Well friends, Amanda is working hard to get her school year together, and so that means you get ME for another week of history!! These are just a few of the interesting DD historical factoids for this week over the course of their career!
- In 2018, Nick Rhodes scored the soundtrack to the movie, In2ruders. (August 30)
- Duran Duran played at the Home festival in Treviso, Italy in 2017 (August 31)
- Liberty peaked the UK charts at #8 in 1990 (September 1)
- Remember the reunion?? On September 2nd, we celebrate the anniversary of the day that “[Reach up for the] Sunrise” was put on the web in 2004. Wow…time flies!
- John Taylor released Meltdown on September 3, 1999. (Never heard of this? It’s a JT solo album!)
- Do you love the video for Pressure Off? They filmed it at Black Island studios in London this week in 2015. FIVE YEARS AGO already!! (September 4)
- *sigh* Just one year ago (2019 in case you’ve forgotten!) on September 5, Duran Duran played at Agua Caliente in Rancho Mirage, California. Remember live gigs?? *more sighing* Oh, to go back to the days when a virus didn’t stop the world cold…
That’s it for this week! -R
It’s funny you mention this: John Taylor released Meltdown on September 3, 1999. (Never heard of this? It’s a JT solo album!)
I just got a DVD of JT live from his Terroristen years and that song is part of his live 5 songs set !
