Former INXS Front Man links U.F.O. sighting over Adelaide Convention Centre

An unidentified flying object was spotted over the Adelaide Convention Centre at approximately 7pm last night, puzzling pedestrians who had stopped on the bridge to observe it.

Former INXS front man, Ciaran Gribbin, weighed in on the argument today stating,
‘’It was definitely something from out of this world,’’ 

‘’In exactly eleven weeks today I am performing at the Variety Annual Themed Ball in the very venue above which the phenomenon was sighted,’’ he said.

“The irony is, the ball has a space theme, so the sighting is very fitting,’’ said Ciaran.

The event, Adelaide’s largest private function and arguably the city’s most fun filled annual ball, is preparing for a record turnout on Friday June 17 at the Adelaide Convention Centre, with more than 1,500 people having purchased tickets to the event and numbers expected to top 2,000.

With this year’s theme being “Variety – out of this world,’’ the room will be decked out with everything from a 8m high by 3m wide rocket which will take off during the night (complete with lunar landing), a corner of the room devoted to a fun take on the solar system and planets which will include a 3m x 3m saucepan, a large Pluto and some Milky Ways.   

Guests will enter the room via a dark entrance with flashing lights and be entertained by Audio Box and Platinum Plus as well as the INXS band, who will fly in from Melbourne for the occasion.

They will enjoy a three course dinner and drinks and meet Storm Troopers and other Star Wars characters.
Last year’s ball raised $290,000 (net) and since its inception in 2002, the Variety Annual Themed Ball has raised more than $2.2 million (net) for South Australian children in need.
