On today’s date in 2008, Duran Duran played at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. This show was part of the Red Carpet Massacre Tour. Were you there? If so, how was it?
While I’m sure many of you are aware that the Red Carpet Massacre era was not the favorite Duran era for the authors of this blog, there were a couple of really that I really liked about this tour. The first one was something Rhonda and I talked about just this past week. I loved their clothing for this tour. I loved the Jackson Pollack aspect of the paint splashes across the black or white clothes combined with block lettering of song titles or whatnot. I always paid attention to who was wearing what words and wondered why they chose those words on that given night. Yeah, yeah, I think too much. I enjoy that sort of thing, though! The other thing I really loved was the Electro Set as I have talked about here before. I did find this clip of Last Chance on the Stairway from this particular show, which I thought was cool.
