The Ritz 82 is an unofficial Duran Duran live album, recorded at MTV's Rock 'n' Roll Ball Show, the Palladium in New York, NY, USA on 31 December 1982.

About the album[]

The bootleg was mislabeled as a recording from 8 August 1982 at the Ritz, but on that date Duran Duran were performing at Poplar Creek in Chicago, IL, USA, as a support act for Blondie's Track Across America Tour.

This bootleg has also appeared on other mislabeled unofficial albums including Live in Central Park and  Live at the Savoy, because during this period Duran Duran never played at any of these venues.
