Mark Ronson is feeling "nervous" about performing with Simon Le Bon at a special gig in Paris.

The music producer is teaming up with the Duran Duran star for a one-off show in the French capital tomorrow.

"I'm really pretty nervous. I'm going to be playing guitar with Duran, who are a really tight band and who have been playing together for about 25 years," Ronson told the Daily Star. "It's pretty surreal. Simon is going to sing 'Stop Me' with Daniel Merriweather and it's bizarre to hear this voice I've known since I was 10 years old singing our song."

"I really want to nail the guitar parts," he continued. "We've been rehearsing solidly in the lead-up. This is a really special gig. Tim Burgess from The Charlatans is getting on the Eurostar to come and see it too. I'd like to think that afterwards it will lead to doing more stuff with Duran Duran
