Mark, meanwhile, toured with several other artists, including Music/RingoStarr. A collection of rarities, ''Afterglow'', was released in 1999, and the final show at the Sydney Opera House was eventually released as the album and DVD ''Farewell To The World'' in celebration of the show's 10th anniversary in 2006.

However, Crowded House reformed in 2007, with Matt Sherrod on drums, after the tragic 2005 suicide of Paul Hester. They have since released two well-received albums, 2007's ''Time On Earth'' and 2010's ''Intriguer''.

On their third album, ''Woodface'', Neil's brother [[BandOfRelatives Tim Finn]] joined the band. It brought the band invigorated commercial success (while not charting highly in the States, it was the first of their albums that cracked the Top 10 in the UK) which allowed them to indulge in the [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly artier]] ''Together Alone'' (Tim Finn left the band before the recording of the album, and replaced by guitarist Mark Hart) which is now widely considered their masterpiece, spawning seven singles.
