Nelson was a member of Images in Vogue, a band that was also a support act for Duran Duran, later in 1984. Their connection with Duran Duran went back a few years before the 1984 tour. Duran Duran performed in Vancouver at the Commodore Ballroom on The Rio Tour on 21 July 1982. Nelson had recently left his band “e” and was performing as a solo artist. The manager of “e”, Gerry Barad, also worked for Perryscope, the promoters of the Duran Duran show. He got Nelson the opening slot. Images in Vogue members Gary Smith did lights and Joe Vizvary did sound for Nelson. All three got to meet Duran Duran, as well as their crew, and struck up a relationship.
Nelson is currently working with Joe Vizvary of Images in Vogue on new original material as The Glen & Joe show.
