On this date in 1987, Simon Le Bon was interviewed on CFNY 102.1 in Toronto. This interview took place a couple of days before Duran Duran played in that city as support for David Bowie’s Glass Spider Tour. Did anyone see a show from that tour? I would be interested to see how both Duran was received by serious Bowie fans and vice versa. I saw David Bowie when he toured with Nine Inch Nails in the mid-1990s. I was shocked and appalled that the audience stood and were into Nine Inch Nails but sat or left during Bowie! I wonder if other people noticed something similar with Duran Duran during this 1987 tour.
Of course, when I think of promotion from this era, I think of Three to Get Ready. Part One is below and shows the band communicating with the media!
