If anyone watched them on Leno tonight, someone might be asking Simon when Bono's going to call for his glasses back!

Huge fan, and in all honesty, I'm probably a bigger Duran fan than a U2 fan. After seeing both bands live though, I'd hold them on about an equal footing. Still great shows, though I have a feeling I never caught DD at their peak, whenever that was (perhaps during the reunion tour dates a few years back). Bought the CD today as well. Favorites so far are probably The Man Who Stole a Leopard, Girl Panic, Being Followed, and Too Bad You're So Beautiful.

Will be heading to the Minneapolis and Chicago dates in April myself. If any of you people are heading there too, let me know!

I also saw them on Leno last night and I was thinking "wow, Simon is sporting the Fly glasses." I liked them though.

They posted a thing on Facebook that they're rehearsing for the Unstaged show, and are rehearsing The Man Who Stole a Leopard with Kelis.



Dress rehearsal for Unstaged! Simon and Kelis belt out "The Man Who Stole a Leopard" while the production crew figures out how best to use their seven enormous cameras. Dress rehearsal gave everyone chills, it was so incredible. Make sure to tune into the livestream!

Last week was my first time, and all i could say was.....WOW

As for them hitting their peak, other than their early-mid 80's heyday or maybe 93, i don't know. I do say this new album is fantastic. I'm a bigger u2 fan than DD, but honestly, i cant remember the last time u2 put out a new album as good as "all you need is now". Certainly hasn't been this decade...and i like ATYCLB, HTDAAB, & NLOTH. Just saying!

If DD's new album isn't a "hit" or sell a lot of copies and produce at least one radio "hit" single, then the entire music business (mgmt, not the artists) needs to just fold up shop and call it quits.

I'm hoping they play 'man who stole a leopard' tonight. But i also got to say that 'mediterranea' is absurdly good live.

Well, I was basically one of those fans they picked up during The Wedding Album era. And I was 8 at the time! I picked up on songs they had in the 90s when they were played on the radio (including Electric Barbarella), and discovered their 80s output somewhere during my teen years. Eventually, I found out all those songs were by the same band, and I find myself here today! I practically grew up with them in a way, though I came aboard later on.

This is probably their most consistent album since Rio in terms of song quality. I'm not too big on some of the extra tracks added to the itunes release, but they have struck the right chord here. And most of the fanbase seems to be happy with it, so everybody wins here I guess.

Mediterranea did sound alright live, though even Leave a Light On did too from a video I saw from a TV performance recently. On top of that, the band is in rehearsals with Kelis for the Leopard song, so they should be playing that tonight. 14 minutes!

nice, trevgreg! i became a fan in 96 the same way you did, finding out all these awesome songs were the same band. i loved new moon on monday growing up, i'd always thought it was david bowie.

can't wait to hear what this stuff sounds like live!

Hey! I'm with Cori, so be nice now! (Except I was 8 instead of 10.)

DD was MY before U2. I knew all the debut album singles, but I really fell hard when "Rio" came out. I can't tell you how many times I used to listen to 'Hold Back The Rain' and 'New Religion'.

And don't even get me started on the 'Save A Prayer' video.
