The Kiwi legends play Coachella

Crowded House are set to reform for a tour and an appearance at the Coachella festival in California.

The band’s reformation follows the appearance of Crowded House bassist Nick Seymour on Neil Finn’s forthcoming solo album.

The band played their final show on November 26, 1996 at the Sydney Opera House to 100,000 fans as a benefit for the Sydney Children’s Hospital Fund.

Drummer Paul Hester took his own life in 2005 after battling depression. Billboard reports there will be auditions to find a replacement for him.

As previously reported Rage Against The Machine are also set to reform for Coachella, which runs between April 27 and 29.
