Crowded House announce 2022 Australian tour

It's been more than a decade in the making...

This news has been 12 years in the making – rock icons Crowded House have announced a huge national tour for April 2022.

The tour will celebrate the band’s ARIA Award winning album Dreamers Are Waiting and will see the band take to stages around the country, kicking off in Perth before wrapping up the tour with a very special set at Bluesfest.

Alongside a much celebrated New Zealand tour earlier this year, Crowded House also 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.

Crowded House – Love Isn’t Hard At All

Special guests on all capital city dates are acclaimed rock band Middle Kids, fresh from picking up the 2021 ARIA Award for Best Rock Album for Today We’re The Greatest. At Centennial Vineyards’ A Day On The Green winery show, Crowded House will be joined by special guests, Teskey Brothers.

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.

Make sure you have a My Ticketmaster account

Get the basics covered before tickets go on sale by logging in and checking your Ticketmaster account ahead of time. If you don’t have a Ticketmaster Account then make sure you sign up in advance – Ticketmaster.com.au.

Sign into your My Ticketmaster account ahead of time

Remember to triple check your passwords, account information, and billing information are all filled in correctly in advance, that way you’re not facing any last-minute account updates when trying to process your order.

Keep your options open with ‘Best Available’

Save time by searching “Best Available,” which scans all sections fast – it’s quicker than searching sections one at a time.

Keep an eye on the clock

There will be a time limit applied to all transactions as they’re progressed through the ticket purchasing stages. Remember to keep an eye on the timer on your screen and move through the processing pages as quickly as possible (this is even easier when you’ve completed the account set-up stage we mentioned above).

Don’t refresh your screen

Stick to one window while you’re in the Waiting Room and when you’re being pushed through the Smart Queue and always resist the urge to refresh.

Hitting the refresh button means you’ll lose your place in the queue and, as frustrating as it can get, patience is the only way to win this game. Ticketmaster is equipped with sophisticated systems that are designed to manage and process ticket purchases as quickly as possible. The queuing system that appears on your screen will place you at the front of the line as soon as possible.

Remember: there are a lot of fans

We’re expecting this to be a very popular event. When a popular event goes on sale there are hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of customers all attempting to purchase tickets at the same time. Tickets are sold as long as seats are available, and when an act is as popular as Crowded House, sometimes they go very quickly.

Be sure to follow the above tips to ensure you have the best chance of snapping up some tickets.

Crowded House will take their seventh studio album Dreamers Are Waiting to Australian stages in April 2022. Tickets go on sale to the general public from Friday 10 December 2021 @ 12pm AEDT via Ticketmaster.com.au.
