Crowded House Bump Johnson To Headline Live Earth In Sydney
LATEST: Reformed rockers CROWDED HOUSE have bumped JACK JOHNSON from the headlining spot at Sydney. Australia's Live Earth concert after confirming they'll perform at the eco-friendly fundraiser.
Surf rocker Johnson confirmed he'd perform at the Sydney show this July (07) with another reunited Antipodean act, Midnight Oil, last month (Apr07), but he has been forced to step down from headlining.
Crowded House announced they'd headline the event yesterday (01May07) - just two days after a triumphant comeback performance at California's Coachella Festival.
