Duran Duran will celebrate its upcoming album in grand fashion with nine shows at the Barrymore Theater on Broadway in New York. The gigs are set for Nov. 1-2, 3, 5-6 and 8-10 and will feature complete performances of "Red Carpet Massacre," due Nov. 13 via Epic. The album's first single is "Falling Down," which was co-written and produced by Justin Timberlake.
"We have made an album that we are all really proud of and we wanted to present it in a very unique way," frontman Simon LeBon says. "Staging a run on Broadway is something that we've often talked about over the years -- but the time has never seemed right until now."
Producer Timbaland was behind the boards for "Nite-Runner," "Skin Divers" and "Zoom In." As keyboardist Nick Rhodes previously told Billboard.com, "I'm always personally really inspired by working with urban producers, moreso than rock producers. They really bring something to the songs that we don't have completely covered, whereas with rock producers, often I find [they suggest] things we'd do ourselves naturally anyway."
Here is the track list for "Red Carpet Massacre:
"Red Carpet Massacre"
"Box Full o'Honey"
"She's Too Much"
"Dirty Great Monster"
"Last Man Standing"
