About the albumEdit
The album is a recording of Duran Duran's performance at the Circus Maximus, an ancient Roman chariot racing stadium and mass entertainment venue located in Rome. This was the first of two shows performed by Duran Duran on this day.
The event was a string of benefit concerts that took place on 2 July 2005, in the G8 states and South Africa. The shows were planned to pressure world leaders to drop the debt of the world's poorest nations, with free tickets for the concert audience.
Before the band played "Save A Prayer", Simon Le Bon said "20 years ago we thought maybe we were going to save the world. We sang this song. Now, we have a second chance, and we're going to play it again."
Le Bon later added that "This concert maybe even be better than Live Aid".
Duran Duran are:
- Simon Le Bon - vocals
- John Taylor - bass guitar
- Andy Taylor - guitar
- Nick Rhodes - keyboards
- Roger Taylor - drums
