The British press dismissed the album, with New Musical Express calling the band 'INX-cusable' and a reviewer declaring Listen Like Thieves to be a 'complete and utter turkey'.[12] In the United States however Rolling Stone Magazine wrote "INXS rocks with passion and seals the deal with a backbeat that'll blackmail your feet."[32]

In August 1985, they toured ahead of the album's release, before touring South America before returning to Melbourne to played for Prince Charles and Princess Diana of Wales at a concert in Australia, it was filmed and later released on home video entitled Living INXS[33], an edited version of the concert was played on MTV in the US in 1985 on their Saturday night concert series. In November, December, January and February INXS toured North America, Europe and New Zealand. The band then took a two month break, with Andrew Farriss writing and producing "You're Gonna Get Hurt" for Jenny Morris (who had previously been a backing vocalist with the band[34]) and Hutchence featuring in Richard Lowenstein's second feature film Dogs in Space.[35] Lowenstein having previously made the video clip for "Dancing on the Jetty". Whilst a song from the movie, "Rooms for the Memory" written by Ollie Olsen, with vocals by Hutchence[36] charted, the movie was received well by critics but was not a commercial success.

In May 1986, the band returned to the United States and over the next six months performed 32 European shows, 42 US shows and 12 Australian shows. America's influential Musician magazine calling them "the best live band in the world."[12]
