INXS at Wembley Stadium: All the aces but little heart

David Sinclair, The Times, 15 July 1991

QUITE BY coincidence INXS mount their London summer spectacular on the sixth anniversary of the Live Aid concert at this same venue, In so far as the Australian six-piece was presiding over a rock package show – a long bill of acts with no stylistic links, appearing in brisk succession and playing their best songs – the parallel was apt. Jellyfish, Roachford, Jesus Jones, Deborah Harry and Hothouse Flowers bulked out the musical content and without doubt playing their part in attracting this 72,000 capacity crowd.

Total word count of piece: 516
