To kick off their headlining set, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame group quickly dispatched several of their biggest hits, including “Hungry Like the Wolf,” “Notorious,” and “A View to a Kill.” In a career-spanning sequence befitting the ethos behind their 2021 LP, FUTURE PAST, the band reached as far back as their 1981 debut single “Planet Earth,” while touching on key eras with tracks like 1984’s “The Reflex,” 1993’s “Ordinary World,” and their latest LP’s “ANNIVERSARY.”
The night also included the first live rendition of the FUTURE PAST duet “GIVE IT ALL UP” with Tove Lo, who performed with the band and separately earlier in the day. Following 1981’s “Girls on Film” as the main set’s closer, the band returned with a double Rio encore of “Save a Prayer” and the iconic title track. Watch fan-captured footage from their set below.
Duran Duran will continue their North American trek through September with support from Grace Jones, Nile Rodgers & Chic, and Bastille on select dates. Check for tickets and deals to all of their upcoming dates here.
