On Thursday 22nd November 2007, it will mark ten years

Michael Hutchence.

To commemorate his passing and celebrate his music some of Sydney’s & Melbourne’s young indie musicians and some “very special guests” will come together for their tribute to him at The Manning Bar, Sydney University on Saturday 24th November.

“The passion lives to keep the faith
Do you like what you see
Or does it make you cry
Use your imagination
And start a fire”

(The Stairs - Michael Hutchence)

This night will culminate in a bringing together of artists who knew and loved Michael and were his contemporaries, as well as those who acknowledge his influence on their music.

The Memorial Concert for Michael, will be a “happy” one, celebrating his life works, focused on Michael, and also, to celebrate his remarkable life with INXS. At the same time it will highlight his solo projects and his inspiration to people worldwide.  All of which were a wonderful contribution to the music industry. Music fans everywhere continue to appreciate or discover Michael and INXS’ music anew.

The night here in Sydney will begin at 7.30pm. There will be lucky door prizes, merchandise, memorabilia auctions and some great rare clips and footage shown throughout the night. 

“Michael believed in universal love and peace and particularly in helping our youth in their troubled years,” said Kell Hutchence.

Kell’s words inspired Ange Perou to pledge all monies raised in memory of Michael to Father Riley’s Youth Off The Streets charity organisation and Scholarship Program.
