About the album[edit | edit source]
The album is a recording of Duran Duran's performance at the Lyceum Theatre, a 2,000-seat West End theatre located in the City of Westminster, London. This was a one-night sold-out performance at a venue Duran Duran last played almost 27 years earlier on 4 January 1981.
The concert was staged as part of a series of events around the world to promote the release of the band's new Red Carpet Massacre album. Many celebrities attended the event including models Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, the designers Philip Treacy and Julien Macdonald, Formula One motor racing personnel Flavio Briatore and Bernie Ecclestone, and Live Aid founder Bob Geldof.
Dressed in black suit jackets and jeans Duran Duran opened the show with songs from the Red Carpet Massacre album. John Taylor announced "Like all good punk songs, this is dedicated to the dream of transcendence".
After an interval, the band returned in satin jackets for an electro set that was a homage to Kraftwerk. Standing in a line behind keyboards on stands, the four original member of Duran Duran covered the German band's song "Showroom Dummies". More electro versions followed including a performance of The Normal’s synth "Warm Leatherette". The set finishes with "Skin Trade" and the curtain drops.
The final part of the show is a full-on hits encore that begins with "Rio".
