On this day in 2001, Duran Duran played at the House of Blues at Center Stage in Atlanta. This was one of the five shows that Duran Duran played there in a row. Once again, I can’t help but to say that this sounds like a fan’s dream. Who wouldn’t love to go see them five nights in a row without having to travel?!? Probably, the only thing that I would change is the venue. It isn’t that I don’t like the House of Blues. It is more about general admission (GA). I am definitely not a fan of that. I don’t like having to worry about when to line up, fighting for personal space once you are in the venue, not being able to leave to go to the bathroom without losing your spot, etc. While GA is not as bad as a festival show, it isn’t much better, in my world!
On a related note, I have been thinking a lot about Duran Duran concerts. I’m sure that it is a sign of me missing them a great deal as well as me needing a big distraction. Anyway, yesterday, I asked the question about when people first saw Duran Duran live. I will look at the answers I got and discuss those in a blog, at some point. Then, I will ask how old people were at their first show. Lastly, a couple of weeks ago, one of our favorite readers and guest bloggers mentioned how varied the set lists were during this 2001 Pop Trash tour. It made me wonder. Is he right? How many different songs were on those set lists? How many different songs have been on set lists for other tours? I will try to find that information as well. I suspect all of these future blogs will show a lot about Duran fans and about Duran shows. I look forward to them all.
