INXS in Europe?
According to Sonicnet, the upcoming INXS documentary will also be including footage of the reconfigured group, which features the original members with New Zealander Jon Stevens guesting on vocals. Stevens has performed several concerts with the band, including the closing ceremonies for the Olympic Games in Sydney in September and two rehearsal shows for a scheduled — and subsequently cancelled — tour of New Zealand. Other INXS dates have been scheduled with Stevens, including a New Year's Eve appearance in Adelaide, Australia, in conjunction with a Le Mans car race. McConnell, Senior VP of Columbia TriStar Productions Australia, said that European dates in June and July are also on the group's itinerary.

INXS Movie reports that Columbia TriStar Productions will produce a docufilm about the life and times of one of Australia's greatest rock bands ever - INXS. With a working title of "Don't Change", the project is currently in development. Comments Fran McConnell, Senior Vice President of Columbia TriStar Productions Australia: "We're very excited about this unique project with INXS. We have optioned over fifty hours of previously unseen home video and out-take footage, all shot by the band, that follows them over a fifteen year period. It's a fascinating journey of boys to men on a world stage."
Coyote Ugly Nomination
The soundtrack to the hit summer film Coyote Ugly has been nominated for best soundtrack at the upcoming American Music Awards in January. INXS' classic "Need You Tonight" appears on the soundtrack and prominently in the movie. (thanks to michelle mcferran) 
And finally, In Music & Media reports that a party of twenty which arrived at Sydney's Hemisphere club was settling in to a lounge when a staff member yelped "You can't sit there, that's for VIPs", meaning Sting and his party who were coming. If the staffer had looked closer, she'd have spotted INXS drummer Jon Farriss in the group. Whoops! :)

Michael's lasting legacy is about to become the subject of a new documentary scheduled for release next year. A BBC Digital Television crew fly into Sydney this month to coincide with the anniversary. They are filming the final segment of a documentary on Rock Shrines and wish to interview fans at the 25th November gathering around Michael's stone. The documentary has the support of Michael's Dad who feels if they are going to make a documentary, this is the one to cooperate with. With filming completed by the BBC on John Lennon, Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix, Michael's anniversary will give opportunity for the world to see the huge impact he and his music has had on people from vastly different backgrounds.
