Duran Duran: Original Band Line-Up Set To Meet Fans And Sign Copies Of Their New Single “(Reach Up For The) Sunrise”

Two in-store appearances slated for HMV Birmingham & London stores

Monday 4th October

12.30pm - 2.30pm @ HMV- 38 High Street, Birmingham B4

6.00pm - 7.30pm @ HMV- 150 Oxford Street, London W1

To celebrate the release of (Reach Up For The) Sunrise, which is currently racing up the UK charts, the five original members of DURAN DURAN will fly into the UK on Monday October 4th to sign copies of their new single at the premiere HMV stores in both Birmingham and London.

Hitting both stores in one day, DURAN DURAN will be at HMV's Birmingham High Street store from 12:30pm to 2:30pm on Monday October 4th, and then later the same day at HMV’s flagship Oxford Street store in London from 6.00pm: 7:30pm

"(Reach Up For The) Sunrise," is the band's first single from their eagerly anticipated album ASTRONAUT which is set for release 11th October 2004 on Epic Records.

ASTRONAUT is Duran Duran’s first studio album back together, with the original line-up of Simon LeBon, Nick Rhodes Andy Taylor, John Taylor and Roger Taylor, since “Seven & The Ragged Tiger” in 1983. The album has been co-produced by Duran Duran with Don Gilmore (Good Charlotte, Linkin Park, Avril Lavigne, Pearl Jam) and Dallas Austin (Madonna, Christina Aguilera, TLC, Usher, Pink and George Clinton).

Over the past year, alongside writing and recording for the new record, Duran Duran have performed live to more than half a million fans, with a series of sell out arena and stadium concerts across America, Japan, Australia and the UK. During this time, the band members have also been honoured with no less than three prestigious Lifetime Achievement awards – presented to them by MTV, the British Phonographic Industry and Q Magazine.

Commenting on the forthcoming in-store appearances by the band, a Duran Duran spokesman said: “We are expecting Duran Duran’s dedicated army of fans to turn out in force as both HMV stores have already been inundated by phone calls, based on rumours of the band’s appearance that spread like wild-fire last week. The band members are keen to meet as many people as possible so will only be able to sign one item per person. We would recommend getting there early!”
