[ # ] There is something that Showtime wants to know about Duran Duran
December 10th, 2019 under Duran Duran, Showtime


There is a New Wave coming to Showtime on December 27th, and you are not going to want to miss it. The network is going to air documentaries about two of England’s biggest New Wave bands from the ’80s, New Order and Duran Duran.

The night starts off at 8p, where we will learn how New Order is reinventing themselves after almost 40 years together. Since I saw them in concert and they sucked, I really don’t care about them. That and if it was about how they went from Joy Division to New Order after singer Ian Curtis committed suicide, then I would be more interested. To me, that is more interesting.

Who is always interesting is Duran Duran. Their doc will focus on their rise to fame in the ’80s and how they defined MTV with racy music videos. It also includes interviews with Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor and Roger Taylor, who are not related. Also not related is original band member Andy Taylor and he will also not be seen in the hour-long special. What we will see is never-before-seen videos of their lives behind the scenes throughout their career that is still going strong after almost 40 years.

Since we will all still be exhausted from Christmas, what better way to relax then watch these docs.

Oh, and I have seen D2 in several concerts, and only one of their shows sucked. Which was the first time I saw them, and yet I went back for more. The other concerts were a blast, even though I once embarrassed myself in front of Le Bon before they went on. Long story.
