Three days before departure Richard bought tickets to see Split Enz. They were relatively cheap seats in the TSB Arena in Wellington as they had an obscured view. We wondered whether this meant that we’d be sitting behind a post; this was thankfully not the case—we were sitting in the front row! Split Enz are a Kiwi band, with front men Neil and Tim Finn; these guys went on to form Crowded House. This concert was one of eight shows that Split Enz were doing on their reunion tour. We arrived and realised that our view was only slightly
obscured…by the main speakers; so there was no concern about now being able to hear what was going on. It was an excellent show, with the highlights being when Noel Crombie played the spoons.
