On today’s date in 2008, Duran Duran played at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland. This was during the Red Carpet Massacre tour.
As an aside, I just express my joy for dd.com. I can say that there is rarely a single day that goes by that I don’t need to go to the website for something, whether it’s to check a date, look at the discography, read some news…or in this case, find a set list. While they don’t have every single tidbit of information, they have a lot…and I know that Amanda and I are among their frequent visitors.
So…what did they play that night in Columbia, Maryland? I’m so glad you asked! Here’s the setlist, and you’ll note that this was during the time when they performed the beloved ElectroSet: (copied from duranduran.com)
