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.

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.
