The Crosby, Stills and Nash-inspired single, Can You Feel, hit the shelves in February 2000 and peaked at number 35 on the ARIA singles chart. Another single, Nothing in this World, was released in July 2000 and reached number 43. The singles were supported by tours, including promotional trips to Europe, New Zealand and Japan. Perhaps the biggest newsmaker of 2000, however, was the departure of Dan Hall in June. The official word was that Dan could not participate in the up-coming Tina Turner tour due to illness. Dan later spoke to Rolling Stone magazine and stated that he felt as though he was “flogged by the record company and management and had had a gutful”, basically telling them all where to go. The split had absolutely nothing to do with the other band members. Dan is now happily playing with a new band in Melbourne and will not be returning to Taxiride in the near future. Now playing as a three-piece, Taxiride was again in the Australian spotlight upon their return from Tina's massive European tour; September saw the group performing at Olympic Games celebrations, the opening of the Paralympic Games and the presentation of an ARIA Award. Taxiride also supported Matchbox Twenty during their Mad Season Australian tour, throwing in a few solo gigs in between, before heading back into the studios to start recording their second album.
