THE AUSTRALIAN INXS
The Australian INXS Show is the definitive ‘Live Baby Live’ tribute to INXS and faithfully reproduces the live spectacle INXS were famous for.
Featuring the incredible talent of Dellacoma Rio, whose uncanny portrayal of Michael Hutchence has crowds in awe at every performance.
……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 selling out venues worldwide with incredible high energy live shows, including headline concerts in Dubai, India, China, and New Zealand, and exclusive headline theatre shows on Royal Caribbean cruise ships.
Whether there’s 4000+ people at the Adelaide Convention Centre, a festival crowd or a packed house at Dee Why RSL, The Australian INXS Show captures the unforgettable essence of INXS, and delivers a night not to be missed. Catch them soon!
Dellacoma Rio is an experienced, explosive lead vocalist with a relentless work ethic. He has already shared the stage worldwide with a slew of major acts (including Def Leppard, Skid Row, Black Label Society and Winger) and graced main stages at major festivals (including Rock USA, Rocklahoma, Rockin the Rivers and Rock Fest).
Del brings a natural charisma to the role of Michael Hutchinson which has to be seen to be believed.
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.
Noel Tenny is the most consummate professional drummer known to mankind. As an in demand drummer over many years, Noel has toured the world many times and brings his considerable talent to our 80’s journey. No stranger to huge crowds, Noel delivers a thumping show and puts his heart and soul into every performance.
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.
