Australian rockers Inxs were forced to cut short a concert in Pennsylvania on Sunday after a rainstorm blew out their sound system.
The Need You Tonight hitmakers were four songs into their set at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs casino when the sky opened up and strong gusts blew rain onto the stage, soaking the electric sound board.

The band stayed behind to chat to fans and sign autographs, but the gig will not be rescheduled.

A spokesperson for the venue explains, “Unfortunately, the band’s sound board shorted out, and INXS was forced to cancel the rest of the show. The band members felt bad and were very cordial to audience members that stayed around hoping for the best.”
