Radio City Music Hall 1994 – Do You Remember?

On this date in 1994, Duran Duran played the first of four shows at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City as part of the Dilate Your Mind tour that began in Japan in December of the previous year.

Interestingly enough, the band had already had dates set to play Radio City Music Hall in October of 1993 during the No Ordinary tour but Simon lost his voice, and several of those shows, including these at Radio City Music Hall, had been postponed.  These shows/tours took place in support of their self-titled album that we fans fondly refer to as The Wedding Album.

After an online search, I found the setlist for this very show, which is always cool to look at 23 years later.

Too Much Information

A View to a Kill

Hungry Like the Wolf

Ordinary World

Skin Trade

White Lines

First Impression

Planet Earth

Come Undone

Love Voodoo

Girls on Film

Notorious

The Reflex

So, were you there for any of these shows?  Do you remember?

Duran Duran History: Bournemouth 1994

Today’s Duran Duran history takes us back 11 years to 1994 when Duran played at the Bournemouth International Centre in Bournemouth, UK.  This was the final date in the Dilate Your Mind UK Tour.

Interestingly enough, the setlist, from what I could find, was very short as you can see below:

Too Much Information
A View to a Kill
Hungry Like the Wolf
Ordinary World
Skin Trade
White Lines
First Impression
Come Undone
Love Voodoo
Girls on Film

If you attended this show, did they really only play 10 songs?  How was the show?
