THEY were at the heart of two of New Zealand's most successful bands and have now united musically again for a UK tour that will arrive in Ipswich later this year.

Neil and Tim Finn, who enjoyed success as members of Split Enz and Crowded House during the eighties and nineties, will be performing together at the Regent on October 29. Tickets for the hotly anticipated gig go on sale tomorrow morning.

The brother's UK tour will coincide with the release of their first collaborative studio album in nearly ten years, Everyone is Here.

Neil said: "The last time we did a Finn Brothers record (Finn in 1995) it was kind of a side project in many ways in the timing of it. "We only toured for a few weeks and we only took four weeks to make the album.
