Seen the band seven times after this weekend. Never seen any of their side projects and solo gigs. The Minneapolis show on Friday is definitely my favorite now since I was front row center stage in a small venue! Never seen a show that close with such an established band (and a favorite one of mine) in my life.
I met Simon after the Chicago show in 2006, during which he signed my Astronaut cover. I also met the entire band in 2007 during an RCM listening party in New York City. All took pictures with me and were more than accommodating to the fans.

4 shows for me, iceland 05, glasgow 05, odense denmark 08 and KB hall denmark 08. met the band 2, in glagsow and KB Hall. short but nice meets. got the talk the most with Simon in KB Hall. there is a ongoing story with me and the bank because of a icelandic band that did a cover CD with Duran song back in 05 when they came here. I´ve given them all a copy of the CD and that has led to talks, longer that the usal M&G chatts. I am fling to england for 2 shows in june and hope that my lick with meeting up with them keeps going.
find MoR Duran on Spotify, best Duran covers ever.
I've been to 13 shows. My favorite was Cleveland 2003, during their small venue reunion tour. It was the first time I saw the original 4 lineup and it just blew me away. Loved seeing them in the smaller setting too. I really wanted to go to Chicago on Saturday, but couldn't swing it. I hope they come back through and hit Ohio.

After tomorrow's show it will be 19 times.
My favorite was the Webster Hall in August 2003. The sound guys totally sucked but the dance floor was literally bouncing up and down when they opened with Friend's of Mine. I lost my hearing for a good two minutes or so when they closed with Rio. I couldn't hear anything cause the the sax was so f'ing loud! People were jumping all over the place and it was complete silence. I went deaf.
Thankfully I regained my hearing once the lights came on and the place cleared out.
First concert ever was Power Station...... then saw them in 2008 with the RCM tour and this past Sat. at HOB Chicago in which I got to meet all of them! Still floating on cloud 9!!! Picture turned out AWESOME!!!! Signed, One Happy Duranie!!!!
I see a spot for ME on the couch right between Si and JT
