30 years after their debut release, Crowded House will join some of Australian Music’s biggest legends on the esteemed ARIA Hall of Fame.

With Neil Finn at the helm, the band will head to Sydney on November 23rd for the induction ceremony at The Star.

Over three decades, Crowded House have been responsible for six studio albums, 11 ARIA awards from 26 nominations, and a handful of tracks in our top 50 singles chart. Possibly their biggest release was the track Don’t Dream, It’s Over, which earned them the MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist (back when that was an accomplishment) and in 2009 ranked number 50 in Triple J’s Hottest 100 of all time.
