King Duranie

I became interested in Duran Duran in about 1982 and have followed them ever since. I love the catchy songs, exotic videos and the band members themselves. I’ve always found Duran Duran have been able to keep up and still put out great music. Their concerts are always fun

2 Nights at the Wynn in Vegas

In a sensational showcase of modern musical mastery, Duran Duran took center stage at the Wynn theater in Las Vegas, May 3 and 4, 2024, for two exhilarating nights. Far from a mere trip down memory lane, the iconic band proved their timeless appeal and unmatched talent, captivating audiences with their unmistakable sound and electrifying presence. From their classic hits to their latest tracks, Duran Duran’s performance was a testament to their status as true musical legends.

When at the Wynn…

Nestled in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, the Bellagio stands as a true icon of luxury and sophistication. With its stunning Italian-inspired architecture, the Bellagio is a sight to behold, both inside and out. Home to the famous Fountains of Bellagio, which dance to music and lights in a mesmerizing display, the hotel is a must-see destination for visitors from around the world. Inside, guests are greeted by a world of elegance, with opulent décor, luxurious accommodations, and an array of dining, shopping, and entertainment options. The Bellagio is not just a hotel; it’s a destination in itself, offering a glimpse into the glamorous world of Las Vegas.

The Wynn Theater inside the Bellagio stands as a shimmering gem on the Las Vegas Strip, a venue that exudes elegance and sophistication. With its plush seating, state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems, and impeccable acoustics, it offers a truly immersive and unforgettable experience for concert-goers. The theater’s intimate setting creates a sense of closeness between the audience and the performers, making every show feel personal and exclusive.

Dreams Do Come True

For a devoted Duranie, seeing Duran Duran at the Wynn is a dream come true. The intimate setting of the Wynn theater allows fans to get up close and personal with their favorite band in a way that larger venues simply can’t match. It’s a chance to experience the band’s incredible musicianship and electrifying stage presence in a more personal and immersive way. Plus, the Wynn’s reputation for luxury and elegance adds an extra layer of excitement to the experience, making it a truly unforgettable event for any Duran Duran fan.

Much to the fans delight, classics like “The Chauffeur” and “Friends of Mine” were met with thunderous applause, showcasing the band’s timeless appeal and their ability to captivate audiences with their signature sound. Plus, cover of Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer” added a fun and playful twist to the setlist.

Simon’s Shenanigans

Frontman Simon Le Bon was nothing short of spectacular, showcasing his unparalleled talent and infectious energy. Known for his charismatic stage presence, Le Bon was in rare form, delighting fans with his playful antics and quirky sense of humor. From silly dance moves to playful banter with the audience, Le Bon kept the crowd entertained from start to finish. He even teased Roger, claiming that his hotel room was TOO BIG, requiring Roger to walk too far just to get to the light switch. But it wasn’t just his stage presence that wowed the audience; Le Bon’s vocals were as strong and powerful as ever, delivering flawless performances of Duran Duran’s classic hits and newer tracks alike. It was a performance that reminded everyone why Simon Le Bon is considered one of the greatest frontmen in rock history.

New Moon On Monday!

Duranies reached a fever pitch when the band surprised fans with a rare performance of “New Moon on Monday,” a song seldom heard live. As the opening chords filled the air, fans erupted into cheers, knowing they were witnessing a truly special moment. The band delivered a flawless rendition of the track, showcasing their musical prowess and timeless appeal. For many in the audience, it was a dream come true to hear this iconic song performed live, making the night all the more unforgettable. The band has explained that the song’s intricate production, including its layered synths and intricate vocal harmonies, makes it challenging to reproduce faithfully in a live setting. Despite these challenges, when Duran Duran does decide to include “New Moon on Monday” in their setlist, it becomes a rare and cherished moment for fans, adding a special touch to their live performances.

The Band Was FIRE

Le Bon’s vocals were as powerful and emotive as ever, soaring effortlessly through the band’s catalog of hits but let’s not forget about the rest of the band. They were equally impressive, with Nick Rhodes’s synths adding a layer of lushness to the sound, John Taylor’s bass providing a solid foundation, and Roger Taylor’s drums driving the rhythm forward with precision. Dom’s guitar work was nothing short of mesmerizing, adding rich textures and dynamic solos that brought new life to the band’s classic songs. His skill and versatility were on full display, seamlessly blending with the band’s sound and adding a modern edge to their iconic sound. Anna Ross’s backing vocals were equally impressive, adding depth and warmth to the band’s harmonies. Her voice complemented Simon Le Bon’s perfectly, creating a rich tapestry of sound that filled the theater and captivated the audience.

Together, they created a sound that was both nostalgic and fresh, reminding everyone in the audience why Duran Duran is one of the greatest bands of all time.

The Dancing Cowboy of Night 2

The audience was lively and engaged throughout the night, none more so than a man dressed in a cowboy hat and pink sequined robe. He danced with wild abandon, moving through the aisles and connecting with fans, embodying the spirit of the evening and adding to the overall energy of the performance. His infectious enthusiasm was a testament to the power of music to bring people together and create unforgettable moments.
