Duran Duran, coming to Atlanta, doesn’t live in an ordinary world

All press / news

When they reach a certain level of both success and maturity, some bands will take advantage of that status and rest on their laurels. They’ll play only the classic material at shows, coast along and bask in nostalgia.

Duran Duran will have none of that.

“You’re not kidding!” laughs vocalist Simon Le Bon, calling from California on the eve of the group’s Future Past North American tour’s opening date in late May.

Duran Duran is decades into a career that saw the new wave idols ride early MTV exposure to sales of over 100 million albums, a dizzying number of awards and induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame last year.

But the U.K. band is still constantly looking and pushing forward.


Duran Duran: 7 p.m. Thursday, June 15. $30-$120. State Farm Arena, 1 State Farm Drive, Atlanta. statefarmarena.com.
