"and honored former frontman Michael Hutchence for having a large role in their success."

probably the main role in their success, as after his death the band has been completely off the radar.

Ok. Some of their shit was good, but never cared too much of their 90's album. Anyways I liked years ago a song that they recorded with their new vocalis, otherwise they weren't something special.

Never Tear Us Apart was good too and the video for it was the first music video I remember myself watching during the '80s.

Disappear was decent too.

No kidding. Not even a headliner in their hometown or something? Apparently they don't take themselves seriously.
