New Zealand–Australian rock group Crowded House performed at the Paramount on May 3, 2023. The six-piece group included Neil Finn (lead vocals, guitar), Nick Seymour (bass), Liam Finn (guitar, vocals), Elroy Finn (drums), Mitchell Froom (keys), and Paul Taylor (percussion).
They performed a mix of Crowded House and Split Enz tunes. Between songs there was hilarious banter and joyful affection between Neil Finn and co-founder Nick Seymour—who Finn said really knew how to rock a kilt. The audience participated enthusiastically in sing-alongs throughout the evening. After a nearly two-hour set, the evening ended with a standing ovation and a two-song encore.
Crowded House guitarist Liam Finn opened the evening with an entertaining multi-instrumental performance. After a costume change, he joined Crowded House for the second set.
