Duran Duran bring Kraftwerk to Broadway

During their currently ongoing 9 date new-album-release-concert-extravaganza on Broadway in NYC, Duran Duran has split their set into three parts. The first part contains tracks from the new album and the third part is the "hits!" runthrough, to keep fans happy going home. But we're going to take a closer look at the middle, second part. The part that has been refered to as the "techno set" or "electro set".

Combined with some of their own tracks, Duran Duran (for this part of the show lined up in a straight Kraftwerk-like line) performed covers of Kraftwerk's "Showroom Dummies" and "Warm Leatherette" from The Normal. The complete list for their techno/electro set was:
  • Showroom Dummies
  • Last Chance on the Stairway
  • All She Wants Is
  • Warm Leatherette
  • I Don’t Want Your Love
  • Skin Trade

So, what did it sound like? And what did it look like? Well ... You be the judge.

w00t! Nicely done DD! A lot better than the stadium setups form their glory days. Good to see there is still some spark left in them.
Also the 2000+ Kraftwerk is still an inspiration to other bands so it seems.
