Powderfinger Perform Last Ever Show
Australian rockers POWDERFINGER have taken their final bow - the band performed its last ever concert on Saturday (13Nov10).
The group, who formed in 1989, announced earlier this year (10) their Sunsets tour Down Under would be their last, saying in a statement, "We have decided, after much deliberation and agonising, that after this final tour we will call it a day."
The trek was originally set to end last month (Oct10) but after the dates sold out within minutes, the rockers added more gigs in their native country.
The five-piece wrapped up their career with a final show in their hometown, Brisbane, where they wowed the 10,000-strong crowd with their hits from the last two decades.
Powderfinger finished the show with These Days, with frontman Bernard Fanning slowly singing the last few words, "This life is slipping through my hands, These days turned out nothing like I had planned", before the bandmembers shook hands and walked off stage.
The group has sold more than 2.5 million records in Australia, winning 16 Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) awards, including three back-to-back wins for Album of the Year.
