hi guys, i had an argument with myself about this - was the club you first played the Rum Runner or Birmingham University? (I live in Wolverhampton now, having moved from Brum) thanks! Ady
THE FIRST PLACE DURAN DURAN EVER PLAYED (WITH STEPHEN DUFFY) WAS BIRMINGHAM ART COLLEGE. BUT WITH SIMON, THE FIRST ACTUAL CLUB THEY PLAYED WAS INDEED THE RUM RUNNER. HOWEVER, THEY ARE PRETTY SURE THEY DID SOME OTHER SHOWS TOGETHER BEFORE THE RUM RUNNER PERFORMANCE. THE HOSTERIA WAS AN EARLY VENUE AND THE HOLY CITY ZOO WAS THE OTHER CLUB THEY PLAYED AT SEVERAL TIMES .
