How Many Shows of the Overnight Sensation Tour (Dec. 5, 1999 to July 8, 2000) Did You See?

I am continuing to move backwards in time in the history of Duran tours to figure which tours were the most popular, the least popular, etc.  I started out with the most recent tour (All You Need Is Now) and now am on the Overnight Sensation Tour.  Until recently, I never knew that there was a tour with that title and I couldn’t tell you when it took place.  This was a short tour of only 14 dates and some unusual shows took place within it.  This tour that stretched from December 1999 to July 2000 included shows in Ireland, the UK, the US, Chile and Italy.  A number of these shows were not in usual venues either because they were festivals, were gigs for charity, or even private performances.  The full list of dates, locations and venues can be found here.

Like always, if you didn’t have a chance to vote in the previous ones, here are the links:

Pop Trash Tour  (July 2000 to February 2001)

The Up Close and Personal Tour (February 2001 to June 2001)

The Reunion Tour (July 2003 to December 2004)

The Astronaut Tour (January 2005 to July 2007)

 The Red Carpet Massacre Tour (October 2007 to October 2010)

The All You Need Is Now Tour (February 2011 to August 2012)

  1. no, I couldn’t attend any show.
    By the way of “unusual” places they performed in, I read somewhere they were scheduled to perform in a rodeo and they had to walk thru a “pond (worse than it… ahem)” to join the local stage.
    The 80s glam rock, where did it all end up?
