Where are you seeing them ? I've got tickets to the Mayan show in LA and the Kimmel outdoor concert next week. And Pomona next month.

Pitchfork: David Lynch to Direct Duran Duran Webcast

I couldn't think of a combination more bizarre than this one.

I've got tickets to the Jimmy Kimmel show as well. Plus Coachella. Yay!

I really, REALLY wanted to go to that Mayan show, but I don't have an AmEx card. And I can't go to the Pomona show because we have to check in to our condo for Coachella by 3:00 p.m. that day.


(As a side note --AND PLEASE DON'T THROW TOMATOES AT ME-- : I'm also missing Janet Jackson in concert because of Coachella.

But Coachella will be AMAZING, so I am content with that. )

ThackerVille Oklahoma @ Winstar Casino!

Let me start by saying, im not really one to review concerts. Ive been to a few (u2, Chili Peppers, Depeche Mode, Killers, Collective Soul, Nixons, Reverend Horton Heat, Bangles, probably a few more i cant remember) but not as many as most people on here.

Im obviously a little biased, and i can almost judge a show by saying "there's U2, and then there's everyone else..."

So let me say this, if u2 is a "10" live then Duran Duran was a 9 or 9.5 last night. The only disappointment would be the absence of 'Hungry Like a Wolf' (setlist below). However the entire show was brilliantly performed from start to finish with the first track 'all you need is now' a great opener full of energy and sing/scream along with the crowd who probably doesn't even know the song all that well.

The classic hits like Rio, Girls on Film, Reflex, etc. probably got the biggest buzz from the crowd. But for me the standouts were easily (and surprisingly) 'Ordinary World' and 'Mediterranea'. The former of which Simon made mention of trying to find peace in the world, or something like that, the latter had something to do with the English being drunk on vacation and trying to annoy the Germans. Also, he said it was the first time they'd ever played it live and we were the first group to hear it! And then he added at the end "try not to drown"

Very nice. Im quite in awe of this band and they played an awesomely brilliant set. EVERY SONG, OLD OR NEW, WAS AWESOME AND SOUNDED AMAZING! My bladder was about to explode thanks to plenty of cheap beer and i had to run to the restroom during the encore and missed part of 'a view to a kill', That was about as ill-timed as the Elevation concert back in 2001 where i had to do the same thing and missed part of 'Bad' Damn low alcohol content in the cheap beer makes me drink more and more

Anyway i couldn't be more pleased with last nights show. my pictures sucked but i did take some nice videos and i got a cool t shirt. I hope this fabulous new album (Simon says, and i agree) takes off for them and they get around more and play more shows to more people.

They left us last night by saying "we'll see you down the road.." God i sure do hope so



Setlist:








All You Need Is Now
Being Followed
The Reflex
Notorious
Safe (In the Heat of the Moment)
Friends Of Mine
Leave a Light On
Ordinary World
Mediterranea
Girl Panic!
Careless Memories
(Reach Up For The) Sunrise

I am THRILLED to hear no Hungry Like the wolf or Come Undone. While I like the studio versions of those songs, they are TIRED when played live for us old Duranies.

I really hope they add Runway Runaway as it is by far my favorite song on the album. Now I've gone and gotten sick this weekend, so I sure hope I'm better by next week!

Well ive never seen them before last night, So 'hungry like the wolf' would have been nice

however im good because the show was amazing. They do have a really good stage presence.

I agree with Runaway Runaway and hope they play it.

But im here to tell you, if they play Mediterranea you are in for a treat
