Filmed at the MEN Arena in Manchester on December 16th, 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.

Format: DVD
This set includes the Blu-ray, DVD and Audio CD. The discs are the same as those that you can buy individually. If you buy them individually, you would save money. What makes this set 'Deluxe' is you get is a slip case holding a fold out sleeve that will store your three discs, along with a booklet with the credits and some nice B/W stage photography. The packaging is slick, bit is that worth the extra premium over individual discs? That is up to you.

Now that that is out of the way, let's move on to the review!

Upside, the performance is great, the band was on their game. There is just enough by way of extra video effects to keep it visually interesting. However, because of that don't expect the video to look like the direct to HD shows that are on Palladia, as you will be disappointed. Downside, the editing is a little weird at times with slo-mo shots transitioning back to actual speed. B/W and back to color. Couple those with audience shots at what seems like the 'wrong' times. If someone with more knowledge of the band, and the way the band and audience interact during shows was in the edit suite, we could have had a better visual experience. For example, a few of Simon's stage gestures are lost when the camera is off of him, a view of the crowd's faces yelling 'Switch it off' during Planet Earth was absent, etc. I'm just glad this release was not the David Lynch 'Mayan' show. That was artsy to the point of getting in the way of the performance.

The audio mix is good for the video. Just enough reverb of the arena sound was captured to give you that live feeling, however, the mix seems a little off for the CD, it sounds a little softened, not very dynamic, almost out-of-phase at times.

How did I get to 4 stars? Packaging 5/5, Blu-ray 4/5, DVD 4/5, CD 3/5.

I was fortunate enough to catch Duran Duran on the All You Need Is Now tour last fall, and I can tell you first hand that if you are a fan, then this performance is a must have.

Its incredible that thirty years after the New Wave explosion, Duran Duran has released what is probably the best album of their career, next to Rio of course. They are one of my favorite bands, but even I have to admit that as much as half their discography is unlistenable due to the changes that major labels forced upon the band's sound.

If you ever doubted the validity, creativity, and strength of Duran Duran, then A Diamond In The Mind will prove you wrong. The energy and flawless delivery of their early performances are all here, packed with a diverse selection of tunes, a lot of which come from the new record.

Do you realize that as I write this review, Duran Duran are STILL on the same tour for this release?!? They have been touring for almost two years and still have some shows lined up for the end of the year. This is an incredible feat for a young band, but for a group of posh guys in their 50's, that is just unheard of. Very proud to be a life-long Duran Duran fan, especially now that the band is back and better than ever.

I only wish they would have put Tiger Tiger on here as that was the most atmospheric track they played live on this tour and I love the lighting they used for it.

Cheers!

I just watched through the blu-ray and I am very pleased with the quality of the production. The sound quality is excellent. The video also looks very good, very clear and with some nice touches of editing and effects on occasion to spice things up. I am a little curious as to why 2 of the tracks are relegated to the special features, but that was an editorial decision. The show focuses on a selection of the band's hits and tracks from AYNIN. Concert staples "White Lines" and "Careless Memories" make for a very energetic back-to-back in the middle of the show. Also, the bonus feature with the band talking about their 2011 is a nice bonus, and goes nicely with the bonus interview segments from the AYNIN bonus dvd.

Tastefully done and entertaining. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the band this August!

Really, other reviewer? Give up the ghost. If you want "Save a prayer", pop in any of their other many, many DVDs. DD has such a hugely diverse catalogue, let's not gouge the star rating because a single from their second record isn't on their concert film released almost 30 years later.... AGAIN. The same people who complain about this sort of thing are usually the ones who only know them for "Hungry like a wolf". DD have grown, evolved & melded into a still-relevant band well into their career. I'm counting down the days until this is released! Don't let this other fairweather fan fool you, this performance is full of visual candy, familiar songs & new favorites - MORE than enough for even the super-fan. Once again, another stellar performance film from one of the most influential bands ever. Long live Duran Duran!

The band was totally refreshed after working with producer Mark Ronson on their "All You Need is Now" album (one of their best in ages) and they hit the road to celebrate. You can tell the band was in high spirits supporting the new material which sounds just as good played side by side with all of the old hits you know and love. Great set list, sound quality, and picture quality. If there is one Duran Duran concert to own, it's this one. Superb.
