About the albumEdit
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 7th of eight shows performed in the state of California in 1993.
The evening began with opening act The Cranberries, an Irish band featuring singer Dolores O'Riordan. Almost two years later in 1995, Dolores O'Riordan performed "Linger" with Simon Le Bon at the Pavarotti & Friends Concert.
Taking to the stage for their first ever show in San Jose, Duran Duran launched into "Too Much Information". Touring with an elaborate stage designed by opera and film designer Stefanos Lazaidis, the band continued with the US Billboard Hot 100 no.1 single "A View to a Kill".
The show was performed on the day Frank Zappa died, a musician and composer who Warren Cuccurullo had previously worked with. As a tribute Cuccurullo played Frank's guitar instrumental "Watermelon In Easter Hay" from the album Joe's Garage, but unfortunately the track is not included on album.
Tickets for the event cost around $21.50.
