a global tribe of music fans united and fueled by the music of Duran Duran.
In the eighties we were such Duranies.
Collective noun for a group of middle-aged women obsessed with the band Duran Duran.
Contrary to popular belief, there are only around 1,000 Duranies, who travel around the world to each and every show that the band play. If ever you wonder why a Duran Duran gig in your area sold out so quickly, it is because The Duranies got there first. Duranies remortgage houses, divorce their partners and abandon their children to fund this extravagent obsession.
Duranies happily pay up to $500 a show for a simple lottery to say hello to the band members.
Duranies travel in packs, usually in groups of 5, although group size varies from 3 up to 17. Dress size does not vary much, averaging around 26. Although they act like cougars, they have no interest in a man unless he can get them in to meet the band.

Sammy: Ah yeah. There's a Duran Duran show on. The Duranies are coming to town.
