Seven has announced its latest major in-house production – Michael Hutchence – The Last Rockstar – a world exclusive documentary event set to air ahead of the 20th anniversary of the death of Australian music legend Michael Hutchence.

“This is not Michael Hutchence defined by how he died but by how he lived: a brilliant musician, a brilliant man, a loving father, a true rockstar,” said executive producer Mark Llewellyn.

“This is not a biopic treading over old territory – this will make headlines around the world. New music, new revelations, and the most beautiful home video and insights from his closest friends and family, most of whom have never spoken publicly before.

“Michael left more questions than answers when he left us, and this documentary will provide those answers and much, much more.”

Following an extensive, two-year Seven News investigation spanning four continents and five countries, hidden bank vaults housing Hutchence’s prized treasures have been unlocked. The treasures inside include his final lyrics that were recorded but never released, and for the first time private photographs and family videos are revealed.

The documentary will also feature Michael Hutchence’s new songs, penned and recorded by the INXS star before his death but never heard…until now.
