KUALA LUMPUR: Australian rock band INXS powered into Malaysia and played a rocking show in front of 5,000 screaming fans at Stadium Negara last night. The concert was part of the band's Switched On World Tour and in promotion of its latest and 11th studio album Switch.
Leading the band was new lead singer JD Fortune, a Vancouver, Canada native. Fans were treated to a selection of classic INXS songs like Suicide Blonde, Need You Tonight and Never Tear Us Apart and numbers from its latest album such as Pretty Vegas and Afterglow.
Frontman Fortune displayed the energy and vocal prowess that won him the role of lead singer via the reality music show Rockstar: INXS.
The event, sponsored by Celcom and organised by Galaxy Productions, saw a mix of young and old fans, all thrilled to catch new singer Fortune strut his stuff, along with other band members Kirk Pengilly, Garry Beers and brothers Andrew, Tim and Jon Farris.
