But it doesn’t end there though.

As the series wraps up, audiences will also be treated to sets from the likes of Winston Surfshirt, the James Morrison Motown Experience in addition to James Morrison & His Big Band featuring Emma Pask. Lastly, Night At The Barracks wraps up with a special show from the iconic Tim Finn, who will be joined by special guest Martha Marlow with the great Chris Abrahams.

Finn will perform a vast array of tracks from his esteemed solo career, and cuts from his work with not only Split Enz but also the beloved Crowded House. Needless to say, it’s an event not to be missed, and will provide a memorable way to cap off the series.
