Originally forming as The Farriss Brothers in 1977, INXS began playing covers in Western Australian pubs and clubs occasionally playing some of their original music.
The band’s founding members were lead singer and lyricist Michael Hutchence, main composer and keyboardist Andrew Farriss, drummer Jon Farriss, guitarist Tim Farriss, bassist Gary Beers, and guitarist/ saxophonist Kirk Pengilly.
During their first 10 years as a band, INXS went from playing pubs across Australia to filling modest-sized venues in the United States.
The result of their rising success was selling over 30 million records worldwide, and performing over 4, 000 live shows to over 25 million people in almost 50 countries. INXS had 36 Australian hits (13 top ten), 23 in the UK, 18 in the US, 13 Australian top 10 albums and 6 consecutive top ten UK & US albums.
Live Baby Live! Is Australia’s premier tribute to INXS – one of the most iconic bands in Australian history.
Live Baby Live! deliver a stunning replication of all the classic INXS tracks such as Original Sin, Need You Tonight, Never Tear Us Apart, The One Thing, Devil Inside, New Sensation and more. The show covers songs from the first INXS album all the way through to the latest hits.
Live Baby Live! brings together a group of musicians that have a combined 40+ years experience in playing music and performing live. The group is fronted by Guy Collings who is a natural born performer and brings the late Michael Hutchence to life on stage and bears a striking resemblance to Hutchence in his sound.
Guy is joined by Matt Porter on keyboards, harmonica, rhythm guitar and backing vocals, Lucas Collings on lead guitar and backing vocals, Justin Miranda on bass guitar and Jackson Collings on drums and percussion.
Combining all these elements together, Live Baby Live! produce a show that can only be described as an ‘amazingly accurate tribute to the mighty INXS’.
Guy Collings and the band pay meticulous detail to the unforgettable INXS Live at Wembley Stadium performance and bring swagger to match! Let Live Baby Live! take you back to a time when rock and roll ruled.
