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 has been described as an album “that looks firmly to the future” by Rolling Stone UK, “classic Duran” by The Times, “a blast” by CLASH, “Duran Duran at their best” in The Sun and, “all a fan could want” by the Evening Standard.
A genre-spanning piece of work that once again sees Duran Duran continuing to charge forward sonically and stylistically, the album 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.
Duran Duran were recently announced as nominees to be inducted by the 2022 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Set to continue their 40th anniversary celebrations, Duran Duran will perform at a series of huge summer headline shows across the UK and Europe.
They join Paul Weller, Tom Jones, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Paloma Faith, Tom Grennan, Nile Rodgers and CHIC, Jessie Ware, Primal Scream and Pete Tong & The Heritage Orchestra as headliners for Live at The Piece Hall 2022.
The show is presented by Cuffe and Taylor and The Piece Hall Trust. Nicky Chance-Thompson DL, CEO of The Piece Hall Trust, said: “Once again, Cuffe and Taylor have delivered. Duran Duran are true global superstars and it is an absolute honour to add them to the fantastic headline line up for Live at The Piece Hall 2022.
“It’s been very hard for me to keep this one under my hat and there is no doubt there will be an incredible demand for tickets for this show so I would advise fans to get in quick!”
