Tim Finn said of the upcoming tour via a press release: “After spending 10 years writing songs for musical theater and developing a new opera, I played a one-off open air show to 2000 people in Manly, Australia last year and loved the way. my live band was so tight and focused.”
He continued: “Playing all the parts that belong on the recordings, the right sounds, the right grooves … it made me want to do it again. I made a chronological set list that followed the 40 years. I chose songs that I can still fully inhabit, songs that I never tire of singing. Now I want to take that show across Australia and NZ and go into old venues that are filled with the ghosts of shows past.”
