Duran Duran – Red Carpet Massacre Concert
Dec 12 2007

Erin, my husband, and I went to the Duran Duran concert at the Austin Music Hall last night.  It was fabulous!  They played just a few songs off of their new CD but spent most of the time on their classics like Rio, Save A Prayer, Girls on Film, Wild Boys (one of our son’s favorite songs), etc., etc.   They didn’t play Hungry Like the Wolf (which is our son’s other favorite DD song).

We didn’t have MTV growing up so I didn’t get to see their videos very often.   I’ve seen more of them now because Erin bought their video collection a while back.  I always thought it was cool that a few of Duran Duran’s videos were filmed in Sri Lanka, which is where I’m from.

Erin said one of his entire room wall’s was filled with Duran Duran posters back in the day.  He was a huge fan.  I think he said he even had some jacket that looked like the one Simon LeBon used to wear.  After seeing the videos again, I finally understood why Erin dances the way he does…which is almost exactly like Simon.  My sister had posters of them on her wall too.  I am embarrassed to admit now that I had a poster of Michael Jackson on my wall.  I know.  I know.  Don’t tell anyone.

Sara Bareillis was the opening act and she has a great voice!  The Austin Music Hall is still under construction and we were fortunate to get there early enough that parking was not a problem and since it’s first come first serve seating we got front row balcony seats!  The only drawback about being in the front row section of the balcony was that we were not supposed to stand.  There were a few times we just had to stand and clap because Duran Duran entered the stage or began playing one of their songs and the security guys didn’t seem to mind.  Overall I don’t think they were worried about this crowd because my guess is that over 90% of the people there were over the age of 25…maybe even 30.  And of course us old folks don’t get too rowdy!

There were several nearby bars so we had easy access to reasonably priced mixed drinks.  Plus the bathrooms didn’t get too crowded which is a bonus.  We got stuck in the parking trying to get out so we got home a bit later than we thought, and fortunately our babysitter for the night didn’t have any curfew restrictions so she didn’t turn into a pumpkin after 11:00 p.m. :-)

    I can’t believe you were there – we were too! There were 7 of us, and we were pretty mad that they didn’t play ‘hungry like a wolf’. We felt robbed! Oh well – the pre-concert dinner at Uchi’s made up for it :)

    Hey Eric – cool that you were there too! Our pre-concert dinner was spaghetti with shrimp at home with the kids. :-)

    I’m so jealous!!! I always loved Duran Duran, and I had every album and read everything about them that I could get my hands on. I even had an imported picture-disc single of Hungry Like the Wolf!

    I never did get to go to a concert….

    Hi Carole – Sounds like you need to find a way to make one of their current concerts during this tour. :-) we had a great time! Erin recorded a few versus of some of the songs on his phone. If I can figure out how to upload it (assuming it sounds good), I’ll try to do that.

    Concert was really cool. I had been to one in the very early 90s and that one was amazing as well. Great stage presence and ability to get the audience excited. Aruni is right that I was a big fan in my teens…had all sorts of rare import LPs and singles that I would get from Japan and Europe, etc. etc.
