Split Enz returns with a vengeance

Recommended Posts

Neil Finn told the 10,000-plus crowd "it feels right" and the crowd undoubtedly agreed as Split Enz launched their reunion tour in Brisbane last night.

It was a triumphant return to the stage for the famous Kiwi band, who showed they had lost none of their theatrical flair or musicianship since their heyday in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Band members Tim and Neil Finn, Eddie Rayner, Noel Crombie, Nigel Griggs and Malcolm Green - who were together for the True Colours album of 1980 that established their greatness - thrilled the Queensland crowd, who chanted for and received two encores.

All the band's famous hits - including I Got You, Six Months In A Leaky Boat and One Step Ahead - were thumped out in rousing style.

Split Enz play the first of two concerts in Sydney tonight, before heading to Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. The Finn brothers have expressed the hope of playing also in New Zealand, but no dates have been set.

      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
