Erasure chronology

Recorded at the London Arena on 11 December 1989 as part of the tour of their "Wild!" album and released in 1990 on VHS video,[1] Wild! (live) is Erasure's third concert video. With 23 tracks and a running time of almost 90 minutes, it is the first of Erasure's live videos to feature an entire concert, except in the US where a much abridged 15-track version was released. In 1992 the concert was also released in the US on LaserDisc, still with only 15 tracks. In 2016 it was announced that the video will be released on DVD, exclusively as part of the From Moscow To Mars box set.

The concert included 9 of the 10 songs from "Wild!", as well as songs from all 3 of Erasure's previous albums, songs from the "Crackers International" EP and a cover version of Cerrone's "Supernature", a studio version of which featured as a b-side on the "You Surround Me" single.
