The album is the complete recording of Duran Duran's performance at the United Center Arena, a 23,500 capacity venue located at 1901 West Madison Street in Chicago, noted for being the home of the NBA's Chicago Bulls and NHL's Chicago Blackhawks.

Touring on the back of the TV Mania produced album Medazzaland, the band presented new work including their current single "Electric Barbarella". Duran Duran closed the show with "Rio".
