A new lead singer for INXS has not diminished any interest in the band. Initial ticket sales for INXS' "Switched On"
theater tour produced strong results with several cities selling out within hours. A fast sellout in Toronto prompted a
second show, which also sold out. Concerts sold out in Vancouver, Seattle, Oakland, CA, Minneapolis, Chicago,
Atlantic City, NJ, Reading, PA, Philadlephia and Washington. DC.
Tour producer Metropolitan Talent Presents is now extending the first leg with two weeks of dates down the
East Coast and into Florida. In addition, plans are now underway for a second U.S. leg in spring 2006.
"Switched On" kicks off January 18 in Vancouver and will be the group's first tour with new lead singer J.D. Fortune.
Marty Casey, the Rock Star: INXS runner up, and his band the Lovehammers will open the tour. –Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
