LIVE BABY LIVE: Capturing the legacy of INXS

EAO Entertainment will bring the Live Baby Live INXS show to town this March for two massive shows of 80’s swagger.

Live Baby Live is a true-to-form replication of the legendary INXS featuring six top-tier musicians who have been transporting audiences around the country with the sound that defines a generation.

Simon Kennedy takes on the role of the enigmatic Michael Hutchence, delivering a reimagined performance filled with passion and emotion that captures the sex appeal, mojo, and energy that made Hutchence a rock icon.


Originally known as the Farriss Brothers, INXS carved an indelible mark on the music scene, emerging from Sydney, Australia, in 1977. The founding members, Garry Gary Beers, Andrew, Jon, and Tim Farriss, Michael Hutchence, and Kirk Pengilly, laid the groundwork for what would become an iconic Australian rock band. Initially recognized for their new wave/pop sound, INXS later evolved into a powerhouse of pub rock, infusing funk and dance elements into their music.

The pinnacle of their success came in the mid-to-late 1980s and early 1990s with hit albums like Listen Like Thieves, Kick, and X, featuring chart-toppers like Need You Tonight and Never Tear Us Apart. Michael Hutchence’s charismatic stage presence made him the heart of the band for two decades until his tragic death in 1997.

With six ARIA awards and an induction into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2001, INXS left an indomitable legacy. Selling over 50 million albums worldwide, they stand as one of Australia’s highest-selling music acts, showcasing the enduring impact of their unique sound and magnetic performances.

The show is a testament to the enduring legacy of INXS, with meticulous attention to detail in both sound and style.

Live Baby Live will grace the stage for two nights in the region, offering fans the opportunity to immerse themselves in the electrifying atmosphere of the ’80s and celebrate the musical brilliance of one of Australia’s most beloved bands.

The Live Baby Live INXS show hits Belmont 16s on Friday 1 March and Wests Nelson Bay on Saturday 2 March.
