INXS Kick Off Tour with New Frontman Ciaran Gribbin

Iconic rock band INXS pulled off one of the hardest tasks a band can see in the music world – they managed to rock-out an audience and put on a great show despite swapping their famed ex-frontman Michael Hutchence with Northern Irish singer-songwriter Ciaran Gribbin.

Their stunning debut, at Jardin de la Cerveza in Arequipa, Peru, kicked off the band’s new South American tour on November 3rd. And, while the crowd were visibly impressed by the band’s new vocalist, Gribbin was pretty excited and happy himself...

“I had the best night of my life singing with INXS in Peru,” Gribbin admitted. “The band was on fire and the wonderful audience was so up for it—a truly awesome experience that I will cherish forever.”

INXS performed for over two hours to the Peruvian fans rocking out to some of their greatest hits such as ‘Mystify’, ‘Suicide Blonde’, ‘Need You Tonight’ and, of course, their latest release written by Andrew Farriss and Gribbin, ‘Tiny Summer’.

One fan who attended the show said: “I attended the show in Arequipa, and I have to say that INXS exceeded by far my highest expectations. The band is so ‘neat’ and virtuous playing, and they groove so deep and hard! Mr. Gribbin is an excellent singer and a very good performer.”

Well, he’s received the seal of approval from Peru – now he’s just got to take on Australia, Holland, France and Belgium. Check the dates and details below if you need tickets to those shows.

INXS tour dates are as follows:

December 3 - Perth, Australia
December 8 - Amsterdam, Holland
December 11 - Paris, France
December 12 - Gent, Belgium

Bryan Adams - Ultimate (Album Review)
Tue 14 Nov 2017
If every picture paints a visual story, every ‘best of’ album tells a musical one. For example, there’s the feeling any Bryan Adams collection called ‘Ultimate’ shouldn’t include tracks recorded after the early ‘90s. Although the truth isn’t quite that straightforward, it’s hard to disagree when listening to the Canadian rocker’s latest career-spanning compilation.
Weezer - Pacific Daydream (Album Review)
Mon 30 Oct 2017
Weezer. Oh no. Last year’s ‘White Album’ restored faith in California’s most annoyingly inconsistent sons. After 15 years spent chipping away at their legacy, this guitar-toting, Beach Boys-worshiping band decided to take what made them brilliant in the first place and boot it into 2016. It was home to ‘50s melodies, alt-rock fuzz and painfully awkward words spewing from Rivers Cuomo’s lyric sheet. It was a Weezer record fans could finally be proud of.
