Allstate Astronaut: 18-03-2005 is an unofficial Duran Duran live album, recorded during The Astronaut Tour at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, IL, USA on 18 March 2005.

About the albumEdit

The album is a recording of Duran Duran's performance at the Allstate Arena, a 18,500 capacity venue located adjacent to O'Hare International Airport. This was the first of two shows performed in the state of Illinois on the tour.

The band line-up included Dominic Brown filling in for Andy Taylor, who had just travelled back to the UK to be with his aliling father. He died a few days later.

After taking the stage, Duran Duran came forward and stood in a row to receive the crowd’s adulation.

The band then took up their positions and opened the show with "(Reach Up for The) Sunrise", an upbeat, anthemic song. "Hungry Like the Wolf" followed, which had the crowd dancing.

A five-panel video backdrop flickered throughout the evening, displaying a mix of live stage footage and light show images. One exception was for "Careless Memories", which featured a anime-style cartoon.

"Nice" was the sixth and final track taken from the band's recently released Astronaut album, during the show.

Duran Duran closed out the show with an encore consisting of "Girls on Film" and "Rio".

Tickets for the event cost around $60.00.
