Crowded House have announced its tour dates after being forced to postpone its Geelong show last month.

The band was due to play a Day on the Green show at Mt Duneed Estate on Saturday, April 23, supported by Angus and Julia Stone and The Waifs, but was forced to cancel less than a week out when front man Neil Finn tested positive for COVID-19.

The ban this week announced the Mt Duneed Estate show would be rescheduled for Saturday, November 19.

“We are very pleased to announce rescheduled shows in Australia for the ones we lost through COVID in April,” the band said.

“We play in the beautiful Kings Park Perth, Geelong, Hobart and Hunter Valley and will be thrilled to see you good people who bought tickets the first time.

“Should these new dates not be possible for some of you to attend we hope the process of refunds is straightforward and look forward to seeing you next time.

“The show must go on.”

Angus and Julia Stone and The Waifs will remain as the supporting acts.

People who had already bought tickets for the April show will not need to exchange them, while refunds will be available from point of purchase for those who are unable to attend the rescheduled dates.

The rescheduled show will be the first in the region for Crowded House’s new line up, which was unveiled last year.

The band now features founding members Neil Finn and Nick Seymour, along with producer and keyboardist Mitchell Froom, guitarist and singer Liam Finn and drummer Elroy Finn.

Geelong will be the second last stop on the band’s Australian Dreamers Are Waiting tour.

The band will tour Europe and the United States between June and October before returning for the rescheduled show.
