Music lovers behold: Sunday nights host some of the greatest music legends of our time, with an eclectic mix of famous music events, in TVNZ Showcase’s new slot Live In Concert, 9:30pm Sundays on TVNZ 6.

The season kicks off on Sunday 2 December with legendary Aussie rock superstars INXS. Concert Live Baby Live is an electrifying event, filmed at the peak of INXS’s popularity. The show was shot with 16 cameras in front of 72,000 wild fans at London’s Wembley Stadium as part of their 1991 World Tour.
INXS’s celebrated vocalist, the late Michael Hutchence, is at his feral-romantic best, stalking and swivelling his way through an energised set of welterweight pop. Directed by award-winner David Mallet, the show features all their hits including New Sensation, Suicide Blonde, Never Tear Us Apart and Need You Tonight.

Other concerts feature Elton John, Simply Red, Ray Charles, Bon Jovi, Roy Orbison, and Cher.

One of the highlights of the Live in Concert slot is Johnny Cash – A Concert Behind Prison Walls. This features legendary performers, Johnny Cash, Linda Ronstadt and Roy Clark performing their greatest hits for the inmates of Folsom Prison.
