Never tear them apart: INXS plans 25-date tour

INXS publicity photoWell, shabooh shoobah. It seems the surviving members of INXS have announced a 25-date tour of North America this summer to support their Original Sin collection of re-recorded greatest hits.

According to, the band hasn't announced who will handle lead vocals for the tour. J.D. Fortune has been singing with the band lately, but he's absent from the band's new publicity photo. On the Original Sin album, vocals are handled by Ben Harper, Rob Thomas, Tricky and other guest singers.

If you're thinking, "Hey, I don't really want to see INXS anyway without the late Michael Hutchence on the microphone," well, that's just the way it goes with '80s tours these days. And, consider this added bonus: Berlin will be joining INXS on at least 11 of the tour stops.
