It is well documented that on November 24, 1996, Crowded House
said Farewell to the World
with a celebrated concert on the steps of the Sydney Opera House that is now regarded as one of the greatest shows ever to be staged on Australian soil.
With the first two “Encore” shows now officially sold out it is with great pleasure that Crowded House announce a third “Encore” concert on Thursday, November 24, exactly twenty years to the day of the now iconic Farewell to the World.
NSW Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events Stuart Ayres said:
“It’s been 20 years since Crowded House’s celebrated concert at the Sydney Opera House and we’re thrilled to be welcoming them back for three Sydney exclusive performances at this iconic landmark. The shows will be part of ARIA Week, a program of performances which showcase the best and brightest in the Australian music industry. More than 2500 visitors are expected to travel to Sydney to be part of these unforgettable concerts.”
