Duran Duran – singer Simon Le Bon, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, bassist John Taylor and drummer Roger Taylor – have been together for more than 40 years and continue to play to huge concert audiences around the world.
Consistently fusing art, technology, fashion and a signature sense of style with their unique and infectious brand of music, they have proven themselves timeless, always innovating and reinventing, to remain ahead of the curve.
Duran Duran’s 2021 album Future Past – their highest charting album in 16 years – was met with widespread critical acclaim. It was described as an album “that looks firmly to the future” by Rolling Stone UK, “classic Duran” by The Times, “a blast” by CLASH, and “all a fan could want” by the Evening Standard.
A genre-spanning piece of work that once again sees them continuing to charge forward sonically and stylistically, Future Past features production by Erol Alkan, Giorgio Moroder and Duran Duran, and guest appearances from Blur’s Graham Coxon, Mike Garson, CHAI, Mark Ronson, Ivorian Doll and Tove Lo.
The Band were recently announced as nominees to be inducted by the 2022 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Set to continue their 40th anniversary celebrations, they will perform at a series of huge summer headline shows across the UK and Europe.
