DDM also included a note from the road for this show:

Milaaannnooo!!!! The fashion capital of the world, so one of the band’s meccas of course! We are minutes, literally, from the show starting, so I just wanted to check in and say hello! 

Milano has been good so far, and the Idropark, while covered in mozzies, has been beautiful, hot and ready for the band. You should hear the crowd right now, the walk in music has not even started and you can hear them chanting and getting ready. Audiences in Italy are amazing, some of the most passionate you find! 

The VIPs were lovely tonight and I am looking forward to taking them back to say hello to the band after the show tonight. Things are good here, I will check in with you tomorrow from the BEACH in di Jesolo! 

buona sera

DuranDuranMusic.com also includes a note from the road:

What a lovely place Liverpool is! I have been to England a number of times, all over, but this is my first visit to Liverpool. Yesterday was a day off, the bulk of it spent in front of the computer, but in the early evening managed to get out for a little bit. Great place. 

The show is on as we speak, just found some moments here to check in and say hello. The show is really good, the crowd is quite into it and the band seems to be really into it as well! 

The VIP this evening was really fun! People from all over the UK and a few from Korea and Japan as well! Some of the girls from Korea won the meet and greet, and it which was really special for them. They had the most amazing collections of books, etc. they had created from the tour earlier this spring when we were there (Korea). 

Keep an eye out for some new pix tonight or tomorrow! See you in Nottingham.

There are a number of clips from the show on YouTube.  I’m including a little of the electro set with “Last Chance on the Stairway”.

Were any of you at this particular show?  How was it?

Notes from the Road (from duranduranmusic.com):

Hello from backstage at the KB Hallen. The band have just finished an AMAZING show here in Copenhagen. Other than it being a million degrees (maybe not a million, but it was certainly hot out there…) it was what a great show is all about. 

The crowd was wonderful and the band was LOVING it! This is such a cool town, so its not surprise that its people are too! Things are winding down now…load out is happening all around, the band is on the way to catch a late flight to London and the crew is gearing up for our 20 (yes that is 20, 2-0) hour drive to London. This week upcoming the crew and band will be in rehearsals in the UK rehearsing for the Mark Ronson show in a couple weeks. They are working hard to get ready for it. From calls between Mr. Ronson and the guys to reprogramming to rehearsing it will be quite the adventure. 

Then of course its off to the UK! 

So, it will be quiet for a few days while we are between gigs, but will be in touch after London. 

See ya

There are also a number of videos from the show on YouTube.  I decided it would be fun to include a clip of Tempted from that night:

Were any of you there?  If so, what was it like?

Today in Duran History – Maryland

On today’s date in 2008, Duran Duran played at the  Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland.  This was during the Red Carpet Massacre tour.

As an aside, I just express my joy for dd.com. I can say that there is rarely a single day that goes by that I don’t need to go to the website for something, whether it’s to check a date, look at the discography, read some news…or in this case, find a set list.  While they don’t have every single tidbit of information, they have a lot…and I know that Amanda and I are among their frequent visitors.

So…what did they play that night in Columbia, Maryland?  I’m so glad you asked!  Here’s the setlist, and you’ll note that this was during the time when they performed the beloved ElectroSet:  (copied from duranduran.com)
