Duran Duran’s six headline FUTURE PAST arena shows will begin at Manchester’s AO Arena on April 29th, marking the band’s first-ever performance at the venue, followed by two dates at London’s The O2 Arena, Leeds’ First Direct Arena, Birmingham’s Utilita Arena, and the 3 Arena in Dublin. More activity is soon to be announced.
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.”
Tickets for the additional performance at London’s The O2 will be available for a special pre-sale for DD VIP members commencing on Wednesday, 30th November at 10am GMT. All details can be found in the pre-sale section of the MEMBERS tab at www.duranduran.com. Tickets will be on general on-sale from Friday, 2nd December here.
