INXS, circa 2011

The surviving members of INXS — accompanied, presumably, by frontman/game show winner J.D. Fortune — will mount a 25-date tour of North America this summer in support of the Australian rockers’ recently released Original Sin collection of re-recorded greatest hits.

The tour, announced Tuesday night, opens July 3 in Brockville, Ontario, and includes six more Canadian dates before INXS crosses into the U.S. beginning July 17 in Washington state.  From there, the band plays 17 more U.S. shows, wrapping up Aug. 14 in Atlanta — although additional dates are promised. At least 11 of those U.S. shows will be opened by Berlin, according to that band’s website (see dates below).

Last fall, INXS released Original Sin, featuring re-recordings of the band’s classics with new vocals by the likes of Ben Harper, Rob Thomas, Tricky and even occasional frontman Fortune filling in for the late Michael Hutchence (more details here).

As for who will handle vocals on tour, INXS hasn’t said — and although Fortune has been singing with the band lately, he’s conspicuously absent in the band’s new press shot.
