Duran Duran History: Formel Eins

Today’s Duran Duran history takes us back to 1984 when the band was completing a lot of promotion on their album, Seven and the Ragged Tiger.  Some of this promotion included TV shows like the German TV chart show Formel Eins.  In this case, the band lip-synched a performance of Union of the Snake.  Since the band was actually in Japan on this date, it is likely that the performance was filmed sometime in late 1983.

I was able to find a clip of this performance:

One thought on “Duran Duran History: Formel Eins”

  1. Everybody looks excited and even look like “dancing” apart of course Roger,
    Simon in the beginning looks the one quietest one. hen he becomes the frontman I love: he actually does the “air- sax.”.
    As of Andy, he had to update the catalogue of dance moves .. LOL!
    The strain and the frustration after the recording sessions for that album are on all of their faces.
