INXS to make restored ‘Live Baby Live’ Wembley concert film available to download

The film was screened in cinemas worldwide last year

INXS’ restored 1991 Live Baby Live concert film, shot at Wembley Stadium, will be available to download and purchase on disc next month.

The Live Baby Live concert film was screened in cinemas worldwide last year after it was restored from the original 35mm recording into a new, widescreen 4K Ultra HD version.

According to the film’s producer, Eagle Vision, the restoration process took 12 months to finish. During the restoration, a performance of ‘Lately’, presumed to be lost, was discovered and added into the film.

Last year, director Richard Lowenstein released ‘Mystify’, a documentary about INXS frontman Michael Hutchence. NME gave the production a four-star review, calling it an “intensely moving documentary” that “takes fans inside the life of a pop-rock maverick”.
