Powderfinger’s decision to quit after 20 years was meant to culminate in two massive gigs at Brixton Academy last month. Then mother nature rudely intervened with a spewing volcano. So cue some delayed gratification this weekend as the BrisVegas rock legends treat the UK to one last run-through of their hits.
Lead man Bernard Fanning has promised songs from their early albums Double Allergic and The Internationalist through to their most recent Golden Rule.
There won’t be a dry eye in the house.
