Editorial Reviews

Limited edition double disc (DVD/CD) release. Live At Hammersmith '82 is a much anticipated release among followers of the band. Previously unreleased, it will come as a double DVD and CD pack, allowing fans to both enjoy the visual spectacle of the concert and CD audio, too. Filmed and recorded in the latter part of 1982 as Duranmania was sweeping the UK, the performance at London's Hammersmith Odeon includes 'Rio', 'Hungry like the Wolf', 'Girls on Film', fan favorite 'Make Me Smile (Come Up and See Me)' and more. The release also includes 'Rio' era videos and two previously unreleased 'Top of the Pops' performances.

This concert was shown on MTV back in 83 when Duran were at their height of popularity. You could see it if you had recorded then and if you still had a VHS player and the tape lasted 25 years. The concert is awesome to see after all of this time, but it is the extra Top of the Pops that had me really excited. I had not seen these performances before and so it was a real delight, not to mention, as a bonus Duran has "Rio" era videos included. This is not anything of consequence EXCEPT that they included the video for LONELY IN YOUR NIGHTMARE which has only ever been seen on the Duran Duran video album(also only available on VHS). I have no idea when the record company will release a complete videography but this was a pleasant surprise. The packaging was perfect. They included excerts from the 1982 concert booklet with pictures of the band. Overall, perfect packaging, product was superb. I can't fault the recording of the concert. It was over 25 years ago.

This DVD is a must for any true Duran Duran fan. BUT ... it is obviously an un-remastered copy of a VHS video recording. You can see those white VHS tracking lines running through the image pretty regularly. Still, the band puts on a great show. And it is a blast to see them in their prime. So I give this a thumbs up. It's just too bad the folks at EMI didn't remaster the video for DVD. I mean, it's not like this is a budget line release.

Duran Duran's 'Live at Hammersmith '82!' is the recently released DVD recording of their famous concert held at the Hammersmith Odeon on November 16 1982. The DVD was released by EMI Records on the 21st of September 2009 (October the 6th in the U.S.A) as a CD/DVD double pack.

Not only does this DVD contain the entire concert, it also contains all six videos made for tracks off the 'Rio' album, as well as two archived 'Top Of The Pops' performances.

This is a great CD/DVD collection, and a must-have for any Duran Duran fan.
I highly recommend it, and therfore give it a 5 out of 5.

Someone is going to mention the lighting or the audio. Those aspects are not perfect. Duran Duran magic will have you hookedstarting at the third song Night Boat and you never even think about lighting or sound. Just the joy of being young and watching this amazing talent, this amazing band reminding you why the 80's was so much fun!

I hadn't bought an actual CD in years, but this one is worth it. The DVD is great too, the video isn't perfect, but heck, it's from '82. Lots of nice tv appearance extras. But the CD--it is just the best. You get more of a feel for the excitement of the live show than you do with the overproduced Arena, plus Andy just absolutely cuts loose on many songs. It's a shame after this his role was cut back so much on Seven and the Ragged Tiger.

The cover of "Make Me Smile" is so much more awesome in the context of the live album, between fantastic versions of Careless Memories and Girls on Film. Even the stage banter is pretty fun: "This song demands audience participation, and by that I mean dance!" Who else but Simon LeBon could say something that corny and have it come off cool?

I read some reviews about the quality of this dvd/cd while I was waiting for it to arrive, and just had horror images implanted in my mind... visually on the dvd...(the cd was just like norm...) the dvd had only very minor defects that I noticed on my 10th or 60th viewing... this was from 1982 and the picture is not going to be completely flawless due to the difference in technology today verses 1982... but it is nearly flawless... a few snow flakes big deal..

I hope Simon gets well soon... and can't wait for the entire band to be able go and do one of the things they do best... play live the other being record new music... speaking of "All you need is now" is really an amazing CD. Hope you like it too...

Side note (updated): On my LG Blu-Ray player, I am not able to access the Rio era videos nor access the Audio options menu. (Only a stuck white screen comes up for both.) I can access the video selection on other devices, though.

I absolutely love the concert. It is fantastic and even better than I hoped it might be. What energy! What great performances! Unfortunately, I can't watch the music videos on my primary system, which is half of the reason I bought this.

And the videos are great to have together here. "The Chauffeur" is a lovely piece of music video cinema!

Also, having the CD version of the concert is a great treat and features great sound.

FINALLY!!! Duranies will be so thrilled for this one (I have hoped & dreamed for this one for over 25 years)!!! This is a wonderful concert featuring "The Fab Five" in all there "RIO" era best!!! If you never got a chance to see it-BUY THIS!! True Duranies will be in Heaven!!! I think everyone's favorite part is their cover version of "Make Me Smile (Come Up and See Me)" originally done by Cockney Rebel. This is a fantastic performance & I can't wait until Septemeber to get my hands on this one!!! ROCK ON DURANIES!!!
