What are YOU going to be doing on Wednesday, September 3rd?! We all know that Duran Duran will be playing at a private show for Madza as the company unveils the Mx-5 Miata in Monterey, California. While the vast majority of us couldn’t be there, we won’t be totally missing out! Oh no, the highlights, at least, will be aired on Madza’s YouTube channel. Details as well as a link to the YouTube channel can be found on duranduran.com, which you can read about here. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m absolutely dying for a show, for a performance, for something. It has been WAY, WAY TOO LONG. Thus, I will take any and all highlights they will share!!!
Obviously, Rhonda and I knew that we could all just watch the highlights by ourselves. This led to us envisioning each and every Duranie alone in front of the computer screen, longing not only Duran Live but also their friends. While I’m sure that every Duranie out there would be mildly entertained by watching the highlights all alone, we know that it would be tons more fun if we all watched the highlights together!!! Of course, we all can’t be in the same room at the same time, but we can all be online together at the same time! We did it for the Sing Blue Silver viewing on Duran Duran Appreciation Day! So, how would this work? Simple. We all tune into Madza’s YouTube channel at 6 pm PST (or 8 pm CST or 9 pm EST, etc): https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0Ihuy4gj2w-AYEQXRnUdUA. As we watch, we will discuss, react, *squee* online with each other!
While we will all be watching the YouTube channel, we will be doing the fan reaction thing in a couple of places. First, if Twitter is your preference, then, it is simple. Tweet out your thoughts, but make sure that you are using the hashtag #DDMadza so we can all find the tweets about the highlights! Second, if you prefer Facebook, the best place to discuss/react/squee is on the event page. Yes, that’s right. We have an official event page for this little viewing party, which you can find here. I’m sure that Rhonda and myself will be splitting duties as we did for the Sing Blue Silver viewing party. One of us will be on Twitter and one on Facebook. Yet, if we feeling ambitious, we might try to hit both online places. Ha! The key here is simple. We want to make this event super fun for all of us dying-for-a-show as we know that watching Duran is great but watching with other fans is the BEST. Beyond that, though, we would love to get Duran trending like we did for Duran Duran Appreciation Day. Let’s help to remind the world that not only is Duran is still around but they are still kicking ass.
Between now and Wednesday, we ask you to do a couple of favors. First, go to that Facebook event and RSVP. The link is: https://www.facebook.com/events/277931022416579/?notif_t=plan_user_joined.
After that, share the event with all of your friends both on Facebook and on Twitter so that they, too, can join and share away! We would love to have all 2.5 million fans of Duran Duran on Facebook attending and participating! (Now, I know that for some of you the time of the event sucks. We hate that it isn’t good for everyone. Unfortunately, we have no control over the time.)
Let’s remind each other of the fun we have together and let’s show the world that Duranies mean business when it comes to helping Duran be successful!
