Today in Duran History – Boston 1988

On this date in 1988, Duran Duran played at the Citi Club in Boston. This show was the second to last show in the Nine City Caravan Club Tour.  Were there any lucky Duranies in attendance that night?

I have to say that I wouldn’t really mind if Duran decided to play smaller clubs during the next tour…as long as I can also have assigned seating!

Today in Duran History – Dallas 1988

On this date in 1988, Duran Duran played at the Arcadia Theater in Dallas, Texas.  This was part of the Nine City Caravan Club Tour.  Did anyone attend this show?

The setlist was as follows:

God (London)
Big Thing
I Don’t Want Your Love
Do You Believe in Shame?
All She Wants Is
Planet Earth
Winter Marches On
Palomino
Girls on Film
Notorious
Is There Something I Should Know?
The Wild Boys
Drug
Save a Prayer
The Reflex
Rio

On a different note, on this date in 2006, we saw Duran play at the Sears Center in Chicago.  It was on this date that we welcomed Dom Brown into the band.  We knew that the band would survive the loss of Andy Taylor then and so would we.

Today in Duran History – San Francisco 1988

On this date in 1988, Duran Duran played at the Filmore in San Francisco, California.  This show was one of the ten shows in the Nine City Caravan Club Tour.  This brief tour of the U.S. and Canada happened before the band started on their lengthy Big Thing World Tour.  It was in support of the Big Thing album.

I managed to find the setlist for this show, which was:

God (London)
Big Thing
I Don’t Want Your Love
Hungry Like the Wolf
Do You Believe in Shame?
Skin Trade
All She Wants Is
Planet Earth
Winter Marches On
Palomino
Girls on Film
Notorious
Is There Something I Should Know?
Wild Boys
Drug
Save a Prayer
The Reflex
Rio

Was anyone there?  How was the show?
