If you are a Crowded House fan left disappointed after last week's tour rescheduling, today's news should be welcome.
After the Prime Minister's announcement today of alert level changes from Sunday, Crowded House's "To The Island" tour has been rescheduled.
The tour starts in Christchurch next week.
Last week's change in Covid-19 alert levels meant some tour dates were rescheduled.
The Hamilton and two Napier shows that were due for the week starting March 1 have now been scheduled for late March.
Concerts in Nelson and Palmerston North have also been rescheduled because of the changed production logistics required to reroute the tour.
Current ticketholders are encouraged to retain their tickets, but those who cannot attend the new tour dates will receive a full refund.
Crowded House will now be joined with Indie rock band The Beth's for the Queenstown and Napier shows.
Singer/songwriter Reb Fountain completes the line-up, excluding Napier.
The band was expected to embark on a worldwide tour this year, but the coronavirus pandemic meant a nationwide tour was the only possible option.
The tour is the first time the band have played in New Zealand since a one-off gig at Auckland's Town Hall in 2010. They did play a small series of anniversary shows on the steps of the Sydney Opera House in 2016. but disappointingly didn't make it across the ditch to celebrate with fans here.
Just a week out from their To The Island New Zealand Tour, Neil Finn told Music 101's Charlotte Ryan how the band was now "poised to do a tour of New Zealand and he is optimistic".
