INXS

INXS are finally calling it quits, according to reports. The band are yet to issue an official statement, but PerthNow says that drummer Jon Farriss announced the split at a show in Perth, where they were supporting Matchbox Twenty.

35 years in the game, the Aussie rockers have had various frontmen since the death of founding vocalist Michael Hutchence in 1997, including JD Fortune, the Canadian recruited via a TV talent show, who had two stints fronting the group. Though more recently Irish singer Ciaran Gribbin has taken that role, including at what was possibly the band’s final ever show.
