INXS fans can rejoice over the release of this buoyant concert film, shot during an ecstatic performance before 72,000 hopping fans in London's Wembley Stadium on July 13, 1991. The Australian band's vocalist, the late Michael Hutchence, is at his feral-romantic best, stalking and swiveling his way through an energized set of welterweight pop. The show starts with a big, boomy "Guns in the Sky," takes a turn toward unexpected soulfulness with "New Sensation," and spreads the wealth with a sharp set of ballads and rockers. Hutchence has fun with a naughty "Know the Difference," plays around with a Jagger-esque take on confessional soul in "The Loved One," and milks "Never Tear Us Apart" for all it's worth. The band sounds more muscular than they did in the studio, hard-charging and rough on "Suicide Blonde," drunk on a jazzy guitar hook in "Need You Tonight," and completely danceable on "Bitter Tears." --Tom Keogh

Most of the songs played are from Kick and X, so it's a bit of a bummer that more of their older, harder rocking hits from Shabooh Shoobah, The Swing, and Listen Like Thieves are not included in the set. I've been a longtime fan since 1983, finally seeing them at The Greek Theater in L.A. on the Listen Like Thieves tour. This DVD concert was pretty much at their career apex in 1991, filling Wembley Stadium to the hilt, with Hutchence appearing in good form with a strong voice and great energy on stage, before the later times when he got sloppy from the booze/drugs habit and more full of himself. This is the way I want to remember him and INXS.
Such a professional performance,"The Live Baby Live concert is packed full of great music, and it's clear that INXS is having a great time, too. They are relaxed, a bit playful, especially lead singer Michael Hutchence, but the focus is always squarely on their music, without any distracting theatrics.
The playlist is all their best, from "Guns In The Sky" to "Devil Inside" with all points in between classic INXS.
Hutchence is 100% riveting frontman, constantly prowling the stage, oozing sex appeal, just doing his thing. Sort of a Jim Morrison clone in my opinion.
"The death of Michael Hutchence in November 1997 had a profound impact on the members of INXS, who had been close friends and collaborators for two full decades. The future for the band was very much uncertain." Determined, dedicated and sure-footed, INXS continues to propelled themselves forward today.
We miss you Michael. Wish you were here.
In addition to the concert there are other features, band interviews, photo gallery, a behind the scenes look on concert day leading up to the show, plus a band commentary on the concert itself which is really a hoot.
All in all if you are a fan of INXS or of concert DVD's in general be sure to snatch this one up. I recently saw INXS in concert and they still sound great live, glad I finally got the opportunity to witness that myself. But this is the band at their best, don't pass this up.
The song selection is great. From "Guns in the Sky" to "Devil Inside," there is so much exhilarating fun and raw excitement to be had. The song list includes: Guns in the Sky, New Sensation, Send a Message,The Stairs, Know the Difference, Disappear, By My Side, Hear that Sound, Original Sin,The Loved One, Wildlife, Mystify, Bitter Tears, Suicide Blonde, What You Need, Kick, Need You Tonight, Mediate, Never Tear Us Apart, Who Pays the Price, and Devil Inside.
Each number sounds even better than the recorded version.
There are extras, too! There's a documentary, band commentary, band interviews, backstage footage, a photo gallery, and more. This is a great DVD, simply sensational!!!
The video is crisp, clear, sharp, you name it.... it's just a sight to behold. The sound is incredible, especially played through a nice set of surround sound speakers mounted on the walls. INXS paid for this video and the profits from the concert were about equal to what it cost to film this thing. But it was worth every dime (to use anyway) because not only did they catch the band at their best, the did so with the best video equipment out at the time, and it shows.
If you like INXS you will LOVE this DVD. If you like concert films this will wind up being one of your all-time favorites. And, if you have never heard INXS before, or seen them, this is the DVD that will make you a fan.
All concert DVD's should be this good, unfortunately most aren't. INXS fans will cherish this DVD for a lifetime....
