Duran Duran one of the biggest new/wave synpop that came out of the 80s & 90s. Simon Le Bon was in top form. They started the show with Paper Gods which had the fans screaming.  The synthesizer and pop vocals were very reminiscent of the 80s. Duran Duran played hits Rio, The Reflex, Save a Prayer & Hungry Like the Wolf. Duran Duran played a eighteen song setlist. It was great watching Simon Le Bon perform a cover song by Grandmaster Flash & Mel of White Lines (Don’t Don’t Do It). Duran Duran were enjoyable and very entertaining. The fans were left wanting more of their favorite British Band Duran Duran.
