All the elements were in place: a sold-out show, a top 10 album, a super blood moon. Duran Duran were poised to thrill — and thrill they did.

The band opened the show with the title track from their 14th studio album, Paper Gods. To help out with backing vocals, English singer/producer Mr. Hudson joined Duran Duran onstage. That night, I realized that I could sing along and also concentrate on taking photos from the pit.

Knowing that the fans would be ecstatic with a few old hits, Duran Duran followed with “Hungry Like The Wolf,” “A View To A Kill,” and “The Reflex.” Each ’80s and ’90s Duran hit was met with ear splitting screams and enthusiastic dancing.

It was a warm, muggy night and many fans left with sweat streaming down their foreheads. The crowd was a nice mix of couples, families with their kids, and, yes, groups of women who were yelling out, “I love you Simon!” “I love your pants!” “John, marry me!” and “Niiiick!”
