From a Different Perspective

Former Split Enz frontman Tim Finn, 59, plays the Tanks Arts Centre in Cairns on 26 November, which is to coincide with the release of his latest album, The View Is Worth The Climb. “We’ll be playing plenty of new and old,” Finn says. “We have a lot of songs. We play the whole span of my career, from early Split Enz through my Crowded House time and onwards. This gives people a broader picture of the artist. They come to see me now and suddenly realise what the back story is, which then helps merge my new with old.” Finn was born in Te Awamutu.
