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

Once upon a time, there were two Duran Duran fans. One named Amanda, the other named Rhonda. Over many vodka tonics, they would laugh about the idea of one day writing a book about their fan experiences. While that manuscript is still being composed...Rhonda thought they should write a blog. (What was she THINKING?!) Lo and behold: The Daily Duranie was born.

  1. 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 !
