Duran Duran Kicks Off World Tour at SXSW

All press / news

At this year's South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, Duran Duran fans were treated to some major sightings of the British band -- still going strong, albeit with a few lineup changes over the years, three decades after they released their self-titled first album (and the smash hit single 'Girls on Film') in 1981.

After kicking off their new world tour with an 80-minute performance at the famed Austin venue Stubb's, Duran Duran made a visit to the Live From AOL studio.

Simon Le Bon, 52, and Nick Rhodes, 48, sat down for a chat about their latest album, 'All You Need Is Now,' as well as the band's upcoming concerts in North America and Europe.

Rhodes (pictured in shades), said, "It's fun being an indie band again!" and Le Bon enthusiastically agreed, "It's fantastic, isn't it? This is exactly what we're aiming for."
