Crowded House To Perform Encore Shows At Sydney Opera House

Crowded House will return to the steps of the Sydney Opera House in November to mark the 20th anniversary of their iconic Farewell show in 1996.

Two dates have been locked in within days of the 20th anniversary.

“I am excited to announce two ‘Encore’ performances on the forecourt of the Sydney Opera House,” Nick Seymour said in a statement. “The shows will mark the 20th anniversary of our breakup concert. ‘Proper order!’ I say, as being at the top of our game, I didn’t want to break up in the first place! I’ve come to realise ‘the top of our game’ is whenever we get together so please join us for a fuck off sing-song, an off-piste jam session, a toast to absent friends and NO RAIN.”

Crowded House will be inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in November and their catalogue will be reissued in all formats. “We are thrilled all seven of our albums are about to be reissued in all formats including vinyl, each one accompanied by a rich trove of rarities including writing demos and other unreleased musical curiosities, as well as new original artwork from my dear friend Nick Seymour,” said Neil Finn. “This has been many years in the making with much of the exhaustive listening, editing and remixing being done by the keeper of knowledge Jeremy Ansell in Auckland. It has been a labour of love for us and our mission all along was making a superlative quality, definitive document of Crowded House’s unique history for all the fans who have given us their affection over the years.

Crowded House dates

November 25 and 26, Sydney, Opera House Forecourt

Tickets on sale Monday, September 26.
