Way back in the dark ages…we’re talking 1982 people…Duran Duran played at Shibuya Kokaido in Tokyo. I can honestly say that not only do I not remember this show (I definitely wasn’t there!), I really think that at that point in my life, my world began and ended at Sunflower Intermediate School in Glendora, California (a school that has since been closed). I was eleven years old, and while I know I could have picked Japan and even Tokyo out on a map, overall the world felt an awful lot bigger to me then than it does these days. I don’t know that I even dreamed about seeing the word beyond the US at that time. There are moments when it is hard to believe there was once a time when the internet didn’t exist and we were forced to rely on radio, TV & magazines for our Duran Duran news.
Dark ages indeed!!
