INXS Debut New Singer Live
"I had the best night of my life singing with INXS in Peru. The band was on fire and the wonderful audience was so up for it—a truly awesome experience that I will cherish forever," said Gribbin. INXS performed for over two hours to the Peruvian fans rocking out to some of their greatest hits such as, "Mystify, Suicide Blonde, Need You Tonight and of course their latest release written by Andrew Farriss and Gribbin, Tiny Summer.
Gribbin's debut performance had fans flocking to the band's official Facebook page in admiration of the show.

Mr. Gribbin is an excellent singer and a very good performer," said Luis Fernando Quintanilla Bedrega, a fan who attended the show.
"You guys were amazing on stage tonight in Arequipa. Thank you so much for such a great show, and you'll continue to do great on this tour," said Andrea Denizot.
