Australasian pop band Crowded House were today announced as the latest act to play Thetford Forest this summer.

The group, fronted by New Zealander songwriter Neil Finn, had a string of hits in the late 80s and early 90s before splitting in 1996.

But the act, which reformed last year with an acclaimed new album, will be performing at High Lodge, near Thetford, on Thursday July 10 as part of the Forestry Commission's annual forest tour.

The announcement follows up a number of sold out UK arena dates last year, with a further UK and European tour this summer.

Crowded House recorded some of the best pop music of the early 90s including classics like Don't Dream It's Over, Fall At Your Feet, Four Seasons In One Day, It's Only Natural, Locked Out, Instinct and Weather With You.
