  • "Come Up and See Me", "Secret Oktober", and "Late Bar" are the only B-sides performed in recent history (last decade).
  • On the 1993–1994 tour, Duran Duran radically altered "Hungry Like The Wolf", "Girls On Film", "Save A Prayer", and several other songs.
  • Prior to 2003, the band had never played "Wild Boys" with all five original members live.
  • On the 2003–2004 tour the band played several songs that were never released (Virus, Beautiful Colours).
  • From 2003 to 2005, the band played every song off the first album at some point, including Tel Aviv (Orlando, FL).

  • After the "Sing Blue Silver" Tour, "New Moon On Monday" has only been performed less than 15 times. Also, it has never been included on any live album box-sets, or been performed during those shows.
  • Both "Undergoing Treatment" and "One of Those Days" have been on written setlists but for whatever reason removed from shows. Although the band has claimed to play both live before there is no recorded evidence they have ever been played during a live show.
