Duran Duran History – Universal Amphitheater

Duran Duran history for February 3rd has Rhonda recalling her very first time experiencing #Duranlive. On this date in 1989, Duran Duran played at the Universal Amphitheater (later renamed Gibson Amphitheater, which was torn down recently) at Universal City (Universal Studios), Los Angeles, California.  This date was included on their Big Live Thing tour.

My memories from the show include dressing up…because of course the band was going to see me from my seats in the very back of the theater, and the fact that I was astonished to hear how differently they sounded live (as opposed to the album).  Concert newbie – how little I really knew back then!!  I also remember feeling that somehow I’d really missed out because it was no longer “The Fab Five” up on that stage.  A feeling I would have to settle for until 2003.  Anyone else at this show?
