My first Duran Duran concert


My boyfriend suprised me with tickets to the Duran Duran concert at the PNC Center during the summer of 2000. He didn't call me for like 3 weeks before this and I was afraid that he was thinking of breaking up with me and I wouldn't get to go. Luckily this didn't happen, although I was still mad at him for not even calling I don't even remember why he hadn't done so. I was just glad that I'd be getting to see DD for the first time although I was a little disappointed that John Taylor was no longer in the group, or even Roger. Didn't care about no Andy though - that sounds mean. I don't remember much about this event. I was a bit ashamed that I sung a little during Rio and swayed to the music. I should've looked at the screen and used the binoculars more. There were some rude people next to us who got up 4 or 5 times for more beer. Mike met a girl that he knew there and I was a little jealous that she had a seat close to the stage.

I saw DD in concert around the same time, maybe a year or two after you did. I thought they sounded great, but as they were the last act on a lot of the younger crowd left because they didn't know who they were. They put a great show and dedicated the song Ordinary World to the late Robert Palmer.

I do remember enjoying myself even though my fav JT wasn't with them. I wish that I had written down the set list though. I can't remember if they did one of my favs New Moon on Monday. It's a shame about the young crowds lack of appreciation for some good music. How nice of them to dedicate that song to Robert Palmer. I like some of his music too.
