First live performance goes out this weekend

Crowded House are planning to stream a special live webcast this weekend.

The performance, their first since the band reformed earlier this year, will go out on air at 10pm GMT on Saturday (March 17).

Webcasting from their rehearsal room near Bath, Crowded House will play a host of new tracks and old favourites.

The band will take time during the performance to read out comments and answer questions from fans, who can email them to questions@crowdedhouseofficial.com starting from half-an-hour prior to the performance.

Ten competition winners will also be allowed into the rehearsal room with the band.

Meanwhile, the band have just completed their new album ‘Time On Earth’, which is due out in June. It’s their first studio album since 1994’s ‘Together Alone’.
