Just witnessed your best live gig?..send us a review!

Shepherds Bush Empire, London 12 October 2006

I approached this gig not knowing what to expect. I have had a copy of INXS new CD 'Switch' for some time and had been impressed by it, however, Michael Hutchence was a great frontman and it was obvious that whoever took his place would have a big pair of shoes to step into - and new vocalist JD Fortune is the right man for the job.

Opening the show with a brilliant rendition of 'Suicide Blonde' it was not like the band had benn away, save a few gigs with guest vocalists, of nearly a decade - and the audience loved it. The set mixed massive world-wide hits such as 'Need You Tonight', 'New Sensation' and 'Mystify' with tracks of the recently released 'Switch' such as 'Pretty Vegas', 'Devils Party' and 'Afterglow' (which, in my opinion, should be released as a single immediately!!!).

The big one of the night though was 'Never Tear Us Apart'- yes, not one person in that room could not say that JD Fortune is an ideal replacement for Hutchence, this was an outstanding version of what, must be, INXS biggest and best known hit.

The band are back in November for 2 more shows at The Empire and I would highly recommend trying to get your hands on a ticket- you won't regret it.

This could be one of the best gigs that I have been to in at least 15 years.
