SPECIAL GUEST REB FOUNTAIN CONFIRMED

Iconic Kiwi band CROWDED HOUSE have announced that they will tour New Zealand in March 2021 on their “To the Island” tour – news wholeheartedly embraced by the whole country.

Due to overwhelming demand for tickets, a second and final show at Church Road Winery in Napier has been announced for Sunday, March 7 and a second and final performance at Auckland’s Spark Arena on Sunday, March 21. Tickets to the newly announced shows will go on sale at 1pm Friday, December 4.

Live Nation members can access pre-sale tickets from 11am Thursday, December 3 until 12pm Friday, December 4.

The first Crowded House performances in Napier and Auckland, and the Palmerston North show have sold out, with only limited ticket availability remaining for all other shows.

In order to accommodate the second Napier show the performance in Nelson at the Trafalgar Centre has been rescheduled to Tuesday 9 March 2021. All existing tickets will remain valid and any patrons unable to attend the new date can obtain a refund from the point of purchase. Refund requests are to be submitted prior to 5pm, Friday 29 January 2021.

Crowded House have just released their first new music in more than a decade with the debut of the single “Whatever You Want” available HERE. The tour and 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. The video can be seen HERE.

Crowded House is also proud to announce multi-instrumentalist, singer songwriter Reb Fountain as special guest on their ‘To the Island’ tour (other than on Sunday March 7 in Napier).

The five-time AMA nominated artist and Silver Scroll finalist has just completed a sold-out 10 date national tour in celebration of her self-titled album ‘Reb Fountain’ recorded at Neil Finn’s Roundhead studios - described as a collection of ‘noir punk-folk songs’.

Reb and Neil first became friends following their collaboration on Finn’s 2017/2018 ‘Out of Silence’ album and tour.
