Crowded House & Rage Against the Machine played Coachella
Crowded House also played a warm-up gig at The Glass House on 4/27….
That clip is especially funny since the reunited Crowded House obviously knew what they were in for two nights later at Coachella. They had the unfortunate set time of right-before-Manu-Chao, and two-before the also-reunited Rage Against the Machine on the main stage – all at the very end of a 3-day festival. And there they were – this older kind-of-cheesy-older 80’s band playing to thousands of camped-out Rage fans.
It was really awkward when CH singer Neil Finn was hit in the face with a bottle right in the middle of Don’t Dream it’s over….”Hey now, Hey now…BAM…Don’t Dream it’s over….”. Ouch. He handled it well though – looked a little flustered, changed the words of the song to say he was unaffected, told the thrower it was a good shot, and said “they’re coming, they’re coming” to the many people chanting “RAGE”.
I would have watched Rage, but they didn’t stream it the bastards. More photos, videos, reviews, and what not later….
