Crowded House add more dates to ‘Dreamers Are Waiting’ tour

The majority of the original shows have sold out

Crowded House have announced an additional four dates for their ‘Dreamers Are Waiting’ tour, their first Australian tour in 12 years.

The shows – in support of their recent album ‘Dreamers Are Waiting’ – will see Crowded House play concerts in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth throughout April, with Middle Kids onboard to support. Tickets for shows in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney are already sold out, with additional tickets released for the previously sold-out Adelaide show.

Today (February 17), Crowded House declared they would be playing past the tour’s original last show at Bluesfest – where they join a lineup featuring Paul Kelly, Midnight Oil, Jimmy Barnes and more – adding four more dates to the run.


The new shows include two additional days at A Day On The Green in Geelong and the Hunter Valley – inclusive of the original Bowral edition of the touring festival, where The Teskey Brothers will serve as the opening act – as well as performances in Hobart and Canberra. Find all existing and new tour dates below.

Crowded House were set to headline Bluesfest’s 2020 edition before it was cancelled due to COVID-19 and subsequent restrictions. The 2021 festival was also cancelled, just one day before it was set to go ahead.

The ‘Dreamers Are Waiting’ tour kicks off in Perth on April 1. Tickets for the four new shows go on sale at 11am AEDT on Thursday February 24.

Last November, Crowded House picked up an ARIA award for Best Adult Contemporary Album for ‘Dreamers Are Waiting’, marking their 12th ARIA overall and their first since they were inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2016.

Bluesfest 2022 will also see The Cat Empire perform their final-ever show with their original lineup, playing a headlining set on opening night.
