Crowded House tour in Australia postponed after Neil Finn catches Covid | Music

Crowded House frontman Neil Finn has tested positive for Covid-19, delaying the remainder of the band’s Australian tour just hours before their next show.

The 63-year-old New Zealand singer said she was “absolutely devastated”, after testing positive on Monday morning.

“In very difficult conditions for this tour, we stayed in our bubble and observed very strict protocols but somehow the virus still got through,” said Finn.

“I am relieved to have only mild symptoms at this stage and grateful for the protection my triple vaccination provides.

“I’m very sorry to disappoint our fans this week, but rest assured we’ll be back to make a good one.”

The band’s management confirmed the news on Tuesday morning, the same day Crowded House was scheduled to perform at Hobart’s MyState Bank Arena. The last four shows on their national tour, their first Australian tour in more than 10 years, have now been postponed.

Crowded House appeared at Bluesfest in Byron Bay on Sunday night, playing main stage after John Butler.

All existing ticket holders will be notified of the rescheduled show at a later date. Recent shows are Hobart on Tuesday, Royal Theater Canberra on April 21, and A Day on the Green in Geelong on April 23 and Hunter Valley on April 24.
