Neil & Liam Finn, the father and son duo, announce a string of shows through the UK and Europe in January 2019. The pair have just released Lightsleeper, their first collaborative album together after periodically sharing the stage throughout their careers.
Neil is known for his bands Split Enz and Crowded House (and now as the newest member of Fleetwood Mac). Liam has defined himself outside of the mainstream with three solo albums of sonic exploration, all the whilst retaining the family knack for melodic hooks and effortless song craft.
This tour sees them returning to the cities where the ideas for this album were first hatched after their first joint shows together in London and Brussels in 2015.
“After admiring each other’s works for the past thirty years and then revelling in our shows at the Shepherds Bush Empire, we felt inspired to create our own repertoire and encourage this new evolution in the family legacy,” says Neil.
Liam adds: “We starting mucking around not knowing what we were going to sound like and found ourselves cruising comfortably in a sultry lounge of cinematic soundscapes. During the process I became a father, Dad became a grandfather and we somehow unwittingly documented this generational shift in this sprawling music.”
