In a statement, Neil Finn and Nick Seymour jointly said, “Since our formation in Melbourne and our first album release in 1986 we have enjoyed a special relationship with Australia, one that has strengthened and endured over the years. We feel truly blessed that our songs have become a valued part of people’s lives across generations. As a result, our affinity with fans and the music community here is unique and one we hold very close. We are delighted and honoured to accept the invitation to be inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame.”

Dan Rosen of ARIA said, “On behalf of the ARIA Board, it is a great honour to announce that Crowded House will be inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame at the 2016 ARIA Awards Presented By Telstra.

What a thrill that our first ever ARIA Award winner will now be inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame as part of our 30-year celebrations.”
