perth and Sydney will have one last chance to score concert tickets to Crowded House’s Time On Earth tour with the addition of second and final concerts for both cities.

New dates have been added to meet demand after the original concerts sold out in a matter of hours.

The new Sydney concert will take place on Tuesday 06 November at Sydney Entertainment Centre while the Perth concert will take place on Saturday 17 November at Supreme Court Gardens.

Tickets to both new shows will go on sale on Thursday 12 July at 9:00am local time.

Crowded House’s Time On Earth tour went on sale last Friday and was an instant success. Their Melbourne concert sold out in less than an hour, while Perth and Sydney followed suit shortly after.

A second Melbourne concert is now on sale and selling fast and the Brisbane and Adelaide concerts still have some tickets up for grabs.

With special guests Augie March joining Crowded House on the Australian leg of their tour, this is undoubtedly the must have concert ticket this summer.

Tickets to the new Sydney and Perth concerts are on sale from 9:00am Thursday 12 July.
