INXS, KICK re-release, Unseen Michael Hutchence footage, Latest Entertainment News Today


Rock band INXS are releasing previously unseen footage of tragic frontman Michael Hutchence to mark the 25th anniversary of their breakthrough album Kick!


The I Need You Tonight hitmakers are reissuing the iconic 1987 release, which has become one of the biggest-selling Australian albums of all time with more than 14 million copies shifted worldwide.

The new deluxe edition, which is set to come to a music retailer near you on the 17th September 2012, will include unheard demos, a tour poster, documentary clips of Hutchence, and never-before-seen handwritten lyrics by the singer, who died in 1997.

INXS manager Chris Murphy says:

“It’ll be an amazing, super-duper package. There’s stuff that was recorded with Michael for Kick that didn’t go on the album.”

The band, now fronted by Ciaran Gribbin, also plan to play Kick from start to finish in Australia later in 2012, as Murphy explains:

“We’re thinking about a very limited tour, a 25th anniversary tour to play Kick live. Ciaran has been an extraordinary find. It’s like fate. Michael is helping us here. He would have loved Ciaran.”

    I was cheekily searching for a picture of Michael Hutchence, and glad I clicked on this page as I missed this story. I’ve ordered my copy, and I’m looking forward to receiving it in a couple of weeks time. Thanks for posting this article!

    It’s still a tragic story, of how he died. I have always a fan of INXS, and still listen to their music today. Not the new stuff but the classic 90’s songs like Suicide Blonde – my favourite!

    I bought this album on CD, Vinyl and Cassette (remember those?) when it was released before. Will I be buying this again? Hell yes! 🙂

    I agree, Michael Hutchence was really cute. Maybe it was his bad-boy image, but there was definitely something about him. I’ve just pre-ordered the album. Thanks for the post!
