Edinburgh Castle Concert, 16 July 2009 was the first of two UK shows performed by Duran Duran, during The Summer Tour.

The concert Edit

Held at Edinburgh Castle in Scotland, the show opened during a spell of torrential rain which saw singer Simon Le Bon and keyboard player Nick Rhodes perform "The Wild Boys" dressed in A Clockwork Orange-movie themed suits and top hats. Simon Le Bon teased the audience with the words "Are you dry enough yet?, or are you getting wetter?" then performed a setlist that included many songs from the Red Carpet Massacre album.

The second song "Hold Back the Rain" had the audience seeing the funny side of this aptly-titled track.

"Election Day", a song written in 1985 was sung, with Simon Le Bon" saying that the track had "never" been performed live before (band had actually performed it as part of a medley on tour between 1987-89).

When Duran Duran reappeared for the encore, they featured record producer Mark Ronson on guitar and performed a James Bond-movie medley including "A View to a Kill". This was followed by a medley of "Planet Earth", "Girls on Film" and "Le Freak".
