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."
