The Daily Mirror: (entitled "Still the best boy band on Planet Earth"): "Duran Duran - no joke, these guys may well be Britain's next Rolling Stones. (...) When they brought down the curtain with a rousing encore of White Lines and Girls On Film I have never seen scenes like it."
The Sun: "They (DD) burst with energy from the start. Simon's voice is as powerful as ever. Classics such as Rio got the biggest cheers but their new material went down well, too. (...) Anyone who saw their last UK stage show, at Live Aid 18 years ago, would think not a day had passed."
The Daily Express: "Duran Duran showed they've still got what it takes to drive their fans wild with a storming UK comeback gig last night."
The Daily Star: " On the strength of last night's performance it won't be long before they can pick and choose labels. Welcome back lads."
The Times (4 stars out of 5): "A works outing for the London PR industry.... Last night with their mantelpieces cracking under the weight of Lifetime Achievement Awards they returned to London to find they had become the hottest ticket in town. (...) Duran Duran's songs stand the test of time much better than one would have expected."
London's Evening Standard: " Their entrance was magnificent. They lined up at the front of the stage, stroked their suits, milked the applause and peeled off one by one to play Friends Of Mine, an obscure 1981 album track. (...) For all of Duran's past, the future looks bright."
