INXS are offering fans the chance to attend a special premiere of the forthcoming, 30th anniversary, Dolby Atmos® -enhanced edition of their seminal sixth album Kick.
Beginning at 6pm (AEDT) local time, the special event will be held at the Event Cinemas in George Street, Sydney, Australia, on 24 October and it offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to hear Kick for the first time like never before in the band’s home country. The evening will also include a Q&A with special guests, producer Giles Martin and INXS’s Andrew Farriss, and with stars in the room and music everywhere, it will surely be a night to remember.
Due for release on 3 November 2017 and housed in glorious DVD size “fan-deluxe” packaging, the 30th-anniversary edition of Kick extends previous editions with additional B-sides, rare mixes and bonus tracks over three CDs. In addition, it will feature the album mixed in Dolby Atmos® by producer Giles Martin and Sam Okell at Abbey Road Studios. This new mix appears on a Blu-ray disc along with all the promo videos. Dolby Atmos® is an immersive sound technology that delivers the best listening experience on any device with a new dimension of clarity, fidelity and space.
“You can hear this album like never before,” says Giles Martin of the new Dolby Atmos® mix of Kick. “You can hear Michael [Hutchence] so close to you, you can hear his breath. You feel like you’re in the studio with the band. You have a record that’s 30 years old, but it’s been taken in a completely new direction and you can listen to it in a completely new way and it becomes new again. Great music and great songs, they don’t get old.”
Originally formed in 1977, INXS’ career spans an extraordinary 40 years, during which they have sold over 40 million records worldwide, including No.1 albums in four different continents. Delivering an avalanche of hits including ‘Need You Tonight’, ‘New Sensation’, ‘Never Tear Us Apart’, ‘Devil Inside’ and ‘Mystify’, Kick sold over six million copies worldwide and made INXS one of the biggest bands on the planet.
