I have no business going to Las Vegas in December. I should not be going to that Duran Duran concert on December 30th. Nope. It is completely not logical. The concert ticket was ridiculously expensive and the hotel room isn’t much better. On top of that, the flight is going to cost me an arm … Continue reading I Must Have Flowers in my Brain
I was busy waxing nostalgic over past fan conventions yesterday, so I didn’t get to write about Big Thing. The album was released 29 years ago yesterday, which is impossible.

(Let that be a warning—that’s right. Amanda has time. This is always dangerous.) One … Continue reading Duranies’ Touring Behavior

This tour took place between November 14, 1980 and January 4, 1981 in the UK, Ireland and Scotland. As always, … Continue reading Duran Duran Tour History – Hazel O’Connor
