**special appearance on “Notorious” by Beth Ditto from The Gossip

One significant part of the show was the appearance of Beth Ditto, known for her voice as part of the group, Gossip.  This was not her first appearance with Duran as she also performed “Notorious” with them for the Unstaged show in March of 2011.
Like many shows of recent years, there are a number of clips on YouTube.  I am including one of Save a Prayer.

Today in Duran History – Argentina

On today’s date just a mere two years ago, Duran Duran played at Luna Park in Argentina.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but even though I know this was just two years ago at this point – it seems like so long ago now.  While I might be ready to consider the idea of going to some shows again, I suspect that the band has other plans given that there’s no end date in sight for the new album to be released…may as well get comfortable in those easy-chairs, I suppose!  🙂

Today’s Date in Duran History – Perth 2012

It is hard to believe that two years ago, we were reading postcards from the band while they were touring Australia in support of All You Need is Now.  I can remember seeing pictures of band members basking in the sun on a boat and having “such a rough time” touring.  Because it’s really hard having to remember to put on sunscreen and enjoy the day on the water, you know.  It’s HARD to be a rock star, right??  That just seems like it happened a few weeks back, not two years!

Where does the time really go?!?  On this date in 2012, they were in Perth, playing in Swan Valley.  Who was there??
