On Saturday 11th June 2011, the inaugural Southern Sounds music festival arrives at Clapham Common, London. Southern Sounds welcomes Australia’s most successful rock export to headline proceedings. With a career spanning 25 extraordinary years and a history peppered with outstanding achievements including 30 million albums sold, INXS are undoubtedly one of the world’s great bands. From headlining Wembley Stadium before 75,000 people, to winning the BRIT Award for Best International Group, to securing six consecutive Top 10 albums, INXS’ relationship with the UK has been a great love affair. In their first performance in London in over four years, Tim Farriss, Jon Farriss, Andrew Farriss, Kirk Pengilly and Garry Gary Beers make their greatly anticipated return in support of their remarkable new record ‘Original Sin’.
As their twelfth studio album, ‘Original Sin’ features covers of INXS’ earlier productions, with each song featuring a different singer. This includes Rob Thomas and Cuba’s DJ Yaleidy’s sultry teaming on ‘Original Sin’, to trip-hop superstar Tricky’s electrifying ‘Mediate’, to Ben Harper’s soulful and emotional ‘Never Tear Us Apart.’ With Professor Green’s re-work of ‘Need You Tonight’ storming the UK charts last year, INXS return to London with their signature hits as relevant as ever and loved both by long standing fans and a new generation of listeners.
In addition to an unforgettable closing performance from INXS, Southern Sounds will also play host to many more live acts and performers across three stages.
