Adelaide: April 1st 2008 is an unofficial Duran Duran live album, recorded during The Red Carpet Massacre Tour at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre in Adelaide, Australia on 1 April 2008.

About the albumEdit

The album is an incomplete recording of Duran Duran's performance at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre, a 18,000 capacity venue located at Corner Port Rd and Adam St in Hindmarsh. This was the fourth of seven shows in Australia on the tour.

The turnout was solid, with fans coming out on this Tuesday night to see Duran Duran in Australia after a five year gap.

Bang on 8:30, the lights dimmed and the anticipation was electrified. The band's last visit to Adelaide was back in 1983.

Without any support act, Duran Duran kicked off their set with three songs from the Red Carpet Massacre album. This was followed with an arousing reception for "Hungry Like the Wolf", after Simon Le Bon asked the crowd if they wanted to hear something they knew.

From here Duran Duran delved into their back catalogue with hits such as "Planet Earth", "The Reflex", "A View to a Kill" and "Ordinary World".

Simon Le Bon introduced "Ordinary World" by saying "This song is about holding on to something real, when everything seems to be going crazy around you".

At the midway point of the show, the band performed a 20 minute electro set, featuring new versions of songs including "All She Wants Is" and "Last Chance on the Stairway".

The end of the evening saw Duran Duran return for an encore, as strobe lights flashed white for "Girls on Film". The song spanned ten minutes and included band introductions.

The album front cover and concert poster features photography by Stephanie Pistel.
