INXS Announces Second Leg of North American Tour

March 31, 2006

Responding to numerous sellouts and hands-down critical acclaim from the “Switched On” tour, multi-platinum rock group INXS will be mounting a second leg to the mega-successful 2006 North American concert trek in the spring. Tour producer Metropolitan Talent Presents is proud to announce that the Australia-based band will kick off the run on April 21 in Memphis. The tour will be highlighted by triumphant returns to New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago, plus 12 stops in Canada, homeland of new lead singer J.D. Fortune.

Fans can expect additional cities all along the West Coast and Texas to be announced in the coming weeks. Confirmed cities so far are listed below.

“The first leg proved that INXS’ winning combination is undeniable” says Metropolitan co-CEO John Scher. “They’re already an iconic group with long time fans. Add in their smash reality TV show, hot new album and phenomenal fan response and its no surprise that almost every seat was snatched up. It’s clear INXS is the don’t miss band to see in 2006.”

INXS has been performing an electrifying mix of songs from its recent album, Switch, including Top 10 hit “Pretty Vegas” and the new single “Afterglow,” along with a jukebox full of past chart-toppers, from “Suicide Blonde” and “New Sensation” to “Never Tear Us Apart” and “What You Need.”

INXS is Andrew Farriss (keyboards/guitar), Tim Farriss (guitar), Jon Farriss (drums), Kirk Pengilly (guitar/saxophone), Garry Beers (bass) and lead singer J.D. Fortune.
