Storms Wash Out Inxs Performance

INXS lost out on an opportunity to show off their new frontman JD FORTUNE to fans in Hollywood last night (17OCT05), when rain washed out their rooftop show.

The rockers were set to perform at the opening of SIR RICHARD BRANSON's newest Virgin Megastore, but the storm proved so torrential it forced them to back out.

British entrepreneur Branson also cancelled plans to rappel from the side of the three-story Hollywood complex where his new store is located.

In addition, rooftop performances by bands GANG OF FOUR and DREDG fell by the wayside.

Branson explains, "There was like two feet of water on the roof and we didn't want anyone to get electrocuted."

But Branson still managed to entertain the crowd who'd braved the heavy rain, by parading onto a small stage with more than a dozen of his employees, all dressed like GUNS N' ROSES frontman AXL ROSE. Branson held an empty Jack Daniel's whisky bottle as he donned a blonde wig, headband and plaid skirt.
