DURAN DURAN HEAD TO THE O2 IN 2023
Duran Duran are set to bring their FUTURE PAST tour to The O2 on Monday 1 May 2023.
2022 has seen Duran Duran celebrate a landmark year. The band have just been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, a career peak that follows a summer live season of epic proportions – 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, 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, and the cinematic release of new docu-concert film, ‘A Hollywood High’. All this after the huge success of new studio album FUTURE PAST, hailed as Duran Duran at their best by critics and fans alike, four decades into their rich and storied career.
Simon Le Bon said: “2022 has been an extraordinary year for Duran Duran – mainly down to the incredible fans we have around the world. In July we celebrated our years together at Hyde Park as part of the British Summer Time Festival. Next Spring we will be back on home soil once again to continue the party. It’s remarkable to me that as a band, we are still hitting new milestones, still able to introduce the sound of DD to new generations of music lovers. We are truly grateful that we get to do what we do on a daily basis, and that we still love our job as much as we did when we started out some four decades ago.”
Closing an extraordinary year for Duran Duran, a deluxe edition of new studio album ‘FUTURE PAST (Complete Edition)’ will be released on November 25th 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.
