INXS tonight @ the Barrowlands

Managed to score a couple of free tickets to see INXS tonight. Olly isn't up for it... but the Soos is! It'll be my first time at the world-famous Glasgow Barrowland Ballroom - it has a rep as a great venue... just worried about the motor!

I'm not big on the new INXS - I saw the old band live with MH in the mid 90's at the SECC but kind of lost interest after X. I understand their new frontman, JD Fortune, won the gig as part of a reality TV show... which was, by all accounts, a great show.

I need to check out their latest album :: Switch :: the Soos rates it... and that is usually a good indicator that it'll be sweet.

I don't really know what to expect... but I am looking forward to it.

Seriously you are going to LOVE it! I watched the show half of the time, and thought it would be fun to get tickets when they came to my city. But the concert was just awesome, and JD does an amazing job. I was totally obsessed with them after that for a few months!
Go and have a great time, and leave the MH comparisons at home if at all possible!

Agreed. I saw the band play London this past October. They brought the house down. New singer JD Fortune is a born star and he really worked the sold out house. The band were on fire.
