Eagle Vision Wants You To Re- "Live Baby Live" With INXS Once Again

Back in late-eighties and early-nineties, the Australian rock band INXS were on top of the world. They were riding a wave of success that was unmatched at that time, with back to back top five albums ("Kick" and "X"). The band's hit singles were everywhere on the radio and on MTV. To prove how big their popularity has grown, INXS performed a sold-out show at London's Wembley Stadium on July 13, 1991. It was the largest crowd that the band had ever performed for and it was captured in its entirety for the concert video "Live Baby Live." It was released on home video (VHS) and as a live album later that same year. Now, for its nearly 30th anniversary, Eagle Vision released a newly remastered version of the concert on DVD, Blu-Ray and 4K Ultra High Definition Blu-Ray for the first time.

The band specifically filmed this show for their first live release and both the band and the audience did not disappoint. It is certainly hard to top the intensity of the crowd during this 90+ minute performance. Not only will this new video release remind you how good this band was and how many hit singles they had, but it also shows how great of a frontman Michael Hutchence was. He stirs up the 70,000 plus audience with his elaborate, emotional stage antics during such classics as "Suicide Blonde" and "What You Need." The original video was cleaned up nicely for this new release, as close-ups and onstage camera work makes you seem that you could not get any closer to the band. The sound from the audience almost drowns out the band during the encore of "Never Tear Us Apart," before the night closes with the energy of "Devil Inside." A couple of nice additions to this video release is the lost footage of INXS' performance of the song "Lately" has been restored and also the studio track "Shining Star" plays during the credits.

If you need to remember how good INXS was, then this is a great place to start. They may be only second to Queen in demanding that size of an audience at the word famous Wembley Stadium, and this new video release proves it.
