It's weird. I kind of got into Duran Duran after their big run in the early to mid 80's. In 1989, they released Decade, a compilation of their biggest songs from the decade of the 80's. After buying the CD, I got into them a lot more and appreciated them for being more than just a pop band. In 1993, when they were touring for The Wedding Album, I got the chance to see them twice. The first show was at The Academy in NYC. The place was kind of small so it was great seeing the guys up close. I had an awesome time. The 2nd show was at Jones Beach in Long Island, NY. They had a good show there too. Terrence Trent D'Arby opened for them. He was cool too.

My best friend got us tickets to the Vancouver show in the pre-sale today!

Never got a chance to see them back in the day, but I'm looking forward to catching them this time around!

it's odd.. why aren't the dates after 5/21 listed on ticketmaster? I thought the general sale for at least the Columbia, MD show which is on 5/27 would be listed by now.

And I think it was more recent than '03.
It was March '05 (I know b/c I was there). And it was a FANTASTIC, GREAT SHOW!

That was my 3rd DD concert, my 1st being in 1986 on the "Nortorious" tour (which was my 2nd concert overall. I would've been about 11 or 12 years old. ). They're really great live.

I don't know if I'm going to make it to any of these current dates, but that gig at The Joint in '05 was off the f***n' hook!!!!

ugh, i can't go see them this tour. my mom, who's almost as much of a fan as me, is having surgery right when they'll be coming to our area. and the cities they'll be coming to around us all require flying, so yeah.

i'm optimistic though, with astronaut they came back a second time and toured the states. i'm sure they'll do that again this time. although it's a bummer because with astronaut i got to see them three times (once on the first leg, twice on the third leg). oh well
