Crowded House front man and prolific hit maker on stage in Dubai
Time Out Dubai staff
Neil Finn live at Dubai Tennis Stadium, May 15 2014 Wrapping up a ten week world tour in Dubai, Kiwi national treasure Neil Finn reached back over his inimitable four decade back catalogue to perform a spellbinding set, dipping into Crowded House classics and Split Endz curveballs alongside surprisingly vibrant material from this year’s solo effort, Dizzy Heights. Mixing Neil Young-esque guitar wig-outs with solo piano exorcisms, acoustic singalongs and amiable dad-humour, by the end of the evening the predominantly antipodean crowd was chanting in ecstatic union, Finn’s glowing reputation as a songwriter’s songwriter and consummate musician comfortably secured. Magnificent stuff.
