Crowded House has been confirmed as one of the headline acts Australia's Live Earth concert, according to industry sources close to the band.

The newly reformed New Zealand supergroup would definitely join Wolfmother and the John Butler Trio at the concert, the source said.


Other rumoured acts include Missy Higgins, resurgent Novocastrians Silverchair and singer-turned-politician Peter Garrett.
A confirmed list of acts for the Australian version of the concert, which aims to promote environmental awareness, was supposed to be announced on Monday next week.

But a publicist for the event confirmed official announcements would now be delayed until May.

Acts for the New York and London events were announced earlier this week.

The Police, Kanye West and Bon Jovi will perform at the New York event, while in London the Beastie Boys, Madonna and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers are the headline acts.

The concerts will mark the beginning of the SOS (Save Our Selves) campaign, which aims to raise environmental awareness across the globe.

Organisers hope more than two billion people will see the events, which will be broadcast on 120 networks around the world and streamed live on the internet.

ninemsn will be streaming the concerts in Australia



Would this be perfect timing for a fan club gig or what



PLEASE Mr. Green to your sources concur

Now to wiat and Hope

The stars look so different from here

oh poo.....

i've got my bloody prac that week....

hmmmmm i could just go for the weekend....

off to virginblue website i goooooooooo

Thanks for you quick response Smiler

where on earth (well sydney) are they going to hold it in the middle of july???

any closed top stadiums?? does aussie stadium close up???

me thinks the SCG would be more like a mud wrestling gig than a concert heheheheh
OMG!!!
After travelling through what seemed to be a dark endless tunnel, and waiting for ANY word of when Crowdie would return to their former homeland, PLEASE tell me that at least us Aussies can see a glimpse of daylight. Please let this be true! Big Grin Even if some of us have to use the 'streaming' method to experience it. Wink

Paging Peter Green... we need some CONFIRMATION here please. Smiler

It certainly looks like you just might get your wish there lee rutle. Smiler I've just been to the Live Earth homepage and it appears there will be a webcast of the US concerts. (the wide TV screen icon doesn't appear on any other of the info pages at this stage... only the US Frowner)
Hopefully the Sydney Concert gets the same treament. Smiler
I just can't contain myself, I'm going to have to say it again!
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
MIDNIGHT OIL AND CROWDED HOUSE AT THE SAME GIG
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
I second that Greatfox! Wink

I've seen both bands in the past and simply cannot believe that I might have that opportunity again.

I wouldn't miss this for the world......what an amazing day it's going to be! I'd love to go ahead and get organised now but I guess I'll have to wait until it all becomes *official*.

Ahhhhh......to have the Crowdies back in Australia!

Thats it!!!!!! Smiler

I cant believe I'm saying this.....but I dont think I will be going to the concert. *hides* I'm not a great fan of some of the line up acts, and CH wont be playing a whole set will they? Maybe just 5 or so songs?
Money is a bit tight, and I am definately saving up to get to one or more of their concerts in Sydney or Newcastle.
I will be patient!!! Wink
I was thinking that today. Much as I love my Crowdies, I'm not going to go to the expense and effort of flying to Sydney just to see them play for half an hour (if that) at such a massive venue, with no chance of getting remotely near the stage, and having to suffer through other bands that I wouldn't pay to see in a million years. I'm holding out for some normal type gigs.
yeah, I agree Mrs Horse Pants. I was initially excited but lets face it, my days of big events like this are long done. I would much rather spend my money on a CH gig where I can see them in relative comfort and without being squished. Being very short & very vision impaired doesn't mix well with big stadium events either Smiler

and Perfectchord, CH & Oils also teamed up for the earthquake relief concert in Newcastle in 1990. In fact, Oils were top billing for that & CH second. It'll be interesting to see how it goes this time around...

...it wouldn't exactly be in keeping with the intended ethos of the event either!
