The Week in DD History: September 13-19, 2020

I’m finally getting around to doing the time capsule for a week! I feel even more excited about it due to one very special event that happened during the week of September 13-20!

  • On September 13th in 2010, Rhonda wrote the very first post on this website and the Daily Duranie was born!
  • All You Need Is Now was released on vinyl in the UK and the US on September 13, 2011. How many of you own this album on vinyl?
  • CBS Sunday Morning featured Duran Duran on September 13, 2015. If you have not seen it, I would try to find it. Good stuff!
  • The MTV Video Music Awards that aired on September 14, 1984, included presenters, Simon Le Bon and Nick Rhodes.
  • John Taylor was a guest on the show, Politically Incorrect, on September 14, 1999. I would love to see John on shows like this now!
  • Duran Duran performed “Pressure Off” on the Tonight Show on the 15th of September in 2015.
  • The single, Electric Barbarella, was released on September 16, 1997.
  • On September 17, 2015, Duran Duran played at the iHeart Music Festival in Las Vegas.
  • Arcadia’s Election Day began filming on September 17, 1985. I only have two words for this video: Arcadia Simon. Enough said.
  • Duran Duran began the video for Serious on September 18, 1990. A personal favorite!
  • On September 19, 2003, Duran Duran played at the Santa Barbara Bowl in Santa Barbara, California. Anyone attend that show?
  • John Taylor had a book talk and signing in Manchester, England, for his autobiography, In the Pleasure Groove, on the 19th of September in 2012.

Lots of good Duran history this week!

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.
