With the 17 November show at Sydney Opera Housenow completely sold out we are pleased to announcea third and final performance ofThey Will Have Their Wayin Sydney on Friday 18 November.
The enduring legacy and massive appeal of Tim and Neil Finn was celebrated with two smash hit albums; 2005’s She Will Have Her Way, and 2010’s He Will Have His Way. Now it’s time for the boys and girls to perform together on They Will Have Their Way: The Songs of Tim & Neil Finn National Tour this November.
They Will Have Their Way will give audiences the chance to experience the timeless work of the Finn brothers, both lovingly recreated and reinterpreted by a brilliant line-up of Australian artists. She Will Have Her Way’sSarah Blasko, Clare Bowditch, Sally Seltmann and Holly Throsby will join their male counterparts Paul Dempsey, Alexander Gow(Oh Mercy) and Lior, each artist bringing their unique musical perspective to classics from the Finn brothers’ extraordinary catalogue.
The They Will Have Their Way National Tour follows the incredible success of the two albums, which have sold over 400,000 copies in Australia and New Zealand, been hailed unanimously by critics, achieved ARIA nominations, and sold strongly around the globe. Most recently, Boy & Bear's stunning reinvention of the Crowded House classic 'Fall At Your Feet' placed at # 5 on Triple J's prestigious publicly-voted Hottest 100 poll for 2010.
“I think Tim and Neil Finn have written so many great songs, and they are usually these perfectly modest songs that grow on you with time. I have lots of memories where their songs are the sound track.” SALLY SELTMANN
“I remember listening to Crowded House when I was in primary school. My best friend lived across the street and we had a cassette we'd play at her house or in the car when our mothers would drive us places and we'd sing along. When I was in high school she put 'Not The Girl You Think You Are' on a mix tape for me because it was her new favourite. I think the chord progression is beautiful. I like the way it lifts up as the verses go on. I sing it differently from Neil Finn. But I sing it the way I hear it in my head.” HOLLY THROSBY
Through Split Enz to Crowded House, solo albums and The Finn Brothers recordings, Tim and Neil Finn’s music continues to affect people from all generations, their songs woven into the fabric of Australian life. From the cerebral to the surreal, the delicate to the chaotic, the jovial to the soulfully tortured, the artistry of the Finn brothers’ work shines through their incomparable song catalogue. Both brothers have consistently proven their knack for crafting high-quality songs that combine irresistible melodies with meticulous lyrical detail, creating the soundtrack to our lives.
Experiencing the musical magic of the Finn brothers, interpreted by the cream of Australia’s best young and emerging artists, will surely be an unmissable event.
