Colin Steele, VMworld 2010
VMware has once again dug into the vaults for its VMworld band. This year’s headliners will be ’80s rockers INXS.
I had some fun with VMware last year after the company tagged Foreigner as the VMworld 2009 band, and I even embedded the cheesiest video I could find of their ballad “I Want to Know What Love Is.” The INXS announcement hasn’t really excited VMworld 2010 attendees, but there’s not much bad you can say about the band either. They had a bunch of hits (“Need You Tonight,” “What You Need,” “Never Tear Us Apart”), then their lead singer died and they found his replacement on a reality TV show. Typical rock band fare, really. I’m leaving VMworld before the concert, but if I were around, I’d at least consider checking them out.
INXS, the VMworld 2010 band, will play the VMworld Party on Wednesday, Sept. 1 at the Moscone Center.
