On stage

Innsendt av:

At what time will you app. enter the stage tonight?
my butler is currently drawing me a bath, the manicurist is stuck in traffic, and the astrologer is working out the charts, so if all goes well we should be ready sometime around 930 pm. look forward to seeing you all then. be sure to wear your sunday best.

i am afraid the time has come to say good bye till next time. thank you all for participating in this norwegian experiment. i have had as many laughs as edvard munch before he got the brushes out. bye!

NICKs Shoes

Innsendt av:

How many do you own.
And you favorite pair.
1962 pairs, which is of course an estimate. but hand made purple snake skin with a cuban heel are enough to make prince blush.

Dandy and Nick

Innsendt av:

Will you continue the cooperation with the Dandy Warhols?

Welcome to the Monkey House was excellent. The early Duran Duran is in my ears truly present in that album.
they did become the durandy warhols for a while and we had a interesting time recording the album. think the new one is due soon, back to rock!

Setlist and changes?

Innsendt av:

Hi,

Sad to say that I am in Vietnam while you play my hometown.
Seen you 3times this year already, so that sort of makes up!

One thing I wonder though is why you changed your set-list from Hammersmith in January
to the Astronaut tour opening? Hammersmith was the best show I attended since The Forum in 2003, and
the setlist was amazing!
We who follows you around have lived with Sunrise opening for some years now...hehe.
What was wrong with Finest Hour opening in january??

Is there any chance of "post-notorious" songs on the setlist in the future, or is the Warren era
a closed chapter??

Brg

klaus@duranduran.no

would love to visit you and your family in vietnam... we like to change the set list because we all have attention deficit disorder and find it extremely difficult to concentrate on the same thing for too long. finest hour had its finest hour in january.

Remember me?

Innsendt av:

Hello, my name is Sofie.
I was at your concert in London in 1984 and it was fab. I ran up the stage and kissed on of you on the mouth. I don´t remember who, beacuse I was so frickin drunk! Remember?
yes, of course. you were wearing a tartan skirt with a purple blouse. it was not tucked in at the front. and your eye make-up was slightly smudged under your right eye. you actually kissed one of our roadies who unforunately lost both of his front teeth during his days as a tree surgeon.

Innsendt av:

It was impossible to get tickets to your consert in Oslo. When are you coming back on a bigger stadium so we all can enjoy your music?
Best Regards
Rio
had we known how keen you all were in this part of the world, we would of course have accomodated each and every one of you with home visits, and an offer of a larger venue with an insurance policy. as Arnie would say, we will be back

Skin Trade

Innsendt av:

Hello Rhodes and Taylor!

Nice to have you back! We love Yourè music!! :-)

Your setlist is fantastic - You must be very proud!! But why isn`t "Skin Trade" here? "Skin Trade", "What happens tomorrow" and "Someone else not me" are the best songs You have made!!

Thanx a lot!!

Christian & Jens
well evidently we can only please 33.33 % of the people 100% of the time because what happens tomorrow is in the set, but your other two choices are currently on vacation, but could return at any moment

Innsendt av:

Simon, what's your favorite studio microphone and preamp/compressor?

Do you still use big fancy studios or do you record songs at home on DAWs?
