Duran Duran at Madison Square Garden

Last night I went to my first concert at Madison Square Garden to see British super band 'Duran Duran'.  I have always really liked their music and this was the first time I had seen them play live.

I was really impressed with Madison Square Garden.  It holds about 20,000 people which is similar to the O2 Arena in the UK, but somehow it felt smaller and more intimate.  When we arrived we were informed that they had rearranged the seating and that our seats were no longer available, but that we would be given  seats in the front row of the the floor section!  There was a small standing section just in front of us but we had a clear view and were really close to the stage.

I thought Duran Duran were brilliant.  They played a good mix from their new album, 'All You Need is Now' as well as many of their greatest hits, including my favourite 'Hungry Like the Wolf'.   I was really excited when Ana Matronic from the 'Scissor Sisters' joined the band on stage to sing 'Safe' and then Mark Ronson, who produced the album, played guitar during another song!

It was a brilliant night and I really enjoyed my first concert at Madison Square Garden!
