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?
