28-07-11-Sean's illness means the final 2 USA shows (Roxy &Outside Lands) have (sadly) been scrapped as well. Sorry folks, I know this is frustrating. Ticket refunds underway now. Press statement below
"Pajama Club ( Neil and Sharon Finn) are very sorry to announce they are unable to play upcoming gigs at the Roxy on the 13th of July and Outside Lands festival on the 14th of August . This is to enable keyboard player Sean Donnelly to return to NZ to have treatment for a medical condition which has previously forced cancellation of one show in the U.K. It is very disappointing to let down those who have brought tickets but our prime consideration must be Sean's good health. We will seek to reschedule shows in these cities in the near future."
20-07-11-and just in from Neil: "our sincere apologies to those who bought tickets for cancelled shows on west coast of the U.S. In addition to some scheduling conflicts we have pressing reasons to get back to NZ a little sooner and wish to reassure you that we will be back for a more extensive run of dates once the Pajama Club record has come out. We are still intending to rock the Roxy in L.A. and Outside lands in San Fran on our way home . Hope some of you might be able to join us there."

- Auckland Zoo is set to host another amazing concert at our most unique venue this summer when Tim, Neil and Liam Finn take the rotunda stage to play a selection of their combined catalogues of songs, old and new.
- The three Finn's have never performed together at an event quite like this and the trio are clearly excited at the prospect.
- "Neil, Liam and myself look forward to playing each others' well known songs in the Summer twilight when all the animals stir and leave their shelter, turn to each other and perform their rites. We will comb through the catalogues of Split Enz, Crowded House, Finn Brothers and Liam's solo work to find the right tunes for the occasion. A rare gathering of brothers, uncles, cousins and crocodiles." says Tim.
- And Neil concurs. "It's a rare and wonderful thing to perform on stage with other songwriters you deeply admire and respect even more special when they happen to be closest family. What a good thought ! We�ll be together on a summer evening, prancing and cavorting, adding some sweet Finn harmonies to the evening chorus at the zoo" .
- When asked, Liam Finn agrees that this show is one in a million. "I have grown up playing Dad and Tim�s songs which has always been fun and a big part of what made me the me the musician I am today. I am especially excited to get to perform and hear my songs with both of their voices and flourishes. This will be a night at the zoo to remember!"
- The Auckland Zoo concert is a child friendly environment. Gates open at 5pm with an approximate show time of 7.00pm

I'm working towards some webcasting from home just like the old ones on NILFUN so thats coming too .
- The main act is my new album and I am in the very final stages of the mixing so its almost done , very diverse and fresh to my ears . I have a new rec company ( again ) and they are very keen so who know you may even get to hear about this one but it may not be out till early next year because thats the way they roll . There will be some music emerging before that though and should be quite a bit of touring next year all over the world . Thanks for your ongoing encouragement ." Neil Finn
