Praise for Duran Duran's PAPER GODS tour:

“For a British synth-pop band, Duran Duran has a surprisingly strong affinity for funk, one thing that has made its songs durable.”
– New York Times

“The band’s U.S. tour kickoff Monday night at the lovely, intimate Durham Performing Arts Center offered a well-balanced blend of hits spanning their admirable 30-plus year career and new songs from their strikingly fresh current album, “Paper Gods.””
– Atlanta Journal Constitution

“The ‘80s pop pinups – Paper Gods, if you will, to borrow the title of their 14th LP – shook their ageless moneymakers like sexy old pros in a hit-filled set at Tampa’s MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre on Saturday.”
– Tampa Bay Times

“Those who dismiss the band as an '80s relics are doing themselves a disservice. One live listen is all it would take to win over even the most cynical of music snobs. Le Bon hit all the lows and especially the highs, working the stage like a man half his age.”
– Miami New Times

“Their focus at Barclays Center on Tuesday night was last year’s “Paper Gods” album and showing how their music remains fashionable, yet still timeless.”
