Band releases first new music in over a decade
Crowded House has announced that they will tour New Zealand in March 2021 on the To the Island Tour. The news comes as the band releases its first new music in more than a decade with the debut of the single “Whatever You Want.” The tour and new music feature founding members Neil Finn and Nick Seymour along with producer and keyboardist Mitchell Froom, guitarist and singer Liam Finn and drummer Elroy Finn.
The video for “Whatever You Want” stars the charismatic and hugely talented indie artist Mac DeMarco making his acting debut.
“We are thrilled and highly energised to be touring NZ in March. The shows will be a joyous occasion for us, with all the songs from our history that still resonate, some new music to unveil and our home crowds to share all that with…feeling truly blessed,” Finn shares.
Live Nation is thrilled to confirm that New Zealand will play host to the internationally revered band on a ten date national tour throughout March 2021. There are currently no restrictions on mass gatherings, social distancing or mask protocols in New Zealand.
Venue, Ticketmaster and Live Nation pre-sales are Wednesday, November 4th at 11 am local time through Thursday, November 5th at 11 am local time. General on sale is Thursday, November 5th at noon local via Live Nation and Ticketmaster.
Vodafone customers can be among the first to secure tickets during the Vodafone pre-sale starting Monday, November 2 at 10 am until Wednesday, November 4th at 10 am.
Following Neil Finn’s surprise star turn and an extremely successful world tour with Fleetwood Mac, Finn’s and Nick Seymour are energized and inspired to begin a new chapter in the Crowded House story. A new generation has grown up and connected with their songs and will now get to experience the band live as they perform legendary anthems from the bands 35-year career, along with fresh new music.
