V Festival: Perth is an unofficial Duran Duran live album, recorded at the V Festival 08, The Esplanade in Perth, Australia on 6 April 2008.

About the album[]

The album is a recording of Duran Duran's performance in Perth, one of four V Festival 08 locations. Duran Duran appeared at all four - Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and the Gold Coast.

Returning to Australia for their first shows in Australia since 2003, this was Duran Duran's debut at the festival.

Duran Duran emerged and quickly launched into "(Reach Up for The) Sunrise". "Hello, Perth", exclaimed Simon Le Bon. The shimmering synths of their debut hit "Planet Earth" followed, a song that had the crowd dancing and singing along.

Soon after a heart-felt rendition of the ballad "Save A Prayer". Then Le Bon asks, "Would anyone like to Bond?" to a rousing response, before the stark orchestral grooves of the James Bond theme song "A View to a Kill" ring out.

Near the end of the show the funky guitars of "Girls on Film" emanate through the venue, creating sheer pandemonium. As the crowd urged on bassist John Taylor with chants of, "Play that funky bass, John!". "We are Duran Duran," said Le Bon. "We are a party band!" as the extended track erupted and with that, they left the stage.

The band returned with the lilting guitars of "Ordinary World", before a majestic version of "The Wild Boys" closed the show.
