Diamond in the Mind: Live 2011, was filmed at the MEN Arena in Manchester, England on December 16, and features a set list that's heavy on the classics, yet respectful of the band's well-received, Mick Ronson-produced All You Need Is Now. A winning blend of style and substance, it's remarkable how well Duran Duran have aged since their '80s heyday. The band tears through ancient (by pop culture standards) radio staples such as "The Reflex" and "Hungry Like the Wolf" with the same enthusiasm that they afford more recent offerings like "Girl Panic" and "Before the Rain," teasing the audience with a rowdy mash-up of 1984's "Wild Boys" and Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "Relax" before sealing the deal with a seven-and-a-half-minute version of "Rio."
Filmed at the MEN Arena in Manchester on 16 December 2011, this stunning Duran Duran live show is the perfect combination of great music, amazing visuals and iconic style which has been the band s trademark throughout their career. Following the release of their acclaimed All You Need Is Now album, this concert combines new songs from that release with their classic hits. Whether in the studio or the live arena, Duran Duran are masters of their craft and this latest concert bursts with energy and oozes class in the way that only they can.
