Movie Reviews

The deluxe set is SO awesome!
Dorrie Wheeler | 10/30/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Duran Duran-Live From London is the first official Duran Duran concert DVD released following the reuniting of the original line-up of Simon LeBon, Nick Rhodes, John, Andy and Roger Taylor. Coming Home Studios has released this set in a deluxe and standard edition. Both sets include a 20 set concert taped in 2004 during the groups sold out tour. Like all Duran Duran releases, this set has a ton of great bonus material and is very unique. You are buying much more than just a concert DVD.

The concert itself opens with the first single from the reunited Duran's album Astronaut. The crowd goes wild upon hearing Simon Le Bon sing, "The music between us." Following the new song Simon launches into a string of classics, "Hungry Like The Wolf," "Is There Something I Should Know," and "Union of the Snake." The set list itself is heavy with the most well known Duran Duran songs but die hard Duranie's will be pleased that fan favorites such as "Night Boat," and "New Religion" made the set list. The group look and sound great. Like all great Duran Duran shows the set design is awesome, the screen behind the group emits colors and abstract images and the home audience is able to relive the Duran Duran concert experience. Duran Duran share the screen with their anime counterparts during the performance for "Careless Memories." It's always bittersweet when the group performs this song because more often than not it appears closer to the end of the set list so you can prepare for your Duran Duran concert experience to come to a close soon. The band introductions are a highlight of the Duran Duran show and yes they are included--complete with the "Play the fu**ing bass John." During the "Astronaut" tour Simon was introduced by a random girl from the audience, for this show he was introduced by keyboard player Nick Rhodes. The group closes out the show with "Girls on Film" and "Rio."

On to the bonus features. The DVD includes a really great documentary that is presented with scenes in color and black and white. The group members appear on the DVD in their order of joining the band. So first you see Nick and John followed by Roger, Andy and last but definitely not least Simon LeBon. Each member and other members discuss how that particular person came to be a member of Duran Duran. Once the group gets past how they came to be they discuss their musical influences and their rise to the top of the pop music industry in the early 80's. This documentary is especially interesting because it's probably the first time many fans will see all five members discuss the break up and how they were feeling around 1985. Simon compares the feeling to water draining out of a tub. John describes just barely being able to hold on due to the pressures of the fame. Roger laments that he feels that everybody was probably just at a different place. There is no real discussion of Duran Duran 1986-2000. Fast forward to what one can assume is sometime around late 99 or during 2000. Simon details that he called John on the phone for a talk. Several phone calls later Duran Duran--the original five were together again. The documentary also shines the spotlight on long time sax player Andy Hamilton who has been with the group for 23 years. There is a lot of really great info in this documentary and fans should be pleased.

In addition to the documentary both the standard and deluxe edition include song commentaries, and an image gallery. The deluxe edition includes the song "I Don't Want Your Love" in 3D. This is a great idea as Duran Duran is always on the cutting edge of trying new things. It might have been better with a more high energy song like "Rio." Whereas the original version of "I Don't Want Your Love," is almost techno, the version performed is a more slowed down rock version. Late in the song Simon is joined on stage by background singer Sara Brown. The concert DVD let's users choose between 5.1 SRS, 5.1 Multi and 5.1 DTS sound. The booklet includes pictures from the show, the track list for the DVD (CD and 3D glasses in the deluxe edition) and DVD credits.

The deluxe edition includes a 10 song CD with live songs from the show. The songs included on the CD are the biggest hits and one song from the groups 2004 CD "Astronaut."

""Live in London" is a winning DVD featuring the reunited Duran Duran (Simon LeBon, Nick Rhodes, Andy Taylor, John Taylor, and Roger Taylor) in concert during their 2004 world tour in Wembley Arena. England's Fab Five ruled the 1980s with a string of pop hits and flashy videos, but this sold-out performance shows that these fortysomethings are as lively and energetic as they were in their multiplatinum heyday. They deliver solid performances of many of their hits ("Hungry Like the Wolf," "The Reflex," "Girls on Film") as well as the singles "(Reach Up For the) Sunrise" and "What Happens Tomorrow" from their 2004 "Astronaut" LP. They even dig deep into their catalogue and unearth an obscure album cut, 1981's "Waiting for the Night Boat." And they also give impressive renditions of later hits "Notorious" and "Ordinary World." But the real treat is "Careless Memories," which incorporates Japanese animation into the live performance. This DVD also features audio commentary: each member gives their $.02 on two songs. In addition, we also get a half hour documentary featuring interviews with the band. For diehard fans, these interviews don't reveal anything new, but it's a nice piece that gives a history on Duran Duran. If you buy this, the deluxe edition, you also get a bonus audio disc that contains 10 songs from the DVD. If you're thinking this is merely a sequel to "Arena," you'd be very wrong. Unlike that 1984 concert album, the performances here sound exactly what a live record should be, and you can definitely feel a strong connection between the audience and the band. If you're a casual listener, then you can get either the standard or deluxe edition of this DVD. But I can't understand why any true Durannie would want to skip the deluxe edition. In addition to the cool packaging (with 3-D glasses!), the deluxe edition also has a solid audio disc as a bonus. Diehard fans would be foolish to miss it."
The Ultimate Pop Icon group of the 80's

"All I can say is what an amazing ride this band has had for the last 25 years. I don't think since ABBA has a band influenced and set the standard for pop music across the globe like Duran Duran. It is amazing to me that a MTV generated pop band is still making great tunes after all these years. I watched this concert on cable and I was completly shocked by the energy and power that came from this band. The feeling that one will feel while watching Simon and his bandmates belt out all those classic hits like Planet Earth, Careless Memories, Girls on Film and Wild Boys will make the hair on your back stand up. Then the seductive emotional ballads like Come Undone, Save A Prayer and Ordinary World will leave you thinking about yourself and your life. I would not call myself a fan of Duran Duran in the 80's. I was listening to so many other pop acts. Duran Duran should have a place in the rock-n-roll Hall Of Fame. They are without a doubt the GREATEST POP BAND OF ALL TIME. Buy this DVD and enjoy Duran music from the past and truly great songs from today."
