Having been at Bush Hall only a few weeks previously to see Liam Finn Mat and I were back again last night to see Liam’s Dad and he was just superb. The venue is tiny and there were only 350 tickets available to the public and all of them were snapped up by members of the fan club.
The great thing about Finn is that he is such a natural showman, so easy and relaxed on stage and no two shows are ever the same. Last night with only a piano and acoustic guitar he worked his way through his extensive catalogue. The playlist list quickly went out the window as more and more requests were shouted from the crowd and Finn agreed to songs that he hadn’t played in a while and the audience helped out with the lyrics.
Another great thing that makes Finn so engaging is how he is happy to share the stage with audience members and last night three got the opportunity to go up including one on the piano who brilliant played my favourite Crowded House song, Love you ’til the day i die.
The only disappointment was Finn wasn’t able to raise anyone on Skype which would have been fun to see.
I’m really looking forward to the Crowded House gigs coming up in the summer.
