I've always liked them
LinkI WISH bands would just let it lie sometimes. I’m saddened to have to tell you that INXS are to hold Pop Idol-style auditions around the world to find a replacement for their late singer MICHAEL HUTCHENCE.
Liverpool is so far the only UK city announced as one of the 20 venues for the auditions in 2005 — there are 13 in the US.
The judging panel will be made up of band members and so-called “music experts”.
Guitarist TIM FARRISS, one of the Aussie group’s co-founders, said: “We’re going back to some of our favourite places where there was always a pool of talent.
“Who knows who we are going to find. It’s going to be great fun.”
The auditions will be on US telly and organisers are looking for a British channel to pick the shows up for broadcast.
