Some days, there’s not much to say…this is one of those days. I’ve got an orientation to be at in under an hour, packing to do, and a house to clean. It’s a busy day.
On this date in 2016, Duran Duran played in San Antonio at the Tobin Center for Performing Arts. This date was included on the Paper Gods tour. Who was there?
My favorite thing about the Paper Gods tour had to be the confetti. I know that sounds like a corny thing to say, but it made the shows into parties, and who doesn’t want to party with Duran Duran??? To this day, when I think back on the tour, I think about the confetti cannons and how beautiful the venues would be as I’d take a second to peel my eyes away from the stage long enough to see the clouds of confetti billow in the sky and then gradually float down onto the crowd. I remember watching it all and thinking of the juxtaposition. Confetti calmly drifting down upon a frenzy of jumping, screaming bodies. What a scene, and I loved every minute.
On the other hand, not quite sure I miss being pelted by giant beach balls. There I’d be, watching Rio, trying to sing along, and if I wasn’t alert, a beach ball would come out of nowhere and bonk me on the head. That said, I did rather enjoy hitting the ball hard enough to send it back onstage…..
Such fun. Those memories will get me through my tenuous morning as we get back into the school spirit here. Have a lovely Thursday, everyone!
