All details can be found in the pre-sale section of the MEMBERS tab at www.duranduran.com. Other pre-sales will follow.
Simon Le Bon says: “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.”
Following a run of cinema screenings across 35 countries, with premieres at the legendary Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles and the Vue West End Cinema in London, Duran Duran’s feature length docu-concert film A Hollywood High will stream on-demand globally via Veeps from December 18th – January 2nd.
Fans around the world will be able to experience the film from the comfort of their homes via a premium, ultra-high-definition viewing experience through Veeps.com or the Veeps app on Apple TV, Roku, iOS, and Android.
A Hollywood High is the first Veeps show to be enabled with 4K / UHD, Dolby Digital & Atmos (the highest possible quality, cinema-grade sound and vision available), as well as closed captions and subtitles. Tickets for the stream are available at DuranDuran.veeps.com.
With each stream ticket sold via Veeps, special bundle packages are available, including A Hollywood High cap, T-shirt, exclusive poster, and a very special limited-edition movie program ‘magazine’, complete with two 7″ flexidiscs, which feature Ordinary World and Tonight United live audio from the movie.
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.
You can pre-order it here.
