INXS back where it all began

AUSSIE band INXS are set to move audiences with their own brand of emotional rock.

INXS are on their Coast to Coast tour which will include Penrith.

INXS guitarist Tim Farriss said audiences could expect to hear some new songs, along with their favourite hits.

"I can't wait to perform in Penrith," he said.

"We have just been performing all around the world and it's nice to be back in Australia.

"We will be performing all our big, basic, dirty-noise songs from the past and we've been writing some new songs.

"I think we might perform two to three new songs which we want to get out and show the audience.

"We also want to show Ciaran, our new lead singer, where we essentially started."

INXS performed for the first time in 1977 in Sydney's northern beaches.

"I remember it being the 16th of August and we use to call ourselves back then the Farriss Brothers," he said.

"I remember it quite vividly.

"I remember thinking wow, I can't believe we are performing in front of all these people."

Since then, the group have performed more than 4000 shows, sold more than 30 million records worldwide and received countless awards.

They have performed in Buenos Aires, in front of the royals in Melbourne and in front of countless teens in Tokyo.

The most memorable show for Farriss was headlining before 75,000 people at Wembley Stadium, in England.

"It was just amazing walking out and performing in front of all those people," Farriss said.

"The atmosphere was incredible."

INXS will perform at Penrith Panthers, on Sunday, July 15.
