Finns at the Zoo
Auckland Zoo is set to host another amazing concert this summer when Tim, Neil and Liam Finn take the rotunda stage to play a selection of their combined catalogues of songs, old and new.
The three Finns have never performed together at an event quite like this and the trio are clearly excited at the prospect.
“Neil, Liam and myself look forward to playing each others’ well known songs in the Summer twilight when all the animals stir and leave their shelter, turn to each other and perform their rites. We will comb through the catalogues of Split Enz, Crowded House, Finn Brothers and Liam’s solo work to find the right tunes for the occasion. A rare gathering of brothers, uncles, cousins and crocodiles.” says Tim.
And Neil concurs. “It’s a rare and wonderful thing to perform on stage with other songwriters you deeply admire and respect even more special when they happen to be closest family. What a good thought ! We’ll be together on a summer evening, prancing and cavorting, adding some sweet Finn harmonies to the evening chorus at the zoo” .
When asked, Liam Finn agrees that this show is one in a million. “I have grown up playing Dad and Tim’s songs which has always been fun and a big part of what made me the me the musician I am today. I am especially excited to get to perform and hear my songs with both of their voices and flourishes. This will be a night at the zoo to remember!”
The Auckland Zoo concert is a child friendly environment. Gates open at 5pm with an approximate show time of 7.00pm
