World Lost Elvis On The Same Day It Gained INXS

The very first INXS gig was on the same day Elvis Presley died.

INXS’ Kirk Pengilly posted today that it was exactly 35 years today when INXS played their first ever gig.

“35 years ago today, we performed our first official gig as “The Farriss Brothers” at a party in the house Tim was living in at Whale beach. I still remember it clearly. They were different times, that’s for sure…

“It’s hard to believe that we are still here today, the same bunch of guys making music together but sadly, without Michael. What an amazing road we have travelled and are still travelling.

“Immense thanks to all our fans, past, present and future…”

Kirk Pengilly

So the world lost Elvis Presley on this day in 1977 and gained INXS. Was that a fair swap?
