A Swiss Night is an unofficial Duran Duran live album, recorded during The Strange Behaviour Tour at the Hallenstadion in Zürich, Switzerland on 5 May 1987.

About the albumEdit

The album is a recording of Duran Duran's performance at the Hallenstadion, a 14,000 capacity venue located in the quarter of Oerlikon. This was the first ever show performed by Duran Duran in Zürich.

Duran Duran opened with their Bond-movie theme "A View to a Kill", a song first performed live at the 1985 Montreux Rock Festival in Switzerland. The single reached no.7 in Switzerland, a country where parts of the Bond-movie was filmed.

On tour in support of their 4th studio album Notorious, the band followed with two songs from the new album including the brassy-funk sounding "American Science".

Soon Duran Duran were playing their current single "Meet El Presidente", featuring its strong basslines and performed with a horn section.

During the evening there was a back-to-back performance featuring the band related songs of "Election Day" and "Some Like It Hot". This combination later featured on The Big Live Thing Tour in 1989.

The evening finished with "The Reflex", a Swiss no.10 single.

It would be over six years later when Duran Duran returned to play their next tour show in Switzerland. That was at the Hardtürm Stadion in Zürich on 29 August 1993 during The Dilate Your Mind Tour.
