That Time INXS Gave Michael Hutchence A Stripper For His Birthday

Celebrating his big day

That Time INXS Gave Michael Hutchence A Stripper For His Birthday Youtube

Today marks what would have been the 58th birthday of the late, great Michael Hutchence.

As we do in a radio station, we pretended we were working when we were really looking for old INXS clips to celebrate the memory of the great man.

We found this... it's actually next level.

On January 22, 1991, at the height of their powers, INXS played a gig at the legendary River Plate... to commemorate what was then Hutchence's 31st birthday, 60 thousand or so partying Argentinians sang Hutchence a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday.

Of course, for the ardent fans, there's more of a celebration later on in the show... in the form of a topless girl bringing out a massive cake with 31 candles on it... obviously.

We've chosen not to show it here - but if you skip through to 1 hour 43 minutes... you'll see it in its full glory.

Back in the day, we guess?

Wherever you are, happy birthday Hutch!
