Long Island 1989 is an unofficial Duran Duran live album, recorded during The Big Live Thing Tour at the Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale in Long Island, NY, USA on 18 January 1989.

About the album[]

The album is an incomplete recording of Duran Duran's performance at the Nassau Coliseum, a 16,250 capacity venue located at 1255 Hempstead Turnpike. This was the first of two shows performed in the state of New York on the tour.

The opening act, The Pursuit of Happiness, gave the audience a glimpse of some of their unrestrained power pop tracks including "Love Junk" and "I'm an Adult Now".

Duran Duran first brought their live show to the Nassau Coliseum on 3 April 1984. The band now composed of Simon Le Bon, John Taylor and Nick Rhodes, launched this show with the title track to their latest release Big Thing.

The second song, "I Don't Want Your Love" was another new song from Big Thing, an album which is more guitar-driven than previous releases.

Other new songs such as "Do You Believe in Shame?" were nearly well received by the audience as "Girls on Film" and other band hits from the early 1980s.

During the evening there was a strong performance of "Winter Marches On", with the irony that it began to snow when fans made their way home after the concert.

Tickets for the event cost around $20.00.
