Crowded House's triumphant return to the Sydney Opera House forecourt proved a ratings winner for ABC which broadcast the group's final of four sold out concerts live on Sunday night.

The show drew in 643,000 viewers, according to OzTAM's overnight ratings, who tuned in to hear frontman Neil Finn make one last comment about the residents of the Toaster apartment building at Circular Quay who have complained about the noise from the Opera House's alfresco concerts.

During the first concert on Thursday night, Finn told the crowd: "Let's wake up Alan Jones" - the 2GB host is a resident of the famous Toaster building.

On the final night, Finn offered an olive branch to the residents after a Twitter spat with one who complained about his in-concert comments.

"To all the nice people in the Toaster, when they bought their $7 million apartment they thought 'God there's going to be some nice music to listen to', let's hear it for them," Finn told the crowd, according to blog Music Feeds.

Every night a 5000-strong crowd watched the band celebrate 30 years since their formation and last week the band was inducted into the ARIA Hall of fame.

The concerts also marked exactly 20 years since the band played their Farewell to the World concert in the same spot.

Crowded House signed off with a fireworks display following their final song Better Be Home Soon.
