Neil Finn and Paul Kelly - Kings Park Perth

This event has passed!

Two of Australasia’s greatest singer songwriters Neil Finn and Paul Kelly, will bring their iconic songs on tour in February and March 2013.

Finn and Kelly will share the stage throughout as members of the one band, singing and playing together a selection from their rich and varied songbooks.

The concerts will be a family affair, with the line up to include Elroy Finn on drums and Dan Kelly on guitars.

Tickets will go on sale at 9am on Friday November 16 through Ticketmaster.

Neil Finn said, “Paul and I have discussed doing a tour together since I thrashed him on my tennis court in St Kilda in ’93. Good things take time and the only problem we have is deciding which songs to leave out. Can’t wait.”

Paul Kelly said, “Neil has had good form over a long period of time – songwriting, singing and stuff – but his backhand still needs a lot of work.”

Live Nation’s President & CEO Michael Coppel said, “Live Nation is thrilled to be presenting two icons of Australasian music, marking the first of many tours by local artists which we plan to promote.”

Neil Finn’s songbook delivers some of Australia’s favourite musical moments from Crowded House, Split Enz, through to Finn Brothers and two solo albums. ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’, ‘Something So Strong’, ‘Better Be Home Soon’, ‘Weather With You’, ‘Four Seasons In One Day’, ‘I got You’, Message to My Girl’, to name a few of the songs. Neil is currently writing and recording a new solo album, the first in over ten years, with Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, MGMT, Mercury Rev) which is due for release in late 2013.

Paul Kelly’s highly acclaimed new album ‘Spring and Fall’ was released in October, and follows eighteen studio albums as well as several film soundtracks (including Lantana and the 2006 Cannes Film Festival highlight, Jindabyne) and two live albums, in an influential career spanning more than thirty years. Kelly’s hit songs include the likes of ‘Before Too Long’, ‘Darling It Hurts’, ‘Dumb Things’, ‘To Her Door’ and ‘How To Make Gravy’.

Special guest in Perth will be fellow singer songwriter Lisa Mitchell, who released her second album ‘Bless This Mess’ in October following her platinum selling debut album ‘Wonder’. Mitchell’s debut EP ‘Said One To The Other’ was a #1 hit in Australia.
