The Piece Hall date is one of only a handful of shows Crowded House are performing in the UK next summer including outdoor dates at Cardiff Castle and Lincoln Castle.
Joining founding members Neil Finn and Nick Seymour in Halifax will be Mitchell Froom, Liam Finn and Elroy Finn.

With a career that spans almost 40 years, Crowded House have enjoyed worldwide success. They have sold more than 15 million albums worldwide and in 2016, the band was inducted into the ARIA – Australian Recording Industry Association – Hall of Fame.

Crowded House have also won several national and international awards including being named International Group of the Year at the BRIT Awards and an MTV Video Music Award.

Crowded House has resounded through eras and generations since the band launched out of Melbourne, Australia back in 1985. Beyond selling over 15 million records worldwide and earning 13 ARIA Awards, a MTV VMA, and a BRIT Award, they have generated billions of streams, consistently sold out tours on multiple continents, notched four #1 albums in Australia, and captivated audiences for nearly four decades. Originally founded by Neil Finn [vocals, guitar, keys, songwriting], Nick Seymour [bass, keys], and the late Paul Hester [drums, vocals], the group’s self-titled debut, Crowded House, went platinum uplifted by iconic smashes “Something So Strong” and “Don’t Dream It’s Over.” Speaking to the impact of the latter, it has been covered by everyone from Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande in a viral performance to The Head & The Heart, among others. It’s no wonder Consequence of Sound christened it “one of the most memorable tunes of the eighties.” Along the way, the group delivered a legendary performance to an audience of over 150,000 on the steps of the Sydney Opera House in 1996, beginning a hiatus.
