Neil Finn confirms Crowded House will perform at Glastonbury 2022

Rock News 08/06/2021

It's bloody good to hear festivals around the world are starting to gear back up, after a year-plus forced hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Crowded House frontman Neil Finn confirmed that the kiwi rockers will be returning to the iconic Glastonbury Festival in 2022.

Appearing on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch over the weekend, Finn shared that the band were originally going to perform this year, but touring plans were pushed back due the 'rona cocking everything up for everyone.

“We’ve had a tour booked for the last two summers, which is actually sold out and is now intact and coming next June,” said Finn. 

We’ve transferred everything, including a Glastonbury appearance and some Roundhouse shows in London so yeah, we are coming, as soon as we possibly can, it’s taken two years once we get there…

How bloody good would it be to see these kiwi rock icons take the stage at one of the biggest festivals in the world - especially the first one back after the pandemic.

The last time they played at Glasto was in 2008, where they had a good little moment where they convinced security guards to stop watching the crowd and to turn around to watch them perform.

"Turn around, nothing bad will happen!"

You been to Glasto? If you haven't, add it to your bucket list - it's well worth the visit. Especially for moments like this.
