INXS TOOK ON THE WORLD.
AND FOR A WHILE THEY OWNED IT. NEVER TEAR US APART IS THEIR STORY.
From Seven and Shine Australia comes INXS: Never Tear Us Apart, the extraordinary and uncensored story of INXS, told for the very first time in exclusive collaboration with the band and those who knew them best.
This two-part television event commencing this Sunday on Seven is the ultimate story of sex, drugs and rock’n’roll; of mateship, success and excess, marred by the tragic death of singer Michael Hutchence in November 1997.
See how these six suburban boys from Sydney’s Northern Beaches conquered the world with their unique sound and a work ethic that was legendary. Beyond the music; beyond the roar of a sellout crowd, there were the parties, planes, drugs and girls. INXS played hard and partied even harder, but the rock’n’roll lifestyle took its toll on these lifelong friends.
Never Tear Us Apart is Executive Produced by Mark Fennessy, Rory Callaghan and Seven’s Julie McGauran, with the band’s manager CM Murphy and Tim Farriss as Co-Executive Producers.
It stars Luke Arnold (Winners & Losers) in a breakout role as Michael Hutchence, Damon Herriman (Love My Way), Hugh Sheridan (Packed to the Rafters) and Samantha Jade (The X Factor).
The series was filmed in Melbourne mid-2013, with full access to the INXS archive of music, photography and stories.
INXS are one of Australia’s most successful rock bands ever with over 30 million records sold worldwide, including number ones in four different continents and a performance history of some 4,000 live shows to over 25 million people in almost 50 countries.
