DURAN’S DURATION This job never kills anybody. It’s the stuff you do in between, says Duran Duran

All press / news

INSIDE a cavernous film studio in North London, Duran Duran are adding the finishing touches to the setlist and special effects for their UK tour.

John Taylor, Roger Taylor and unofficial guitarist Dom Brown are rehearsing Hungry Like The Wolf while Nick Rhodes watches on, waiting for his call, and backstage Simon Le Bon is finishing lunch with backing singers Rachael and Anna.

The band have enjoyed UK Top 5 albums in five consecutive decades

The past 12 months have been pretty special for the band, who have enjoyed UK Top 5 albums in five consecutive decades, from the Eighties right up to today.

They have played at the Platinum Party at the Palace — the Jubilee celebration for the Queen — as well as headlined the Opening Ceremony of Birmingham’s 2022 Commonwealth Games.

And if you were one of the 60,000 fans to see their BST Hyde Park show, you’ll know how exceptional it was.

Tomorrow the band kick off their UK tour in Manchester and I’m joining them as they prepare for the seven shows, before they head off to the US for a five-month stint.
