Question of the Week: Song That Represents the Pop Trash Tour Part 2

Last week, the question of the week focused on the song that best represents the Pop Trash Tour just like we had done previously with the Astronaut, Red Carpet Massacre, All You Need Is Now and Paper Gods Tour. Again, like questions before, I promised that we would narrow the choices and give people a second chance to vote, especially if they want to rethink their answer from last week. Interestingly enough, the song that had the most votes last time was Fragment. Something about that seems…questionble. After all, Fragment is an instrumental that lasts about a minute. Is that really the song that best represents that era of Duran Duran? Really?

Anyway, we ask the same question now. I included any song that had at least one vote last week. Now is your time to relook at the list, think about that time in Duran Duran history and pick the song that bests represents or showcases that era.

Question of the Week: Song that Represents the Pop Trash Tour

Anyone feel like doing a survey? I know you do, especially if it is about Duran Duran. This week we are moving on to the next tour, the Pop Trash Tour. The basic idea here is that we are asking people to pick out the song that represents each of Duran Duran tours. So far we have picked out songs for the Paper Gods Tour, the All You Need Is Now Tour, the Red Carpet Massacre Tour and finally the Astronaut Tour. Here are the songs so far:

  • Pressure Off (Paper Gods)
  • All You Need Is Now (All You Need Is Now)
  • Nite Runner (Red Carpet Massacre)
  • Sunrise (Astronaut)

The tour before the Astronaut Tour was the Pop Trash Tour. In order to do this poll, I looked at the song that Duran Duran played during the year 2000 as the band played the most number of shows for that tour during that year. As always, they played quite a few different songs over the course of the year. You may find it difficult to pick just one to represent the entire tour. Therefore, look at this week as your chance to narrow the choices. Then, next week we can pick just one. On that note, happy voting!

Today in Duran History – Nashville 2000

On this date in 2000, Duran Duran played at the AmSouth Amphitheater in Antioch, Tennessee, located just outside of Nashville.  This show was part of the Pop Trash Tour.  This is a tour I have to confess to missing.  I was in graduate school, at the time, and didn’t have time or money for anything else extra.  This meant that any and every time I heard or saw something about Duran, I put it out of my mind quickly, knowing that if I didn’t, I would be sucked in!

I did look for a setlist for this show but was unable to find one.  Anyone out there have it?

For people who did attend this tour, what was it like?  How did it compare to other Duran tours?
