With 4 months of constant touring in CA, Planet Earth are taking a short break to prepare to go and play out of California. Plans to play New York, San Diego , Vegas ,Arizona and many more places are afoot. Also there is a good chance of a tour in England next year. To cover costs of flights and motels for out of town gigs ,we are looking to add some 80s material to the set list to make it longer. Most clubs dont think there is interest for three hours of Duran Duran, but we shall prove them wrong!!! In the meantime we are working on some 80s New wave hits to keep us in shape while we work on more duran material. This will help us increase bookings and be able to get us more out of town gigs and help us increase the material of Duran songs in the set.
To test out some of the 80s hits we are doing we are playing a few gigs keeping to an 80s theme under the name PLANET 80s. With Le Bon being the vocalist still but other members in the guise of Adam Ant and other 80s heroes. Check the live page for details of the upcoming gigs and check back for Planet Earth upcoming tour of the USA!!!
After taking a break and a change of line up, Planet Earth
step into the millennium with a new set of songs since playing over a year ago.
There have been offers to do shows in Las Vegas, Malaysia, Hogue Barmichaels again,
Paladinos and a variety of other out of state clubs.We have also been asked to appear at the Duran Duran Convention in Orlando ,Florida. Also forthcoming is a documentary on Duran Duran which PLANET EARTH have asked to be interviewed and filmed for. Look for PLANET EARTH touring from June 2001. New photos will be included soon.
DOCUMENTARY ON DURAN
BEING FILMED IN LA , WE NEED HARDCORE FANS TO BRING ALONG THEIR DURAN
COLLECTIONS FOR A DURAN DURAN NIGHT. DATE AND VENUE TO BE ANNOUNCED, EMAIL

We have a second auditon for the TV show YOUR BIG BREAK.
Many other tribute bands have been on this. The first time we were offered an
audition, we had to decline due to a scheduling conflict. If the show gets another season
to run, then maybe in 2001 we will be on it.
Planet Earth recorded two tracks on the Duran Duran tribute
cd FASHION CRIMES, which was released on Pandapop label in Summer of 2000. The two tracks were SERIOUS and
FRIENDS OF MINE. Snippets of both are on the 'sounds' page here.
Jason was interviewed for Calgary Herald, in Canada regarding Bjorn Again who are playing there in June, the guy was doing an article on Tribute bands and wanted to got more of a depth perception of it. Hopefully there will be some of Jason's ramblings on in the newspaper!!!! Its due out mid
June. We'll keep you posted.
