The album was recorded on May 30, 2000, in London, England, at the world-famous live entertainment venue Wembley Arena. It was selected by the band as one of 18 "Ape/Man" shows from the tour, which, according to bassist Jeff Ament, were shows the band found "really exciting."Allmusic gave it three out of a possible five stars. Allmusic staff writer Steven Jacobetz said it is "the best show thus far on the tour five shows in. However, in the big picture, a concert which is not one of the best of the European tour and not essential." It debuted at number 137 on the Billboard 200 album chart.
