The tour begin in January of 2005, despite having played a few gigs at the end of 2004. The band played a show in UK before moving to North America for the spring. The summer saw shows in Europe, the U.S., and Japan. The band returned to the UK around Christmas. Then in 2006, the band played in different cities in Europe before a doing a mini-tour of the U.S.
This album represents a significant time in Duran’s history. The reunion that many of us longed for and never thought we would see come to fruition. A lot of fans, including myself, jumped back in. It began the second half and most significant part of my fandom. I toured for the first time, really, and saw many shows. I also made many friends. It was a fun time! My whole story will come next week. Until then, I would love to read your stories surrounding this album!
