Jon Stevens Fuses The Hits Of INXS and Noiseworks at Red Hot Summer

Jon Stevens was lead singer of INXS from 2000-2003. He toured the world with the band performing a 40-city tour in North America in 2002 as well as dates in the UK and South America. Jon knows the songs of INXS just like he knows his own Noiseworks songs. For Red Hot Summer you are getting both.

Jon was initially scheduled for Series three of Red Hot Summer in February and March with Suzi Quatro and Cheap Trick but with Jimmy Barnes currently out of action, the first three Red Hot Summer’s for 2024 have Jon performing the hits on INXS and Noiseworks as a bonus.

Jon is also performing with the Barnes supergroup on Red Hot Summer. His solo show with Noiseworks and INXS is a potent 50 minutes of hit after hit after hit after hit. “All Killer, No Filler” as the saying goes.

INXS predate Noiseworks but overlapped in the middle of the INXS timeline when Noiseworks emerged with what have now become three of Australia’s greatest rock albums of the era.

Noiseworks ‘Touch’ and INXS’ ‘Never Tear Us Apart’ were released just months apart. Noiseworks ‘Miles and Miles’ and INXS’ ‘Suicide Blonde’ were released eight weeks apart. When Jon was performing the songs of INXS and Noiseworks, all of those songs were released over a short 10 year period from 1982 to 1991. The curation of the setlist is in itself a study into Australian rock at the time.

Likewise, when Jon came back later to sing the Jimmy Barnes and INXS hit ‘Good Times’ with Mahalia, it was all from this same era.
