Today in Duran History – Power Station Cincinnati

On this date in 1985, Power Station played at the Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.  This particular date was towards the end of the Power Station tour.  During this time, I would have loved to have been able to go to one of these Power Station shows.  Yet, now, as an adult, I wonder what this tour was really like.  Did the band have a smooth chemistry on stage?  Did it seem like they were all getting along and having fun?

If you were at one of these Power Station shows during the summer of 1985, do let me know what you observed!

  1. I was at this concert. Great night of music. But no Robert Palmer. If he had toured with TPS, it would have been amazing. OMD was the opening act and was also great. They played with lots of energy. 30 years ago, I was 16.

  2. I saw Power Station in 1985 in Worcester, MA. It was a fantastic show, but, I had seen Duran Duran the year before so I went in to the Power Station show with mixed emotions. I was still reeling over the band splitting apart but still excited to see John and Andy. I was also bummed that Robert Palmer decided not to tour with them but Michael Des Barre was a perfect replacement. I also really enjoyed OMD opening for them.
