About the albumEdit
The album is a recording of Duran Duran's performance at the NEC Arena, a 16,000 capacity venue located adjacent to Birmingham International Airport. The concert was the fourth of thirteen UK dates performed on the tour.
This was a home coming show, held in the city where the band were part of the New Romantic scene of the 1980s. It was also the only Christmas Eve date that Duran Duran have ever performed on during a tour.
Opening act J.J. Slick began the evening early at 7:30pm, so fans could get home by public transportation before the Christmas Day shut down at midnight.
