Inxs Thrilled With New Reality Show Bid To Find Them A Singer

LATEST: The members of Aussie rock group INXS are thrilled with plans to find them a new singer as part of an American reality TV show.

SURVIVOR creator MARK BURNETT has joined forces with the NEED YOU TONIGHT rockers for his new TV project, ROCK STAR.

And INXS star TIM FARRISS admits it will be great to find a full-time replacement for tragic rock star MICHAEL HUTCHENCE after two false starts.

Farriss says, "After Michael died, we wanted to search the world for a new singer but didn't know how we could effectively do that.

"By having Mark and everyone at his production company embrace the concept, we've now found a fantastic way to make that happen."

Rock Star auditions will be held on five continents. The winner and INXS will record a studio album, the band's first since 1997's ELEGANTLY WASTED, and then head out on a world tour.

Farriss' brother and bandmate ANDREW FARRISS adds, "Burnett's record speaks for itself - he is an amazing producer and we are confident that together we are going to create something very different and very special."
