On June 14th, when tickets went on sale for Duran Duran's June 19th concert at The Joint at the Hard Rock Cafe & Casino in Las Vegas (capacity is 2,050), they sold out in just six minutes, according to promoter Andy Hewitt, who added that the concert was one of the fastest selling shows ever at The Joint. An additional date has been added on July 17th, also at The Joint. The band's first US performance together in 18 years is slated for July 16th at the Pacific Amphitheatre in Orange County, CA.
In additional to their summer concerts and the release of the band's 13-CD boxed set on June 10th on Capitol Records, plans for Duran Duran's upcoming year include: a new album in 2004, release of the Duran Duran Encore Series, A Greatest Hits DVD to be released this fall, re-issues of early Duran Duran albums on August 5th, and the launch of a new fan community that will provide members with special privileges and serve as a link for Duran Duran fans around the world.
