On August 16 of 1977, INXS performed a stellar debut gig at a Sydney house party. Just yesterday, the rock collective commemorated that fateful gig by declaring it ‘INXS Day’; launched in affiliation with UMG, Petrol Records and Rhino Records.

‘INXS Day’ was celebrated via an hour-long Livestream event on TikTok. The event comprised interviews with the group and their producer, Giles Martin, as well as track-by-track features of their groundbreaking album, Kick in honour of its 35th anniversary.
