Duran Duran have announced further release details for their feature-length docu-concert film, ‘A Hollywood High’, which will premiere exclusively on Paramount+ later this month alongside physical product releases on DVD and Blu-ray in early August. Celebrating the band’s four-decade career and love affair with Los Angeles, the movie features new interviews with the band and a legendary rooftop set captured in March 2022, shot with the Capitol Records building – the band’s first record label home – as the iconic backdrop.
The film will premiere exclusively via Paramount+ starting on June 21 and is set to be released via DVD and Blu-ray on August 4 via Lastman Media and Cherry Red Records HERE.
In the UK, the release of ‘A Hollywood High’ will be marked with a special one-night-only London screening event taking place at Outernet on August 3, the day before the official DVD and Blu-ray releases. The film will be screened in full before an exclusive Roger Taylor DJ set where fans can look forward to a carefully curated selection of dance-floor anthems, deep cuts and new discoveries. The event will kick off at 6 pm BST, with Roger’s set at 8 pm. Tickets will be available via DICE with details to follow via all social channels.
Speaking about the event, Drummer Roger Taylor said: “I’m immensely looking forward to DJ’ing at the Outernet in London on August 3rd. Hoping to take everyone on a unique musical journey after this special screening of our film ‘A Hollywood High’.”
Speaking about the concept, keyboardist Nick Rhodes reveals: “This was our first US show in several years, so we wanted to do something really special and intimate. After considering many options, a rooftop performance quickly became the frontrunner. It was post- pandemic, we had never done anything like that before, and we had just released our new album - FUTURE PAST. Somehow it seemed like a magical doorway to the next part of our journey.”
Bassist John Taylor added: “Duran Duran have had an enduring relationship with the city of Los Angeles since the first time we came to America. We were determined to do something unique to celebrate our four decades together. A rooftop performance in LA with the Capitol Records building across the street and the Hollywood sign looming in the distance sounded perfect and turned out to be an extraordinary night for all of us.”
In addition, today additional dates were announced in Montreal, QC on September 20 and Atlantic City, NJ on September 23.

‘A Hollywood High’ was first released globally in cinemas in November 2022, directed by three award-winning industry veterans, Gavin Elder, Vincent Adam Paul and George Scott. Lastman Media and Magus Entertainment are executive producers. The film is distributed and released on DVD and Blu-ray by Cherry Red Records. ‘A Hollywood High’ is the latest in Lastman Media’s VERTIGO series, which creates highly curated ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ events in iconic locations. The theatrically-led series uses VIP experiences to produce a multi-format strategy of exclusive content for fans across the world. Breaking the usual mould of previous music films for TV, the VERTIGO model is both creative and commercial. VERTIGO shoots epic artists in awe-inspiring landscapes and locations, reinventing the live concert film format in an innovative way.
‘A Hollywood High’ follows a wave of landmark achievements for Duran Duran. Their 2022 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame marked a career peak after headlining London’s Hyde Park, performing at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace, closing the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in their home town of Birmingham, and a headline tour across North America which included sold out shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden and three nights at the Hollywood Bowl. A live performance in New York City’s Times Square on New Year’s Eve saw the band lead celebrations counting fans down into 2023 in front of a live audience of over 1 million people on New York City’s streets. All this after the huge success of their latest studio album FUTURE PAST, hailed as Duran Duran at their best by critics and fans alike, four decades into their rich and storied career.
The deluxe edition of ‘FUTURE PAST (Complete Edition)’ is out now via BMG. The 2LP set includes all 15 tracks from FUTURE PAST plus Duran Duran’s cover of David Bowie’s “Five Years”. The first LP is red, the second is green. The gatefold package features a new silver/grey version of the cover art and also includes two 12′′ x 12′′ art booklets. Listen/order HERE.
