The Week in DD History: March 28 to April 3

In my opinion, March has felt like four months long, at the very least. In other words, it has been the world’s longest month so I’m pretty happy to get to the end of it. Maybe, it is because this week is my spring break, which I’m super happy about. Of course, I fear that the next couple of months will be even slower. So, my plan is to appreciate this week, including the Duran Duran events that happened over the years during this time.

March 28:

  • Duran Duran played at House of Blues in Anaheim in 2001.
  • Four years later, in 2005, Duran Duran played at Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Columbus, Ohio.
