Visiting Azizi, the Duran Duran universe in Second Life


After hearing about the opening of Duran Duran sim in Second Life recently, today I finally went to visit the attraction. According to Tateru Nino recent blog post “(Duran Duran Universe/DDU) has attracted just 165 unique visitors. That’s one in ten-thousandactive Second Life users”. As many know already Duran Duran made a promise to have a inworld presence in Second Life back in 2006.

It’s great that they now have a presence in Second Life in 2011 and lets hope it will continue for years to come. I think this is very good news for the SL community because many have waited a long time for this to happen inworld. It’s a really nice sim with lots to explore and do over there.

Duran Duran opened on 15th June 2011.

On 16th June 2011 there was a press release from the Duran Dduran website.

The Duran Duran Universe is just about ready to open! Debuting on June 22nd, the DDU will soon be unveiled for ALL to see. If you haven’t yet registered on Second Life, and would like to take a look around, you can visit SECOND LIFE and get yourself acquainted with every thing before the DD world officially opens its doors.

We have a welcome message from Chrissy, the DDU community manager who keeps everything running smoothly. We are all excited to see you (in avatar form, of course) in the DD Virtual World !

Dear Duran Duran fans and Second Life visitors!

The Duran Duran Universe – the permanent virtual residence of and by the band Duran Duran in Second Life – will soon open its gates.

I am so very thrilled about it that I can hardly find any words. I am very happy to have had the opportunity to be the proud witness to the birth of a magic masterminds brainchild and I feel even more honoured to now share this amazingly beautiful wonderland with you.

From the top of the lipstick tower high in the Azizi sky to the underwater UFO Club in the Sanhedralite sea the Duran Duran Universe is packed full of wonderful artistic treasures, interactive features, innovative multimedia and exciting events and games. All carefully chosen by the band members as part of their motto: “designed to make people party!”

I am looking forward to welcoming you all personally in the DDU – join the adventure and meet me there!

Yours,
Chrissy Welinder
DDU Community Manager

  1. Hi, Daniel! Thanks for creating the fun video. A few things:

    1. I don’t think the count is correct. My name isn’t on there, nor are the names of several folks I saw.

    2. A lot of Duran Duran fans created accounts just to visit the DDU in Second Life. People like lalunarose and others, I noticed, had creation dates of 6/22.

    3. SL8B was going on that week. I’m not sure why they decided to launch then, but it may get more traffic in the coming weeks as people find out about it.
