Crowded House celebrated their homecoming Melbourne show with two special guests, Noel Crombie of Split Enz and Mark Seymour of Hunters & Collectors.

Noel and Neil Finn were together in Split Enz from 1977 to 1984. Neil debuted in the Enz on the single ‘I See Red’ and his first Split Enz album was their fourth ‘Frenzy’ in 1979.

Noel came out for ‘Sister Madly’ and played some killer Spoons while Mark Seymour, brother of Crowded House bass Nick Seymour did his Hunters classic ‘Throw Your Arms Around Me’.

Crowded House formed in Melbourne in 1985. Neil’s sons and now members of the band Liam and Elroy, were both born in Melbourne.

Neil wrote most of the Crowded House hits in Melbourne. ‘Four Seasons In One Day’ is about Melbourne weather, but tonight’s show was special because it boosted property prices in the city. Neil gave shout-outs to his old houses where the songs were written, Shirley Grove in East St Kilda, Osborne St, South Yarra and 95 Hawthorn Rd, Caulfield were given a shoutout as was Lower Templestowe later when Mark Seymour came out of outed the place where he wrote ‘Throw Your Arms Around Me’.

Crowded House are one of Australia’s greatest live acts (but don’t tell ARIA that. Until recently ARIA didn’t even know they were an Australian band listing them as New Zealand).
