Tickets will be offered free to iHeartRadio users, followed by a further free ticket offer to 2degrees customers.

Neil Finn is a household name, the king of Kiwi music, an icon and a musician who captures the attention of a wide range of ages and musical tastes and now he is heading down south thanks to iHeartRadio and 2degrees.

All bundled together in a fantastic one and a half hour set, plus support act Bic Runga. Neil will be accompanied by his latest six piece ensemble. The new band (including wife Sharon, Aistair Deverick of the Ruby Suns, Jessee Sheehan, Andrew Everding, Lisa Tomlins of Rhombus and Finn) will perform new material from Finn’s critically acclaimed album ‘Dizzy Heights’ as well as a swag of songs from his vast retrospective catalogue - including Crowded House, Split Enz, Finn Brothers and his own solo works.
