INXS Perform In Native Australia With New Vocalist

Veteran rock group INXS have played their first Australian concert since new Irish frontman Ciaran Gribbin took over as lead vocalist, following the departure of previous singer J.D. Fortune.

The band, originally from Australia, took to the stage in Fremantle on Saturday night for their first performance together – and they received a warm welcome.

Singing in front of 2,000 Aussies, Gribbin paid tribute to late founding member and original vocalist Michael Hutchence, who committed suicide back in 1997. He told the crowd: “I know how important INXS is to Australia. I'll never be able to fill his boots...but I hope he's up there smiling down on me.”

But, fill his boots he did, and the band enjoyed a more than successful show on their first venture back Down Under.

You can watch a performance by Gribbin and the band on their ‘Like You've Never Seen Them Before’ tour in this video.
