Duran Duran Does Boca

The Red Carpet Massacre brings the band full circle in time to tour.

The sets, as well, show both a creative stretch and a return to the band's spiritual roots. While the first and third ones form a sort of best-of revue, the middle comprises a much-heralded "electro set" that was developed during the band's album-release two-week stand on Broadway. "It's more of a club sound, because there's a lot of thumping electronic drums, and it's quite sparse, because we've stripped the songs down a lot more," Rhodes says. "We've done the acoustic-guitar thing before, the sort of traditional, this-is-what-our-song-sounds-like-without-all-the-augmentation-and-the-arrangement thing. But this seemed very appealing.

"We're always looking for a new way to represent ourselves," he sums up. "That's what keeps it exciting."
