Tim Finn Digs Deep For Solo Show In Sydney

in News

Tim Finn performed a one-off show for Sydney on 30 March with a few surprises.

As far as we know, the opening track The Choral Sea’ from the ‘True Colours’ album has maybe only been played once perform. It was certainly played by Split Enz at a 1980 concert in Amsterdam (and unlikely a few more times in that era). For Aussie fans, its unlikely the ‘True Colours’ instrumental closer was ever performed before in Australia.

‘She Got Body She Got Soul’ from 1979’s ‘Frenzy has surfaced just a handful of times before mostly around 2009 to 2011. Another known performance was in Los Angeles for KCRW by the Finn Brothers.

Tim’s daughter Elliot Finn took lead vocals for the Crowded House song ‘All I Now’ and the first verse of Split Enz ‘Nobody Takes Me Seriously’.

The show at the Factory Theatre in Sydney was Tim’s first live performance since completing his ‘The Lives and Times of Tim Finn’ tour in Auckland in 23 September, 2023. He performed in Melbourne on 13 September 2023. Check out the Noise11 review here.

I could go to a James Taylor show just for the stories. The man is a part of music history and is still around to tell the tales of how it all began. Like, for instance, being the first artist signed to Apple Records. James “auditioned” for Apple with his song ‘Something In The Way She Moves’. "Paul went away and started the label and George went away and wrote the song”, he said.
