Perhaps I wasn't clear enough or you misunderstood me greenlight7-11. I know this news is 100% official from the head of the fan club but I'm merely stating that for some strange reason, the media here in Australia who LOVE Crowded House to bits, have not picked up on this fact and reported it as far as I know. As a result, I have to ask....why?

The story hungry Australian press usually raid that entire website for exclusive information about this band so I am very surprised that while this topic has been discussed extensively in forums, this development hasn't made the newspapers.

The media here ARE actually interested in the band as someone wrote an article a few weeks ago speculating who may fill that role. Now that this news is out and quite frankly, old, I can only assume that perhaps they are waiting for a record company statement which may also include other information such as tour details or press conference comments.

Given Crowded House's stronghold on the public AND the press here, the situation just seems a bit odd. When the reunion announcement was made, there were radio announcements, TV stories and multiple newspaper articles. While I don't expect that kind of reaction now, I would've thought they would still print that story eventually. Time will tell, I guess.

Anyone watch the live webcast of the Crowdies rehearsing?

It was an amazing 2.5 hours of music.

don't dream it's over...

Khanada - I think they are playing here because of the Coachella Music Festival that weekend, so perhaps it's considered a 'warm-up' show.

I believe they mentioned at some point that they would be on tour for about a year, so there should be plenty of North American dates coming up.

I think we might have an extra ticket to the Glass House show. If anyone is interested, let me know. The show is, of course, sold out.

I'm sure they'll make it to other places in North America. I've seen Neil Finn in NYC & The Finn Bros. in Boston, so it's not as if they never venture out of the West coast. Also saw Crowded House in Houston years ago.

No, but perhaps dinner

I think we only own the first one or two CDs. I need to familiarize myself with more stuff. Anyone willing to... um... share?
