Mexico 1993 is an unofficial Duran Duran live album, recorded during The Dilate Your Mind Tour at the Sports Palace in Mexico City, Mexico on 6 July 1993.

About the album[]

The album is an incomplete recording of Duran Duran's performance at the Sports Palace, a 26,000 capacity venue also known as the Palacio de los Deportes. This was the first of five shows performed in Mexico on the tour.

The crowd erupted when Duran Duran burst onto the stage for their first ever show in Mexico. Through clouds of manufactured smoke, the band kicked off with their debut single "Planet Earth". Two more songs from the 80s followed, including a slow version of "Hungry Like the Wolf".

For nearly two hours Duran Duran played a rousing show that featured a selection of their biggest hits, album favorites and songs from their latest release, Duran Duran.

During the evening, there was a performance of Melle Mel's co-written "White Lines", a song Duran Duran would later record for their 1995 album Thank You.

"UMF" was played with a visual scenario on stage, with nurses delivering Le Bon on a hospital bed and Lamya stirred up some chemical bottles behind him.

The next song "Notorious" saw Le Bon encourage the Mexican audience to sing the "No-No-Notorious", whilst John Taylor played the bass line.

Duran Duran closed the show with "The Wild Boys", a song inspired by Russell Mulcahy's ambition to make a full-length feature film based on a book by William S. Burroughs. This song is missing from the album.

Tickets for the event cost around MXN$160.
