"I'm getting teary," said INXS drummer Jon Farriss on stage on Sunday night as the Australian rock group announced that their appearance as a support act for touring artists Matchbox Twenty at Perth Arena was to be their last ever performance as a group.

The band formed in Sydney 35 years ago.

PerthNow reports that Farriss delivered the emotional news before launching into their hit song Need You Tonight.

The news comes as a surprise, as 35-year-old Irishman Ciaran Gribbin - the latest singer to take the role of frontman for the band since the death of Michael Hutchence in 1997 - said in an interview with Fairfax recently that the band had big plans for the future.

"They're still creative, they're still hungry to prove they have something to say," said Gribbin. "They're also still hungry to perform those songs, the songs that were a part of so many peoples' lives growing up."
