      Duran Duran


      Duran Duran are hitting the road in support of their new album, All You Need Is Now and will make a stop at DPAC on August 21.

      The stats on DURAN DURAN are remarkable: a total of over 80 million records sold, 18 American hit singles, 30 UK top 30 tunes, and a global presence which guarantees them huge concert audiences on five continents. More remarkable still is the way they have achieved this, fusing pop music, art, technology and fashion with a unique sense of style and confidence.

      When they first broke in the early 1980s, Duran Duran single-handedly transformed music video from a gimmicky marketing tool into one of the music industry’s most valued assets. With exotic locations, beautiful girls and stunning special-effects, Duran Duran took the visual imperatives of the New Romantic movement to another level. Their impact throughout the 1980’sthis period was such that Rolling Stone magazine - adapting the old Beatles’ sobriquet - dubbed them ‘The Fab Five.’

      Despite the occasional pause and some re-grouping in the 1990’s, Duran today are an unstoppable force who still command the respect of the finest players in the game. On their last album, ‘Red Carpet Massacre’, for example (released on Epic Records, November 2007), they collaborated with top producers Timbaland and Nate ‘Danja’ Hills, as well as long-time Duran fan Justin Timberlake. For their most recentnext offering – their 13th studio album: entitled ‘ALL YOU NEED IS NOW’ (released March 2011) they have written and recorded with Grammy Award-winning producer Mark Ronson – a marriage that all parties agree has been a match made in heaven.

      With their new record in stores, the band are excited to prove to the world that, indeed, All You Need Is Now and their future has never looked brighter. Having outlived most of their contemporaries, they have nothing left to prove and everything to play for. They are uniquely Duran Duran.
