Live In San Jose is an unofficial Duran Duran live album, recorded during The Ultra Chrome, Latex and Steel Tour at the Event Center Arena, San Jose State University in San Jose, CA, USA on 5 December 1997.

About the album[]

The album is an incomplete recording of Duran Duran's performance at the Event Center Arena, a 5,000 capacity venue located on the main campus of San José State University at 290 South 7th Street. This was the first of four shows performed in the state of California on the tour.

The tour was only staged in North America, consisting of 21 dates and included two shows in Canada. The band line-up featured drummer Steve Alexander, who had previously toured with Duran Duran on The Radio Station Festival Tour in 1995.

After Miami based American rock band Al's Not Well warmed up the crowd, Duran Duran launched the show with their US no.1 single "A View to a Kill".

"Out of My Mind" from The Saint was next, but after 25 seconds Simon Le Bon stopped the song because there was no light on stage. After aborting the track, Le Bon then had several angry words with the lighting crew. The song was then re-started.

During the show there was a somber moment when Le Bon informed the audience that Warren Cuccurullo's father had just passed away. This announcement is missing from the album, as are several songs.

Near the end of the evening, "Girls on Film" featured drummer Steve Alexander giving the song a radical new twist with a mix of "The Model" by Kraftwerk.

Tickets for the event cost around $25.00.
