Chicago: May 14, 2008 is an unofficial Duran Duran live album, recorded during The Red Carpet Massacre Tour at the Rosemont Theater in Chicago, IL, USA on 14 May 2008.

About the albumEdit

The album is a recording of Duran Duran's performance at the Rosemont Theatre, a 4,300 capacity venue located in the suburb of Chicago which opened in 1995. This was the only show performed in Chicago on the tour.

Duran Duran opened the show with three new songs from the Red Carpet Massacre album. "Hungry Like the Wolf" and the band's debut single "Planet Earth" followed.

During the show, the band took a 20 minute break from the regular style of concert to perform an electro set. The core foursome all lined up behind electronic keyboards on stands in Kraftwerk style, as syncopated lights swirled behind them. Songs that scored a robotic rock makeover included "All She Wants Is" and "Skin Trade".

The evening finished with a special encore, featuring a slightly different performance of "The Chauffeur". The track began with icy keyboard chills and guest guitarist Billy Corgan from The Smashing Pumpkins appearing on stage. Billy never stepped up to the mic, but contributed on guitar to add some signature distortion to the track's eerie flare. After a quick removal of his cap and bow of his head he left to let Duran Duran finish the show with "Rio". Simon Le Bon had previously performed "Night Boat" on stage with Billy in London during a show by The Smashing Pumpkins on 23 May 1998.
