Chile 1993 is an unofficial Duran Duran live album, recorded during An Acoustic Evening Tour at the Velodromo in Santiago de Chile, Chile on 9 May 1993.

About the album[]

The album is a recording of Duran Duran's performance at the Velodromo, a 47,000 capacity outdoor venue located in the eastern sector of Santiago de Chile. This was Duran Duran's first ever show performed in the South American country of Chile.

After Chilean rock band Valija Diplomática opened the show, Duran Duran appeared on stage. Whilst the band got ready on this cold evening with their equipment, Simon Le Bon who was dressed in gloves and a coat, spoke to the crowd in Spanish.

As stage lights illuminated Fergus Gerrand on drums, Warren Cuccurullo burst into the opening chords of the first song "Planet Earth", played on an acoustic guitar. Le Bon now minus his coat and gloves was soon singing the opening lyrics to their debut single.

The next song, "Hungry Like the Wolf" was greeted with screams from the crowd when Le Bon began their 80s hit with "In touch with the ground".

Two songs from the recently released Duran Duran album followed, including the Ivor Novello Award winning "Ordinary World".

The album recording was taken from a Chilean radio special celebrating Duran Duran's first show in Chile, which is also available as a video bootleg version.

Near the end of the evening, Duran Duran performed an acoustic cover version of Iggy Pop's "Success", before closing the show with "The Wild Boys" and "Rio".
