On today’s date in 1990, Serious peaked at number 48 on the charts in the UK.
I don’t care what Nick Rhodes says, Serious is yet another example of an underrated Duran Duran song. I still love that opening groove. In fact, we’re gonna watch the video right now and celebrate right along with the Gum Chewing Controller. (You’re welcome, Nicholas. Anytime!!)
On today’s date in 1990, the single “Serious” was released in the UK.
Also on today’s date, but in 2005, Duran Duran played in Las Vegas at the Grand Slam for the Children charity event (Andre Agassi) at the MGM Garden Arena. A crowd of Duranies descended upon Vegas for a couple of nights to see the band play four songs (yes, four…but we loved every damn one of them!), have fun together, and if you were with me at Club Tabu until the wee hours, you may have even Reached Up For the Sunrise!
Seems to me it’s about time for some shows….and not just some private gigs or shows that are so ridiculously priced only the select few can attend….but that’s just me. Onward and upward!
