About the album Edit
The album is a recording of Duran Duran's late show at the Academy, a venue located at 234 West 43rd Street in New York. This was the third show of the tour, which comprised of twenty dates in twelve countries.
As fans arrived at the Academy, they were greeted with the venue's sign that read 'Tonight Duran Duran Sold Out'.
Two and a half hours after the 'Early Show' began at around 7:30pm, Duran Duran took to the stage for their second performance at the venue on this day. Backed by a string section featuring cello and violins, the band launched their set with a powerful acoustic version of "Planet Earth".
The show closed after midnight with "Rio".
Tickets for the event cost around $22.50.
