Anyone who watched MuchMusic in Canada through the 80s remembers the constant appearances of Neil, Nick and Paul in the live environment. I've seen Neil Finn in concert numerous times, and I always held out hope for one reunion tour.
The "Farewell to the World" concert they gave at the Sydney Opera House was amazing. I'm really quite shocked and saddened by this.
This depressed me. I lived with an Aussie for a few years and she turned me onto Crowded House and the Finn Brothers and Split Enz. I like Goon was always hoping that maybe one more time they would get the band back together.
So, when I first saw this, I thought is was... just okay (it starts off a little slow). But since then, I've watched it at least 20 times, and I'm now convinced that it's pretty brilliant. They really did their homework.
