15 Years Ago Today – Michael Hutchence 22/01/1960 – 22/11/1997

Thursday, November 22nd, 2012


Today we all remember Michael who left us 15 years ago.  As the years go by, his music and memory still brings happiness to tens of thousands of people around the world.

He is so very missed, there is just no one like him left in the music industry. He was one of the last great rock stars of our time. A legend alongside the likes of John Lennon, Mick Jagger and Jim Morrison. 

Michael lives on in his legacy he left us. Thanks to his many fans who still carry the torch and support Michael.  And to all the Michael Hutchence groups on facebook who discuss and remember Michael each day thanks for your dedication.
 
Our love goes out to Michael's family & friends.  
 
The remaining members of INXS announced their retirement from touring this month after 35 years.  In the very early days when Michael started performing, as the band's final good bye each night MIchael would say "Koo-Moo-Loo-Mayo Yong Style", which didn't actually mean anything but it created mystery about him even back then. 

Even to this day even though he's not here, people are stlll interested in his life and there is still that aura of mystery about the great Michael Hutchence.

Wishing you peace & happiness Michael.  We will never forget you!

‘Summer XS’ Wembley Stadium 20 Years Ago Today!

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

 wembleyticket.jpg

It was July 13th, 1991 that Michael Hutchence with INXS performed a milestone concert in their career, becoming the only Australian band to sell out London's old Wembley Stadium in front of 72,000 fans!
 
The concert was captured on video and was later re-mastered on DVD in 2003 with bonus features. During the original taping the film in the cameras all ran out during the filming of 'Lately' so unfortunately that had to be left out, but on the DVD we combined the sound recording from Wembley Stadium with footage of Michael Hutchence as a tribute to him.

Michael and the band put in a top performance on the day, in what will always be remembered as one of INXS's greatest performances captured on film. Get out your DVD's today and re-live this classic concert on the 20th anniversary!
