Question
Hi Al,
Did Duran Duran sing/ perform some Power station hits during their concerts? Why were Arcadia and Power stations disbanded?
Thank you.

Answer
Duran Duran performed both "Election Day" and Some Like It a Hot" during both the '87 Strange Behaviour tour and the  Big Live Thing tour. To my knowledge they haven't played any since then.

John and Andy created The Power Station after finishing up the Sing Blue Silver tour. Everyone was burned out in the band, and they wanted a break from each other and the Duran sound. Simon, Nick, and Roger decided to do something as well so Arcadia was formed. Roger actually played drums on both projects.  The groups were only side projects and Duran Duran is their focus.

Expertise

I have extensive knowledge of the band`s official and promo releases in the US and the UK. I`m not extremely knowledgable in Andy and Roger Taylor`s solo efforts since being away from the band, but I do have a good level of expertise in Arcadia and The Power Station history as well.

Experience

I have been collecting vinyl and CDs now for the last 19 years on the band and their side projects.
