Game Day Thursday!!

Tomorrow, Duran Duran plays their first show in 2012.  Am I the only fan that gets excited by this?  I’m not going to be at that show or any show that has been announced (so far).  Yet, I still get all giddy when I think about them playing shows!  I love that fans will get to see them (even if I’m not one of them!).  I can’t wait to hear about how the show was!  In fact, I’m sure that I’ll be checking their official website, facebook and twitter to see what the setlist was.  John had a bit of a tweetfest yesterday and he said that they were going to stick with the same setlist with some “variations”.  I want to know what that means!!!  Another place I will be searching will be youtube to see what, if any, clips get posted.  This way, I’ll feel like I’m part of the show, too, in a very small way.  All of this will increase my anticipation over other dates being announced!  After all, as part of John’s tweet-a-thon, he mentioned that they were for sure going to Madrid this summer.  I’m anxious to find out where else they plan to go!!  For me, shows mean that the band is still alive and well.  It shows that they are busy working and doing what they do best, playing live.  Thus, today’s game has the theme of Duran shows.  It is a crossword.  I hope you all enjoy it!!!


**Rhonda adds: Today marks our 500th post!!!!  That calls for serious celebration…so I’m gonna go have some coffee and try to stay awake!!!  Cheers, everyone!
