In Concert is an unofficial Duran Duran remastered live album, released in Finland by the DD Fan Club during October 2010.

About the album[]

The album is an incomplete recording of Duran Duran's performance at the Apollo Theatre in Manchester, UK on 25 April 1989, during The Big Live Thing Tour.

After playing seventy nine shows in twenty countries, the tour returned to Manchester almost six months after it began in the city. Taking to the stage for the penultimate date of the tour, Duran Duran kicked off with "Big Thing".

After the much-loved "Hungry Like the Wolf", Simon Le Bon said "The band had been touring for six months and it feels like we've just warmed up." Duran Duran then delivered "All She Wants Is", a track mis-labeled on the album as "Palomino".

The recording was taken from a BBC Radio 1 broadcast featuring highlights from the show, which used the In Concert - 461 vinyl album. This recording was later released in September 2010 as the Big Thing: Special Editions (digital download).

Near the end of the show, band introductions were before "Save A Prayer". Then the band followed with a cover version of "Get It On (Bang a Gong)", a song originally recorded by British glam rock group T. Rex.

The album was released with a BBC Transcription sheet.
