By the way, if anyone is interested here is the set list from their first show the other night in Japan. The sheer fact that they are playing New Religion is worth the ticket price right there.

*dies at the thought of knowing I will hear the most perfect rhythm section of Roger and John Taylor in one week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FRIENDS OF MINE
HUNGRY LIKE THE WOLF
PLANET EARTH
COME
UNDONE
WHAT HAPPENS TOMORROW (new)
NEW RELIGION
VIRUS (new)
WHITE LINES
WAITING FOR THE NIGHTBOAT
STILL BREATHING (new)
SAVE A PRAYER
ORDINARY WORLD
A VIEW TO A KILL
REACH UP FOR THE SUNRISE (new)
NOTORIOUS ~ WE ARE FAMILY
WILD BOYS
CARELESS MEMORIES
RIO

encore:
THE REFLEX
GIRLS ON FILM

WOW! They even played "Friends of Mine" & "Waiting For The Nightboat." Holy shit, I luv those songs! Kinda surprised to see them playing White Lines, but oh well. There are much better tunes they could've played instead.

agreed. if it's half as good as it was when they used to play it, then omigor.

as for the new gig, a lot of people are PISSED. this show is cheaper and is before the costa mesa gig. a lot of people shelled out big bucks to travel to california to see them play (the tickets were really expensive because you got fair tickets too i believe), and now this much cheaper gig comes along. of course, you'd have to change your travel plans to see this one, so everyone's stuck. they're just being so damn unorganized about these dates, just tossing them around and announcing them when they feel like it.

oh, and while i love the looks of the japan setlist, i'm ticked that they ignored all their post-1985 content, save two tired songs off of the wedding album. there may be more to this like andy could be refusing to play a lot of the later material or something, but this setlist just makes them look like they're doing one of those cheapo reunion tours you saw other 80s acts do in the late 90s. it's also kinda insulting to the fans who've stuck by them through thick and thin, the few who would still call themselves fans when liberty came out. to ignore notorious, big thing, liberty, medazzaland, and pop trash...it's an insult.

however, i'm thrilled to see some of the choices they made in songs. friends of mine? new religion? night boat? they could've only made it better had they played secret oktober. but at least i got to hear that song when i saw them in 2001.

btw, this and the other japan gigs will be available for sale (i forget the website) on cd. it'll be interesting to listen to, as i've only heard "what happens tomorrow" (a studio version, not from this concert).

The Roxy is an incredible place to see bands! If it hasn't changed any, it's a small nightclub, maybe 300 capacity. 25 clams to see a band there is cheap, too!

Yes, I know a lot of people are pissed and I'm not fond of the way DD announced their OC and Vegas shows. BUT, in their defense, I have to say that the ROXY show would have provided VERY FEW fans with tickets as opposed to the OC show. The OC show is sold out, and I believe it seats a total of 19,000. The Roxy seats maybe 300 people. The Roxy is pretty much there for up and coming bands. When a band of DD's stature plays the roxy ( or any other established band), more than usual it's an industry thing and many times the general public arent' even given a chance to get tickets.

One thing that does piss me off is that KROQ is advertising this ROXY show like everyone is going to get tickets! That pisses me off because now every yahoo in town in going to be in line come next Monday for tickets!!!

My own personal hunch is that this is a marketing tactic to drum up interest and generate more hype for a more lucrative record deal. ( they need one , you know...)

There's also a certain cache to the Roxy. Big names used to play there back in the day. Try to get tickets if you want to go; it should be great!

Thanks. I am going to try and get tickets. I'm just not going to get my hopes up. I'm going the next night in OC so all hopes not lost!

I rather liked "Liberty." I know noone else did. It has one of my fave "newer" DD songs: My Antarctica. and also Serious.

i liked most of it. i can listen to it all the way through, i don't hate anything enough that i must run to the stereo to turn it off on that album, and most fans like the album now, at least where serious and my antarctica is concerned.

the two albums that some fans seem to not like at first and then get into a couple years later are liberty and medazzaland. i can't really understand how anyone would need to take a while to get into the beauty that is medazzaland, but oh well.

CAn I be honest? I don't even own Meddazland. I KNOW! I love "Electric Barbarella" though. Maybe I should go pick it up today. What's it comparable to?

wow! i look at it kinda like U2's pop. it's sort of a departure from their previous works, it's a bit more dark and it's more electronic than their older stuff. but i love it to death.

oh, and they did "stuck" before U2 did. simon wrote a song about michael hutchence on that album (look at the track listing, it's easy to figure which song it is) about his life and such. they had a concert on the night he died and he sang the song as a tribute to him.

btw, with all this talk of medazzaland, i had to give it a listen.

and for any fans reading this, you may be happy to hear about their first dvd release:

DURAN DURAN: GREATEST DVD is coming in September. We will fill you in as we know more:

DVD 1:

1. Planet Earth *
2. Girls On Film (Long uncensored version) *
3. The Chauffeur
4. Hungry Like The Wolf
5. Save A Prayer
6. Rio
7. Is There Something I Should Know?
8. Union Of The Snake *
9. New Moon On Monday (E.P Version) *
10. The Reflex
11. Wild Boys (Long Arena Version) *
12. A View To A Kill

DVD 2:

2. Skin Trade
3. I Don't Want Your Love
4. All She Wants Is
5. Serious *
6. Burning The Ground
7. Ordinary World
8. Come Undone (Uncensored version) *
9. Electric Barbarella

This DVD also contains alternate versions of the videos marked * along with interview footage, EPK's, Le Galerie De Duran and a DVD-ROM section.

DVD-ROM Section contains:

Weblink to the official Duran Duran website
Is There Something I Should Know? - 40 odd minute audio only question and answer session recorded with Nick and Simon 1999

Photo Gallery - featuring over 80 images from throughout the band's career

Lyrics to all songs featured on the DVD

A screen saver and wallpapers

All audio will be remastered LPCM stereo

so i'm curious to find out about these alternate versions. i've got every version of every duran duran video in existence (seriously! it's about 12 hours long when you factor in the solo stuff, power station, and arcadia) and i can't figure this out. is there an even longer, more obscene (by mtv's standards, not mine) version of girls on film in existence? i'm wondering if the version of new moon on monday is the 15 minute one i've got. i didn't know there was an uncensored version of come undone.

don't you know i'll have this baby pre-ordered on amazon.com so it can be in my mailbox the day it's released!
