More U2 More U2

U2 paid tribute to late INXS frontman Michael Hutchence at their Sydney show last night. 

The group are currently in the country for their Joshua Tree album anniversary tour, with the tribute taking place at the first of two Sydney shows. 

Yesterday marked 22 years since the passing of Hutchence, who was a friend of the band. 

According to The Music reviewer Chris Familton, Hutchence was first mentioned during U2's track Bad, with frontman Bono then "interlacing the song with snippets of [INXS'] Never Tear Us Apart".
