Iconic British rock band DURAN DURAN to perform at the Village Stage on Saturday, 16 September , 2017 and the Padang Stage on Sunday, 17 September, 2017

Since their debut in 1981, DURAN DURAN have released fourteen albums, garnered sales of more than 100 million records, and been honoured with numerous prestigious accolades, including two Brit Awards, two Grammy Awards, seven Lifetime Achievement Awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. They are also one of only a handful of artists to have had albums in the US Top 10 across three decades – and one of even fewer to have had an astounding twenty singles land in the Top 20 since their inception.

Duran Duran’s most recent critically acclaimed album Paper Gods debuted at #10 on the Billboard 200, showcasing stellar collaborations with Janelle Monáe, Kiesza, Nile Rodgers and Mr Hudson (amongst others). A sold out arena tour followed, alongside headlining slots at some of the world’s coolest festivals. Later this year, when they play in Singapore for the first time on this world tour, fans can look forward to classics such as ‘Hungry Like the Wolf’, ‘Ordinary World’ and ‘Save a Prayer’ alongside recent hit singles ‘Pressure Off (feat. Janelle Monáe and Nile Rodgers)’ and ‘Last Night in the City (feat. Keisza)’ when they perform at the Village Stage on Saturday, 16 September and at the Padang Stage on Sunday, 17 September.
