Duran Duran's Oakland, California concerts that were filmed for the Arena (An Absurd Notion) movie were also edited to form the one-hour As The Lights Go Down concert video. The name comes from a lyric in the song "Shadows On Your Side" from the Seven and the Ragged Tiger album.

As The Lights Go Down is essentially the Arena video without the theatrical sequences, although the live footage for many songs was edited differently. This version was first aired on the Cinemax cable television channel, and later on MTV and other music channels. The concert was also shown on British television channel ITV, on 30 December 1984 at 1700 hours. At least two versions exist.

DVDs of the video frequently appear on auction sites. These are all bootleg recordings, as the program was never released on any consumer video media thus far. This is going to happen for the first time on DVD, as part of a reissue of the Seven and the Ragged Tiger album scheduled for release March 2010.[1]

Duran Duran's hit "Hungry like the Wolf" was featured in Rock Band 2. The track that was copied into the game, was the live version from as the lights go down.
