Australian rock music parallels its American counterpart in every way, except that it spins backwards when a DJ flushes it.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
INXS alleviates and regenerates on The Original Sin Tour, melding nostalgia and modernity into a new sensation for devoted fans and fresh inductees alike. As Australia’s finest export since the island, INXS has more than persevered, peppering every decade it encounters with the brain-burrowing hits that have helped sell more than 30 million records. With J.D. Fortune’s swaggering, prize-winning pipes back in action, INXS will excessively rock through timeless sonic sonnets with the tenacity of a bawdy tiger hijacking a meat truck. In support of Original Sin, its latest collection of rerecorded gems, expect to be enthralled as songs such as “Never Tear Us Apart” and “Don’t Change” cajole concertgoers into involuntarily joy spasms that resemble dance moves to the untrained eye.
