'ALL YOU NEED IS NOW TOUR' TO HIT UK IN DECEMBER 2011
Following the recent postponement of Duran Duran's UK 'ALL YOU NEED IS NOW' arena tour, originally slated to kick off May 18 in Newcastle and end June 4 in Sheffield, due to singer Simon Le Bon's vocal problems, the band members are delighted to announce today that they have been able to reschedule all eleven concert dates for December, making these special shows an even bigger celebration of the band's new album and their thirty year history.
Now booked to coincide with the pre-Christmas festivities in the UK, the eleven rescheduled dates (all of which will remain in their original venues) will mark the band's first full UK arena tour in seven years, for which they are planning a totally new and spectacular production.

Bassist John Taylor said today "Given the fact that we'd missed the dates in May, we wanted to do something really special for the fans pre-Christmas. It's taken us a minute to clear dates in all of these venues, as this is obviously an incredibly busy time of year, but finally we've been able to make it work and cannot wait to get there!"
