Billboard / Reuters Live from London DVD review

All press / news

ARTIST: DURAN DURAN ALBUM: LIVE FROM LONDON - "Live From London" captures the reunited fab five in fine form during its sold-out string of concert dates at London's Wembley Arena in spring 2004.

The 20-song set includes all the obvious hits, but also throws in fan favorite album cuts like the haunting "The Chauffeur" and "Night Boat." Some beloved singles sound even cornier now than they did way back when ("The Wild Boys") but others have aged marvelously. The already funky "I Don't Want Your Love" turns into a raw jam, while the frenetic show closer "Rio" is an extended funk throwdown. The DVD is also outfitted with an audio commentary from the band and an amusing and enlightening documentary. A deluxe edition includes "I Don't Want Your Love" in 3-D as well as an audio CD with 10 selections from the show.
