Duran Duran and Mark Ronson Delight Fans at Birmingham Record Shop

All press / news

MUSIC fans were hungry like the wolf to see Birmingham pop idols Duran Duran in a special appearance at a city record shop.

But the ‘Wild Boys’ kept them waiting, turning up two hours late with DJ Mark Ronson at Swordfish Records, in Temple Street.

Simon Le Bon, Roger Taylor, Nick Rhodes and John Taylor signed albums at the city centre store at 6.30pm yesterday ahead of a gig with Ronson at the newly-opened HMV Institute venue last night.

The Birmingham band, whose string of hits includes Girls on Film, Hungry Like The Wolf and View to a Kill, looked vibrant as they were welcomed back to their home city.

More than 200 people packed out the small shop with more fans queuing up outside for a chance to glimpse their idols up close.

“I have been a Duran Duran fan for decades and I know they are always late, so I’m used to it and don’t get annoyed,” said fan John Rowley.

Duran Duran revealed this week their new album will be called All You Need Is Now.
