Duran Duran are hitting the road in support of their 14th studio album, ‘Paper Gods’, and reach The O2 in London on 8 December 2015.
Tickets go on sale on 19 June and are available at AXS.com or by calling 08448 24 48 24.
Singer Simon Le Bon, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, bassist John Taylor, and drummer Roger Taylor recorded the new album in London with producers Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson, Josh Blair, and Mr Hudson.
Set for release on 11 September, the record features special guests Janelle Monáe (on the first single ‘Pressure Off’), former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante, Kiesza, and even Lindsay Lohan.
“It really goes back to that strange early Duran mix: the hard-edged pop, coexisting with this dark, weird, experimental side,” John Taylor says of the album.
“It’s great to be able to lift people’s spirits — and your own — with a strong shot of pure pop, but the world we live in isn’t all just made of that stuff, so it seems natural to me that we have kept one foot in the darker, more Gothic side of life,” adds Rhodes.
Formed in Birmingham in 1978, Duran Duran have sold more than 100 million records worldwide and scooped multiple Grammy, BRIT, Ivor Novello, and MTV Video Music Lifetime Achievement Awards.
