Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $7,690.80 (includes buyer's premium)


Lead singer of the band INXS, he committed suicide in a Sydney, Australia, hotel room in 1997. Hutchence’s personal passport, number N077797, issued by the country of Australia on December 23, 1981, with a December 23, 1986, cancellation date. Passport measures 3.5 x 5, and contains his personal information typed on the second page. The reverse of the first page bears his 2 x 2.25 color photo and is signed in the special signature area next to the photo, “M. Hutchence.” All 12 pages of the passport are stamped on both sides with entry stamps from countries including Australia, United States, New Zealand, Japan, France, the Philippines, Canada, Norway, and England. On the final page, his Australian address has been added in another hand. A Japanese commodities purchase receipt is stapled to one of the pages as well. In fine condition, with expected use and handling wear, several “cancelled” stamps to pages, and clipped right corners.

This passport was put into use very quickly, as INXS would tour New Zealand as the opening act for Cold Chisel. After the release of their next album, Shabooh Shoobah, and propelled by their first top 40 US single ‘One Thing,’ the band hit the road again, making their US debut in San Diego, supporting Adam Ant, in front of just 24 people. The band remained on the road for most of the year, and took part in New Wave Day at the US Festival in 1983. A very personal item from the talented front man as the band was approaching its commercial peak. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
