Just wondering whether Duran Duran will be playing much of their LOVED older music please??!! Hope so. Some friends saw them recently and were disappointed as they only played 2 of there older songs 🙁

Hi Julie,

I haven’t seen them on this tour – to be fair, I haven’t seen them since the first reunion tour back in 2003! – but I would guess it should be a mix of old favourites and new songs from the newer albums since they reunited. When you say “older” how far back do you mean? If you’re expecting mostly songs from the first three albums (debut, Rio, S&TRT), yes, you might be disappointed.

Here is a link to the set list for the DC show this past Sunday, it’s a pretty good mix of new and old:

I hope this is helpful.
