The Week in DD History: January 3 – January 9

We are finally in 2021. Words cannot convey how thrilled everyone I know is to see 2020 go. Now that we are in 2021, we can feel good about celebrating Duran Duran history. While I suspect that January is a pretty quiet on Duran front, will that be the case? Let’s take a look.

January 3:

  • Duran Duran appeared on the TV show, Las Vegas, in 2005. I remember watching it and wondering if I should be excited or horrified by the appearance as Andy was not there but had Dom wearing a wig to replace him. So bad.

January 4:

  • Duran Duran played at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit in 1994.
  • On this date in 2001, Duran Duran played at the Level in Miami, FL. It seems to me that Miami would be a better choice for location in January but what do I know!

January 5:

  • Neurotic Outsider played at the Nile Theater in Phoenix, Arizona, in 1996.

January 6:

  • Nick Rhodes and Simon LeBon appeared on the Wogan Show on BBC TV in the UK in 1986.
  • In 1994, Duran Duran played at Hartford Civic Center.

January 7:

  • The single, All She Wants Is, peaked at number 9 in the UK in 1989.
  • In 2001, the song, Last Day on Earth, was released as a single in Japan only.

January 8:

  • Duran Duran played at the Hollywood Rock Festival in Rio in 1988.
  • C’est Tout Est Noir by Koishii and Hush that featured John Taylor was released in 2013. (Personally, I love it.)

January 9:

  • Duran Duran filmed the video for New Moon on Monday in France in 1984.
  • Ordinary World, the single, peaked at number 3 in the US in 1993.

So far, January is starting pretty quiet as far as Duran happenings but some of those events are still pretty cool. Which event is your favorite?
