The Weekend Australian - Review - - Music Reviews - Iain Shed­den

It has been a week cram-packed with cel­e­bra­tion in the lo­cal mu­sic in­dus­try this week, not least at the ARIA awards on Wed­nes­day night when Flume, Sia and King Giz­zard and the Lizard Wiz­ard were just some of the names up in lights for their achieve­ments in the past year. It’s an even big­ger week for Crowded House, which is in the mid­dle of a four-night re­turn to per­form­ing — on the fore­court of Syd­ney Opera House, to cel­e­brate the band’s in­duc­tion into the ARIA Hall of Fame on Wed­nes­day, and the 20th an­niver­sary of its Farewell to the World show at the Opera House. The ques­tion now is whether this run of shows will prompt more dates and per­haps even a new Crowdies al­bum at some point. Lead singer Neil Finn isn’t giv­ing much away, how­ever, other than to say that the door hasn’t closed com­pletely on that part of his ca­reer. What we can ex­pect is a new Finn solo al­bum next year.
