Today in Duran History – Montreux Pop Festival

On this date in 1985, Duran Duran played at the Montreux Pop Festival in  Switzerland.  This festival was part of a larger jazz festival, which is probably the best known festival in Switzerland and a big one for all of Europe.

I found a performance of them doing Wild Boys, which you can see here:

I have to wonder how things were for this performance since we now know that life in Duran Duran wasn’t all that happy for them at that time.  What do you think of their performance?  Do you see any unhappiness?  Any tension?

  1. Roger looks like he’d rather not be there.There were a number of 8.5x11mag sots from this performance being published in our favorite mags

  2. The performance was days before Live Aid, so the attitude on the stage looks like being the same as of the July more famous one.
    And it still hurts to me to see the guys like that.
