Enz on Campbell Live

Happy to announce that Split Enz will be performing two songs on CAMPBELL LIVE- think it's the last show for the year (New Zealand TV).

Michael Barker is also flying in for the show and yes Neil is back in the country to play with them.

At a guess I'd say it's probably on TV around next Thursday but I'm sure it will get some mentions in the nz press etc.

Original Post
They performed "Poor Boy" and "History Never Repeats" which both sounded great but was sad that there were only two songs in a 30 minute programme. There were interviews with Neil, Tim, Eddie, the new drummer and with Finn Senior. Glimpses of Roundhead studio as well.
"poor boy" & "history never repeats", just as i suspected. it was so great to see them though & the interview with both finn boys & their father was great. i just about lost half my dinner in laughter when mr finn said "we always thought they'd grow out of it" in regards to their music careers
Damm missed it, thank goodness for VOD.

they did indeed sound very pumped up. as soon as they started playing "poor boy" you could see tim was bursting to really let loose. great to see. makes me even more exciting for christchruch '08!

& i enjoyed michael's drumming. i'll be honest, i knew next to nothing about the man previous to the announcement he was touring with the enz (even though they said he'd toured with both finns on their solo tours?). but based on last night, he seemed to slot in just great, sounded pretty well rounded & looked to be enjoying himself?

Thanks for those links, Visitor. The first 2 work just fine across the ditch, but still nothing doing on the other 2 as yet. Given that, what were people's impressions of Michael's drumming with the band?


To me, The Enz sounded like they had never been away, and the new drummer sounds GR8.

There is mention of a gig at Vector, in the first interview, i assume they meen in March. Confused

All links working now, plus the Mr Finn (snr) interview.

Earthquake what earthquake, but it was felt quite strong in Gisborne. Frowner

Yeah, I heard that last night. Got to be ... just seems Campbell's forgotten about the rest of the country, well Christchurch and Wellington anyway.
He also mentioned that it was the first time SE had played together since the 2000 concert. Has he forgotten about the small gathering (similar to his) that played on Holmes about 5 years ago. Ooops, can't be mentioning the other TV network now can we. :-)

*chuckles* Too true, that he can't do! One point of curiousity about that 30th anniversary appearance was the absence of Nigel, who is very much part of the "core 5" that has been mentioned at times (come to think of it, wasn't Nigel also absent from the 20th Anniversary performance at the Wynyard Tavern?). Makes you wonder how the guys themselves feel about playing in the various different manifestations, does it feel like the same band or not? That, however, is probably another topic!

Speaking of TVNZ, forgive me if this has been posted before from Close-Up Feb 1 2006 talking about the Oz 2006 tour interview.

Hope the link works for our international members.
