Duran Duran - Unplugged is an unofficial Duran Duran live album, recorded at Sony Music Studios in New York City, NY, USA on 17 November 1993.

About the albumEdit

The album is an incomplete recording of Duran Duran's performance at Sony Music Studios, a former music recording and mastering facility in New York City, located at 460 West 54th Street.

Created by MTV, Unplugged is a TV series showcasing musical artists usually playing acoustic instruments.

Duran Duran began their 60-minute show with "Hungry Like the Wolf", featuring Simon Le Bon singing several lines of an introduction with new lyrics.

The band then followed with "Ordinary World", a new song from The Wedding Album which Le Bon introduced by saying "This means a lot to us, about the place we inhabit, our world, the ordinary world."

Performed with a string section, the show also featured acoustic versions of Duran Duran's debut single "Planet Earth" and several more songs from The Wedding Album released earlier that year.

The bootleg is not a full recording, missing the songs "Skin Trade", "Notorious" and "The Chauffeur".

Bonus tracks:

Track 9, "Notorious", is from the live worldwide broadcast of Duran Duran's midnight performance at Tower Records in Hollywood, CA, USA on 15 May 1993. The show was beamed simultaneously to fans in London, Sydney and Tokyo and shown at those cities' Hard Rock Cafes.

"Notorious" is an acoustic version which received official releases as B-sides on various "Too Much Information" CD singles and on the promo-only No Ordinary EP cassette. The track is also available on the World Broadcast album.

Tracks 10, 11 and 12 were recorded during An Acoustic Evening With Duran Duran Tour in Argentina on 30 April 1993.
