Manila 1989 is an unofficial Duran Duran live album, recorded during The Big Live Thing Tour at the Araneta Coliseum in Manila, Philippines on 28 February 1989.

About the album[]

The album is a recording of Duran Duran's performance at the Araneta Coliseum, a 16,500 capacity venue located in the Cubao area of Quezon City. This was the second of two shows performed in Manila on the tour.

Duran Duran came out with all guns blazing, kicking off this sold out concert with the title track to the Big Thing album. Released four months earlier on 18 October, Big Thing was the first full Duran Duran album that Warren Cuccurullo was involved with.

"Hungry Like the Wolf" was followed by Duran Duran's nineteenth single "Do You Believe in Shame?", a song dedicated to three of the band's fallen friends: record producer Alex Sadkin, artist Andy Warhol, and Simon Le Bon's childhood friend David Miles.

During the evening there was a cover version of Arcadia's "Election Day", a single first played in Manila by WXB102 radio in 1985.

Duran Duran closed the show with their ultimately defining hit "Rio".
