Duran Duran bring 80’s dance party to California Mid State Fair

Duran Duran brought their latest Paper Gods tour to the California Mid State Fair in Paso Robles, CA on July 27, and it quickly turned into one huge dance party!

Openers Chic with Nile Rodgers kicked off the party with an over an hour set that included all of their own huge party jams, but also a medley of Rodgers produced classic hits, from Diana Ross to Sister Sledge to David Bowie's 'Let's Dance. It was one hell of a way to kick off what became one incredible night of music. Chic's set was a satisfyng show in itself, but the crowd was more than ready for Duran Duran!

Simon LeBon led a set of amazing hits that crossed the years, and while they obviously have had hits in other decades besides the 80's, we correlate their biggest hits for that special time when MTV kicked in and Duran Duran were EVERYWHERE! Nick Rhodes was missed as he was dealing with a family matter, but keyboard player and band friend MNDR (Amanda Warner) more than adequately filled in. Nile Rodgers also came back out and joined Duran Duran during their set as well, on tracks he produced for the band. I especially enjoyed the David Bowie 'Space Oddity' tribute mashed up with the band's 'Planet Earth.' Check out all the photos and video from the show below.

Hollywood Vampires take a massive bite out of the California Mid State Fair

The Hollywood Vampires were out for blood in their final tour date of 2016 at the California Mid State Fair on July 25 and it was a kick ass pleasure to get to see the Super group in this awesome setting.

The Alice Cooper fronted band, featuring the return of Joe Perry (who collapsed onstage at a gig a couple of weeks before), Johnny Depp, Matt Sorum, Robert DeLeo, Tommy Henriksen and Bruce Witkin made their way through cover jams of all the greats including Spirit, David Bowie, The Doors, T. Rex, The Beatles, Love, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, Motorhead, The Who, Pink Floyd and also some Alice and Aerosmith. Toss in a couple of tracks from their self titled album and it certainly was a night to remember for the band that got it's name as the group Alice used to run with in Los Angeles back in his serious drinking days. The encore including an appearance from Phil Collen of Def Leppard and Eric Kretz of Stone Temple Pilots! Check out photos and some awesome video from the show below.
