Piazza San Giovanni, Roma, Italia: 19-06-2005 is an unofficial Duran Duran live album, recorded during The Astronaut Tour at the Cornetto Free Music Festival, Piazza San Giovanni in Rome, Italy on 19 June 2005.

About the albumEdit

The album is a recording of Duran Duran's performance at the Piazza San Giovanni, a historic area of Rome by the Lateran Palace. This was the third of six shows performed by Duran Duran in Italy during 2005, a period which included an appearance at Live 8: Rome.

The show was part of the Cornetto Free Music Festival, an annual event that takes place in June at three sites; Piazza Duomo in Milan, Piazza del Popolo in Naples and Piazza San Giovanni in Rome.

Duran Duran headlined on the 19 June, with other performances by Velvet, James Blunt, Beck and Italian singer-songwriter Elisa.

This was a festival performance, so it's not quite a full length concert. Duran Duran took to the open air stage and opened with "(Reach Up for The) Sunrise", a song which reached no.2 on the Italian Singles Chart.

Two songs from 80s followed, then the band played "What Happens Tomorrow". When the song finished Simon Le Bon mentioned that it's after midnight. Adding "It's no longer June 19th, but June 20th, thus "Happy Birthday" John Taylor." (45 years old).

A rocking encore of the highly-charged "Girls on Film" and "Rio" closed out the show.
