INXS Last Concert With Michael Hutchence SETLIST

INXS played their last concert with Michael Hutchence at the Star Lake Amphitheater in Burgettstown, PA on September 27, 1997. Less than two months later, Hutchence was dead.

INXS were about to embark on their homecoming tour of Australia when Michael was found in his Sydney hotel room on November 22, 1997. They had not performed in Australia since 1994. The band’s last-ever Australian show with Hutchence was at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre in Newcastle on January 12, 1994.

Interest in the music of INXS was rejuvenated in recent weeks with the broadcast of the INXS Never Tear Us Apart biopic on Australian TV. More than 2 million Australian viewers tuned in to watch what Michael’s half-sister Tina is calling a “soap-opera” and accused the band and producers of “trashing” the Hutchence name.

The movie left a trail of insults to acts like Adam Ant, the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and an unflattering portrayal of Ian ‘Molly’ Meldrum for his honesty in exposing the studio created “live” album and pointing out that the band had spent little time playing to Australian fans.

Molly was right. When the band released ‘Kick’, they had only performed one Australian show at Shellharbour Workers Club in Wollongong as a warm-up for the world tour. They did not return to Australia for live performances for over a year.
