On this date in 1993, Duran Duran played at La Cigale in Paris, France. Whenever I read or see anything about the Wedding Album Tour, I immediately think about how I saw the band for the first time during this tour. This idea seems to fit with yesterday’s day in Duran history as Rhonda mentioned about how she wanted to be able to see a show in 1984. I certainly did, too. Well, I did after I found out about the tour! I wasn’t really a Duranie until after the Sing Blue Silver tour was over as I always put my Duranie anniversary as April 1984 when The Reflex hit it big. Anyway, I didn’t get to see Duran Duran live until 1993.
In 1993, I was graduating from high school and getting ready to attend college, out of state. Really, Duran Duran was the last thing on my mind. I never stopped loving them but I didn’t have many friends into them by this point and was busy living life. Thus, I didn’t even know that they were touring until my one friend who liked them told me about the show. When she suggested going (and can you believe that she had to suggest it?!?), I remember shrugging my shoulders and agreeing. I distinctly recall agreeing because the show wasn’t far away and that the tickets weren’t that much money. Now, I laugh at this since I have traveled far and gone out of my way to go see them many, many, many times in the last decade! Silly me!
What was your first show? How did you decide to go to that one?
