Michael Hutchence's legacy remains messy, unresolved, but that's no obstacle to the legions of fans of the charismatic INXS frontman with the soaring voice, face of an angel and infinite sex appeal.
Many questions about his life, and shocking, premature death, remain unanswered but Live Baby Live ignores them in favour of celebrating what Hutchence and his band did best: belting out one after another of their extensive catalogue of hit rock songs in front of a huge, adoring crowd.
The show at London’s Wembley Stadium in July 1991 revealed the band at their peak ; road-hardened pros enjoying themselves and committed to delivering the finest musical experience they could to the 74,000-strong crowd.
Ever the showman, Hutchence works them into an ecstatic frenzy, and this film of the concert is likely to do that, in a minor key, to theatre audiences watching, summoning up the devil inside themselves, listening like thieves.
Palace Byron Bay offers the full entertainment experience, showcasing a mix of quality blockbusters, international and Australian art-house films as well as renowned film festivals. Their nine cinemas are fully licensed so you can take advantage of the curated drinks menu, including local Byron shire craft beers, premium wines and classic cocktails.
