Today in Duran History – Cesme, Turkey 1993

On this date in 1993, Duran Duran played at the Cesme Amphitheatre in Izmir/Cesme, Turkey, as part of the 1993 Cesme Festival.  This was part of the No Ordinary Tour of 1993.  It is also a few days before Simon lost his voice on that tour, causing the band to cancel a number of dates.

The set list was as follows:

Planet Earth
Hungry Like the Wolf
A View to a Kill
Ordinary World
Come Undone
White Lines
The Chauffeur
Girls on Film
UMF
Notorious
The Reflex
Rio
Save a Prayer
Love Voodoo
Too Much Information
Wild Boys

What do you think of that setlist?  I would totally dig seeing/hearing UMF and Too Much Information live (again).  That said, I’m not sure about putting Ordinary World and Come Undone together.  If you attended this show, do you think it worked?

It appears that most of this show can be found on YouTube, interestingly enough.  I’m including Too Much Information.  Just to warn you, Simon is not wearing a shirt.
