Duran Duran Deliver the Hits During Memorable Show in Port Chester, New York

Duran Duran took the stage to thunderous applause Sunday night (Aug. 2) for the second show of a sold-out two-night stint at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York.

And the band delivered right from the start.

Kicking off the night with the 1-2-3 punch of “Wild Boys,” “A View to a Kill” and “The Reflex,” Duran Duran assured the fans they were in for a memorable show. When singer Simon Le Bon first took the stage, he stood still for a moment and stoically looked out at the adoring crowd, while bassist John Taylor came out bouncing around with the energy of a young rocker playing his very first gig.

Duran Duran have been around since 1978 and a good deal of fans in attendance probably have kids who are the same age as they were when they first started listening to the band, but the vibe of the show was very current and very now. The group doesn’t come off as a nostalgia act, as their hits and their sound are timeless, easily fitting into today’s electro-rock scene, as many new acts owe a debt to Duran Duran.

With the band set to release its 14th album, Paper Gods, in September, Duran Duran performed the new song “Pressure Off,” which sounded right at home sandwiched in between hits like “Notorious” and “Planet Earth.” Toward the end of the set, the crowd roared for “Hungry Like the Wolf,” and cheered enthusiastically for the encore consisting of the band’s notable cover of the hip-hop classic “White Lines” and their own mega-hit “Rio.”

Duran Duran’s promotion for Paper Gods has only just begun. Check out all of their upcoming tour dates here, and pre-order the album here. See our exclusive gallery of photos from Duran Duran’s show in Port Chester above.
