INXS are finally ready to show their new singer off to a wider Australian audience with their Coast To Coast tour announced this week.


There's honestly not really much that we can say about INXS that is going to convince you whether or not they're your cup of tea, you ought to know by now. Once upon a time the band were one of the biggest in the world and certainly our most successful export before things dropped off a little bit and, of course, their legendary frontman Michael Hutchence passed away. They've had a number of guys out the front since then, the latest of which is Irish singer-songwriter Ciaran Gribbin, who will join the band on their biggest Australian tour in a very long time this June. The band are finally getting back to a lot of the regional areas that they've been wanting to revisit for so long, as well as the capital cities, meaning they'll be working their arses off for around six weeks, ensuring everyone feels the love. Catch them at the Hahndorf Old Mill Wednesday 6 June, Mt Gambier's Barn Palais Thursday 7, the Geelong Performing Arts Centre Saturday 9, Horsham Town Hall Sunday 10, Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre Wednesday 13, Mudgee's Parklands Resort Saturday 16, the Crossing Theatre in Narrabri Sunday 17, Club Forster Wednesday 20, C.ex Coffs in Coffs Harbour Friday 22, Lismore Workers Club Saturday 23, Harrigan's @ Drift Inn, Jacobs Well Sunday 24, Empire Theatre, Toowoomba Tuesday 26, Twin Towns, Tweed Heads Thursday 28, the Eatons Hill Hotel Saturday 30, Campbelltown RSL Friday 13 July and finally The Evan Theatre @ Penrith Panthers on Sunday 15.
