INXS Set To Release ‘Live Baby Live Wembley Stadium’ The Soundtrack
By Classic Pop | October 11, 2019
On 13 Saturday July 1991 INXS, one of the world’s most revered and iconic bands, delivered the gig of their lives at London’s Wembley Stadium to 74,000 ecstatic fans. After a decade and a half on the road the group was at the peak of their live powers and the performance that day shows they were now indeed a world-class stadium band.
The full seminal live show will be released for the first time internationally across 3LP Deluxe, 2CD and all digital formats 15 November. The stunning performance featuring hits Need You Tonight, New Sensation, Devil Inside, a previously thought ‘lost’ track Lately from the album X, and many more have been newly remixed by Giles Martin and Sam Okell at Abbey Road Studios.
The vinyl and CD formats feature unseen imagery from the show, new essays from the band, and sleeve notes by broadcaster and uber INXS fan Jamie East, who was in the crowd that day.
The film of Live Baby Live will also be in cinemas for the very first time. This masterclass in showmanship and musicianship has been painstakingly restored over a twelve-month period from the original 35mm negative to Ultra HD 4K. Now presented in cinematic 16:9 widescreen for this first ever theatrical exhibition, the original film was presented in 4:3 aspect ratio, but the restored version was created by shot-by-shot repositioning to get the best out of the frame.
