This is the New Zealand native’s second tour in the Northern Hemisphere supporting his latest album, One All. He was last in the States over the summer months, packing theatres with Ed Harcourt opening. Just prior to that outing, he released One All – his first studio record in nearly four years.

The disc is titled One Nil outside the States: “Nil” being how Finn’s native New Zealanders pronounce his first name.

At the beginning of this year, Finn sent out a live album and DVD called 7 Worlds Collide. The record features tunes culled from a series of shows in Auckland during 2000 in which Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, guitarist Johnny Marr, Ed O’Brien from Radiohead, and Finn’s brother Tim guested as his band.

Tim and Neil are no strangers to sharing the stage. Neil received his musical start as a guitarist in Tim’s band Split Enz. After Split Enz, well, split, Neil formed Crowded House and enjoyed both critical and commercial international acclaim and success.

At the height of Crowded House’s career, Neil dissolved the band in favor of a solo outing, which proved a risky but good move as he has become a highly regarded solo musician among critics, fans and peers alike.
