Duran Duran cancelled their Revel Casino show last night, leaving thousands of eighties nostalgists to wander the streets of Atlantic City in disappointment.  The band has since issued a semi-satisfying explanation: Their keyboardist, Nick Rhodes (leftmost in the photo), was suffering from exhaustion and had been advised by doctors to sit out the concert earlier in the day. Understandable, as Rhodes just turned 50 and Duran Duran has been touring pretty much nonstop for the past two years.
