Bad news for INXS fans: the classic '80s band has officially broken up. During a concert in Perth Australia last weekend, drummer Jon Farriss shocked fans by his emotional admission that it would be their last show, and Monday night the band released an official statement declaring, "We understand that this must come as a blow to everybody, but all things must eventually come to an end."

Some fans consider the death of former frontman Michael Hutchence in 1997 as the end of INXS, while others have continued their support throughout recent years. Will you miss INXS?

BILLBOARD.COM reports:
INXS has confirmed that it's calling it quits. The Australian group announced on Monday night that it had decided to bring the curtain down on a career that's lasted 35 years and 11 studio albums, including six that sold platinum or better in the U.S.

    Can't say I will, when a lead singer dies the rest should just "re-group" & get a new name!!

    As people usually say, if the lead singer died or has gotten replaced it usually isn't the same (no offense.)

    When boys (or womyn front lead singers) get new lead singer (s) it is not the same like: AC/DC, Journey (sans Steve Perry), Judas Priest (Rob Halford is JUDAS PRIEST no other boy can replace him and his voice) so on and so forth......

    .....if the group gets a replacement due to death or not, it might or might not sound the same; vocally or musically!! I'm not in the music business world, so I'm just guessing?

    I loved their music but I am one who agrees with the notion that INXS died when Michael Hutchence died. It is sad because they had some great material.

    So the question taking up space on the front page of Sodahead is:
    - There was a band from the 80s-90s era that had some smash hits and then apparently finished when the lead singer died... apparently has continued touring since then.... and now will stop touring some 20 years later.
    Wow this is a real shocker! I mean.. I guess I have to take a night to absorb this and does anyone under 35 even know who they were and I suspect that 234,000 musical bands eventually stop selling tickets as a band.
    Should we go through every one of them?

    They were great in the 80's and early 90's. But when Hutchence died of some kinky sex game, by himself that is. They were done.

    I wasn't a groupie, but they had a lot of good tunes.
    I've missed them since Hutchence died. Sorry, but they waited too long to find a new singer.
