1. (UK TV) SkyArts Duran Duran Songbook 01/28/09: This two part special from th UK was broadcasted in two parts. The show was an intimate live event, that showcased the band’s musical catalogue and included a rare live performance of “Late Bar”.
There were only 150 tickets available for the event. The tickets could not be bought, and were be only obtained by winning them through DuranDuranMusic.com.
As the performance was for TV there were strictly no cameras allowed and the audience were placed in front and back of Duran Duran on stage. This allowed the band to communicate with the audience on a personal level, with Roger Taylor turning this back on many occasions asking if everything is fine and if there were any wishes for songs to play. John Taylor also commented how intimate the show was.
Track listing of live performances for the entire Parts 1 and 2 are as follows:
Part 1: ”Planet Earth”, “Late Bar”, “The Chauffeur”, “Rio” and “Skin Trade”
Part 2: “A View To A Kill”, “Do You Believe In Shame?”, “Ordinary World”, “Sunrise”, ”The Valley”,
Total Running Time is 1 Hour 35 Minutes (ALL COMMERCIALS EDITED OUT)
Stéphane MOMI –
As usual, a great HD quality for this fabulous TV show. A real, intimate interview with the band along with some tracks rarely played tracks live. Nice to hear “Late Bar” and “Do You Believe In Shame ?” at this period in their careers with additional musicians in a great studio. Thanks to the staff at MVR for your great work.
