SINGAPORE – British pop-rock veterans Duran Duran played a set comprising songs that spanned close to four decades at the Formula One Singapore Grand Prix on Sunday (Sept 17).

Frontman Simon Le Bon and band, dressed in bright colours, got the crowd singing and dancing along to songs like A View To A Kill (1985), Come Undone (1993) and Last Night In The City (2015).

The slight drizzle during the sundown set did not dampen the mood at the Padang Stage.

Le Bon endeared himself to Singapore fans by referencing local fare. “Did you get your nasi goreng?” he asked before singing 1982 hit Hungry Like The Wolf.

He also acknowledged the mix of global fans by pointing out the various countries’ flags in the audience.

“Looking forward to noisy cars going around in circles, with a little bit of music?” he quipped to the F1 crowd, before launching into the band’s James Bond theme A View To A Kill (1985) from the movie of the same name.

It was the band’s second set at the Singapore Grand Prix. They played another set on Saturday (Sept 16) at the Village Stage.
