Jon StevensJon Stevens is hitting the road with a show jam-packed full of hits, hits and more hits. The Noiseworks & INXS Collection tour will showcase the best of Noiseworks’ smash hits and Jon’s favourite INXS songs, tracks which earned him a whole new fan base from his time fronting the band. Every song on the setlist is a smash radio hit and guaranteed to have audiences on their feet from the outset.

For the acclaimed singer-songwriter, the inspiration for the tour came from his fans themselves. Having just come off of the sold-out run of the Red Hot Summer Tour, Jon and his band played only the hits from his time in Noiseworks and INXS… and audiences went wild. “You’ve got 10,000 people just going bananas when you are playing those songs,” he says. “It makes you realise you have to keep playing them. People want to hear Noiseworks and INXS. My job is to make sure everyone has the maximum best time possible.”

Jon Stevens hasn’t really stopped working – touring, writing or recording – since he first started out in the industry as a young musician. Fast forward to the early 1980s and with five mates Noiseworks smashed onto the Australian airwaves with singles such as No Lies, Love Somebody, Take Me Back, Touch and In My Youth to name a few. They were the embodiment of what Aussie rock was and should be – hard-hitting, talented and they put on a bloody good show. Never one to rest on his laurels, Jon Stevens didn’t stop working when Noiseworks when on hiatus. He followed up with solo albums, multiple stints in stage productions such as Jesus Christ Superstar and earned world-wide acclaim taking centre stage with INXS. His next band – The Dead Daisies – stepped up that international reputation with the debut single Lock and Load written with and featuring the legendary Slash on guitar.

Over the years Jon always pulls out the Noiseworks classics on tour – the songs that get fans on their feet and rockin’. This tour is an exciting opportunity to also hear the great hits from INXS. “We have all grown up listening to those songs,” he says. “They are great songs and they should still be heard live. Andrew Farris came to one of our recent shows and told me I need to play more INXS songs. So, with his blessing, and the continual requests from fans, it is Noiseworks and INXS all the way. That is all you are going to hear, songs from your youth, and songs you grew up with – iconic songs from both bands.”

Whether touring with INXS, doing the festival circuit with Noiseworks, playing his own headline solo shows to packed houses, one thing has always been consistent with Jon, it is, and always will be, about the music. His hard work over the years has truly paid off, as Jon Stevens is considered one of the country’s premier artists and a legend on the live music scene.
