It's been more than a decade in the making...
After rescheduling their huge national tour, Crowded House are going one better – adding a stack of new dates to the October/November run.
The tour will continue the celebrations of the band’s ARIA Award winning album Dreamers Are Waiting – which began earlier this year – and will see the band take to stages around the country, kicking off in Darwin before wrapping up the tour in Perth at the end of November.
Crowded House recently unveiled a new lineup featuring founding members Neil Finn and Nick Seymour, alongside producer and keyboardist Mitchell Froom, guitarist and singer Liam Finn, and drummer Elroy Finn. It is only the band’s third Australian tour during the last 15 years.
The band’s April Dreamers Are Waiting Australian tour dates played to full houses, rapturous audiences, and widespread critical acclaim, including a star turn at Bluesfest during Easter.

Formed in Melbourne in 1985 out the ashes of New Zealand’s Split Enz by Neil Finn, Paul Hester, and Nick Seymour, Crowded House’s self-titled debut album went on to global success thanks to international hits like ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’ and ‘Something So Strong’. Those songs and many that followed are still resonating with audiences today – the former in particular being one of the most covered songs of the last two decades.
The band’s first incarnation lasted from 1985 through 1995, produced four studio albums, and enjoyed success worldwide. This lineup said farewell to the world on the steps of the Sydney Opera House in 1996 with a now legendary performance in front of 150,000 people.
In 2005, following the tragic death of founding member Paul Hester, Neil and Nick felt compelled to bring Crowded House back. With a fresh lineup and a handful of new albums in hand, in 2016 Crowded House was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame.
Now, album number seven, Dreamers Are Waiting adds another brilliant chapter to the everlasting Crowded House story.

Get to know Ticketmaster’s Smart Queue
If you aren’t familiar with Smart Queue, it is Ticketmaster’s way of creating a clear and fair process for thousands of fans to buy tickets in a short space of time. Fans enter the virtual Waiting Room prior to onsale time before joining the Smart Queue – which acts as a ‘virtual line’, helping us protect you and your tickets in a more effective way.
The time you join the Waiting Room does not determine your place in the Smart Queue, so we recommend joining at least 10 minutes prior to the event going on sale but there is no need to rush.
When the sale begins, the Smart Queue will open and everyone in the Waiting Room is given a place in line. Those who did not join the Waiting Room will be placed at the end of the line.
- Sign in to your Ticketmaster account at least 10 minutes before joining the Waiting Room. This will speed up your purchase later.
- Confirm you have a valid form of payment in your account with current email and billing information. This will make checkout a breeze.
- Resist the urge to refresh. Your page will automatically refresh when you enter the Smart Queue.
- Keep an eye on the time! When it’s your turn, your spot will be held for 10 minutes to begin shopping.
- Just like before, tickets are always based on availability, demand, and are not guaranteed.
