....Featuring six energetic and professional musicians The Australian INXS Show both celebrates and honours the memory of Michael Hutchence and the band by bringing back to life the halcyon days of INXS, all the way from their self-titled debut and onto Elegantly Wasted.

……On the 13th of November 2012 after thanking fans and paying tribute to their fallen, but 'irreplaceable' front man Michael Hutchence, INXS put an end to a career spanning 35 years, six ARIA awards, three Grammy nominations and over 30 million album sales.

For 20 years, INXS were a perfect blend of New Wave/Ska and pop rock groove that eventually gave way to a harder and unique style of funk rock, fused with dance elements. Not only had they sold out thousands of venues around the world, received dozens of gold and platinum awards, they were also one of only five Australian bands to boast a US No 1 hit single. They had an endless array of hits including Need You Tonight, Never Tear Us Apart, Don't Change, and New Sensation….

The Australian INXS Show is the definitive ‘Live Baby Live’ tribute to INXS and faithfully reproduces the live spectacle INXS were famous for. Currently selling out venues all over Australia with amazing live shows, catch them soon!


The Band...

has played bass and fronted a string of original bands (Nana-Zhami, Lunchcutter and Die Smiling) playing countless gigs in pubs around VIC and The Gold Coast. 'Nana-Zhami' was part of the line up for John Farnhams 50th Birthday tour, playing 20 shows around Australia to over 200 thousand ticket holders. Simon brings a fabulous vocal tone and a wonderful stage presence to our show.

Rob Moody
has been obsessed with guitar for 21 years now, and has been gigging around Melbourne since 1995. An experienced musician with a broad range of musical styles at his disposal, Rob has toured with his band The Nightfillers, and played in cover bands such as WOMP and Shazam, played Spanish guitar with duo Fiesta, and country/rock with Sidetrack. Rob is dedicated to replicating classic guitar tones and delivering a quality performance on stage. He is also a sensational sax player!

Tim Phillips
arrived in Melbourne in 1989. He enjoys playing bass & writing songs on guitar.

Before joining The Australian INXS Show he played bass in numerous bands around Melbourne including N.E.K.(negative earth krap) Grace, Cinematica, Phil Para, Cory’s nightmare (Alice Cooper tribute), The Budgie Smugglers, AC/DSHE, & Absolutely Live The Doors Experience.

Simon D'Aquino
is an accompanist, pianist, vocal coach and musical director who remains actively involved in the Melbourne music scene. His experience in musical theatre has seen him involved as a repetiteur & pit musician for dozens of productions and also as a musical director for many more.

Starting initially as a solo concert performer, Simon has grown a diverse musical pallet having played a range of instruments in bands and recordings across styles of rock, pop, classical, opera and jazz.

Glenn Roche has played in many diverse bands over the years and grew up obsessed with INXS. Playing to INXS when growing up has burnt the songs into his memory and using a complete replica drum kit means you can’t get any closer to the real thing. Glenn has played professionally in Australia and overseas with original and cover bands, including television, music festivals, studio sessions, and many more. Glenn has spent his life preparing for this show but without knowing it.

Tim Saxon
started out rockin’ on the border for years in cover band ‘Tusk’ and joined the Melbourne music scene in 2000 with party band ‘Funked up’ and later ‘Toasted’.

He took on replicating top selling artists’ sound as tributes firstly with ‘The Alanis Morisette Tribute show’ (with Tim Minchen on Keys) and more recently ‘The Australian Matchbox Twenty’ and ‘Rob Thomas Tribute show’. He definitely knows how to get a sweet sound from his ‘six string’ and perform.
