SYDNEY (November 14, 2012)--Australian rockers INXS are giving up touring after 35 years, drummer Jon Farriss announced during a concert in the West Australia city of Perth earlier this week.
The band later confirmed the news in a statement.
INXS was formed in 1977 and released the band’s self-titled debut album in 1980.
They achieved worldwide fame with hits such as "New Sensation," ''Need you Tonight," and "Devil Inside."
Frontman Michael Hutchence died in 1997.
In a statement Tuesday, the band paid tribute to their friend, saying: "We lived for each other in the trenches and we loved each other. It was the six of us against the world and then suddenly and inexplicably we were but five. "
