We used to play a game on my old DD message board called “Things Nick Rhodes would never say”. As follow ups, we also had games like “Things Nick Rhodes would never wear”. I can remember wickedly cackling out loud as I tried my hand at coming up with the most outlandish ideas.
Today’s item for this date in Duran history would have EASILY been one of those things I never thought I’d hear of the band doing. On today’s date in 2001, Duran Duran played the Houston Rodeo.
I’ll just let that sink in for a second. It’s still early my time and I’m not even done with my first cup of coffee. That’s right – the band known for champagne, yachts and models actually played a rodeo, and lived to tell about it. Maybe this was a particularly glitzy sort of rodeo.
Bonus Duranie points* will be awarded to the lucky fans who have photographic evidence of this show. Send ’em in!
Ahh…makes me miss those days of one-upping each other with wild tales of what we thought Nick wouldn’t ever caught dead doing….
*If you thought Duranie points were actually worth anything…well….no. Yay!
