Australian rockers INXS are giving up touring after 35 years.

Drummer Jon Farriss announced the end of the band's remarkable run of performances during a concert in the West Australia city of Perth earlier this week.

The band later confirmed the news in a statement.

INXS was formed in 1977 and released their self-titled debut album in 1980.

They achieved worldwide fame with hits such as New Sensation, Need you Tonight, and Devil Inside.

Frontman Michael Hutchence died in 1997.

In a statement, the band paid tribute to their friend, saying: "We lived for each other in the trenches and we loved each other. It was the six of us against the world and then suddenly and inexplicably we were but five."

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
