Another major tour has been derailed by COVID, with Crowded House postponing the final dates of their Australian tour due to Neil Finn testing positive to COVID-19 yesterday.

The iconic band were scheduled to play four more sold-out shows in Hobart, Canberra, Geelong and Hunter Valley this week as part of their Dreamers Are Waiting Tour.

Currently self-isolating, Finn shared: “I am absolutely crushed to have to postpone the last 4 shows of our Australian tour as I tested positive yesterday morning for Covid. 

“In these very difficult conditions for touring, we were staying in our bubble and observing very strict protocols but somehow the virus still slipped through. 

“I am relieved to be only experiencing mild symptoms at this stage and grateful for the protection that my triple boosted vaccination is providing. 

“I am so sorry to disappoint our fans this coming week, but rest assured we will be back to make good.”

It's expected rescheduled dates, also including the band’s three sold-out Perth shows, will be announced soon.
