"SHINE LIKE IT DOES" IS THE NEW ANTHOLOGY FROM INXS FEATURING THEIR MUSIC FROM 1979 TO 1997 AND SOME UN-RELEASED TRACKS
Andrew Farriss, INXS: the first two or three songs for example are single releases and that sort of thing that we had even before we had a career in North America.
THE ANTHOLOGY IS DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF former LEAD SINGER MICHAEL HUTCHEnce WHO COMMITED SUICIDE IN 1997.
Kirk Pengilly: we just kind of wanted to make it //sort of uh kinda tribute to all our music we've made with Michael through our whole career. and its kind of serves a bit you know a bit of closure too to you know the era we had with Michael.
after hutchence, BAND members did some side projects...but the Aussie rockers RE-UNITED for the 2000 Olympics..
Kirk Pengilly: we were asked to open the um Sydney Olympic Stadium. And I just thought that was such an odd request because we don't have a singer (Laughs). We uh called up Terrence Trent Darby and he came out and did it and it was fantastic.
BECAUSE OF GREAT RESPONSE FROM FANS and desire to play THEY WENT ON TO OTHER SHOWS WITH GUEST VOCALISTS. THIS YEAR INXS PLANS TO GO ON TOUR with NOISEWORK frontman john Stevens.
