    The offer to open for INXS is with Marty and the Lovehammers and they are still debating wheter to do it.

    Geez, what's to debate. They get enormous amounts of exposure in front of probably the biggest crowds they have ever seen, & may even gain a bunch of new album buying fans from it. I guess there is a downside, but I am hard pressed to find it. Everyone starts somewhere, I even saw Lynyrd Sklynyrd as an opening act to The Who, a couple of weeks before the release of their first album. I bet Ronnie & the boys didn't debate whether it would be a good thing to do that tour or not.

    Lovehammers confirmed opening act for INXS + Dates

    Marty Casey & The Lovehammers Confirmed to Open INXS Tour

    Tickets for Tour Go on Sale October 15 Weekend

    NEW YORK, Oct. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Marty Casey the runner-up on the TV show
    "Rock Star: INXS" -- has been tapped with his band, the Lovehammers, to open
    INXS' highly anticipated "Switched On" tour, which kicks off in January 2006.
    "Being the opening act is really the best possible scenario for me," Casey
    says. "I've been with my band for 15 years and now I get the best of both
    worlds."
    The 32 year old Chicago singer describes his band's performances as a
    "high energy, fast-paced, big-time rock and roll show." He knows it will have
    to be that and more in order to set the stage for INXS. "I want to get out
    there and get people excited," he says. "We have to work 15 times harder to
    get to the level that INXS bring on every night."
    It's the least he can do for the multi-platinum Aussie rockers, who not
    only gave Casey advice and encouragement on the TV show, but have offered to
    continue their counsel as the tour progresses. "It's the ultimate gift," says
    Casey.
    "Marty is a fresh edgy performer who is captivating," says Tim Farriss of
    INXS. "He's compelling to watch and listen to."
    Casey would like to have won the competition, but is happy about this
    latest turn of events, too. "I respect their decision," he says. "And I have
    more admiration for INXS by giving Marty Casey & the Lovehammers a chance.
    People are going to be blown away." The public is already responding. Casey's
    song "Trees" is the #1 download on MSN this week.
    For INXS, the success of "Rock Star" has also meant sales. Recently, "The
    Best of INXS" (Atlantic) reached #1 on Billboard's catalogue chart, and INXS'
    new single "Pretty Vegas," (Epic Records) hit #4 with over 20,000 downloads
    via iTunes. The band recently shot a video for the song with director Scott
    Duncan.
    Tickets for INXS 'Switched On' tour, which is produced nationally by
    Metropolitan Talent Presents, go on sale the weekend of October 15. Up-to-date
    tour information is posted at http://www.INXS.com.
    The tour begins on January 18, 2006 in Vancouver and will extend to more
    than 20 U.S. cities and two stops in Canada. INXS is Andrew Farriss
    (keyboards/guitar), Tim Farriss (guitar), Jon Farriss (drums), Kirk Pengilly
    (guitar/saxophone), Garry Beers (bass) and new lead singer J.D. Fortune.

    Jimi Hendrix opened for the Monkees. The Beatles played in Hamburg while strippers danced on stage. Everyone has their stories...

    I wonder how receptive the audience will be to the Loverhammers singing primarily Loverhammers songs...as opposed to singing INXS and the other songs Marty covered on the show. I'm guessing Marty will have a few solo moments of performing some of his most popular songs from "Rock Star."

    I'm sure Marty and his band are getting their best payday ever as well. I can't wait to see him January 25!

    There is a newish website - Martycasey.org- that he has very recently posted on, telling about who is now managing the Lovehammers, and there upcoming tour. It's really very good! When I have a little more time, I'll post a link.
    Go Tigers!

    I guess most of you know this but just in case you don’t Marty’s new album comes out tomorrow Jan. 24th. I tried to put up a shot of the album cover, but it wouldn't paste.

    Yes....I have listened to the whole thing on-line and it is great.

    I have L'Strange and Murder on My Mind, but I will be getting this one too.

    I saw it in Target this morning & really thought about buying it, but then I noticed Tress was on it. It's pretty goofy to not buy an album because of one song, but I hate that stupid song.

    Marty's album cannot be as bad as Switch, what a stinker the new INXS/JD album is.
