INXS says J.D. Fortune wasn’t fired, could have been asked back for future tour

J.D. Fortune’s claim that he was fired as INXS’ lead singer is untrue, a band representative said.

“Not only are we shocked by the claims, even the place the supposed incident was to have taken place is a mystery to the band,” Chris Murphy told the Daily Telegraph, referring to J.D.’s claim that he was fired in an airport.

Murphy, the band’s “creative director and global business strategist,” according to the paper, said that INXS may have used Fortune on its next tour or for recording projects, but probably won’t now, which implies that his time on the 23-month tour was the only thing he was contracted for.

“The band have always stated to me that Fortune’s services could potentially be contracted again when INXS next tour. In fact he was next on my list to call regarding a very big recording project I am putting together for INXS at present. I guess I have no reason to call him now,” Murphy said.
