Duran Duran Announce 2023 Headline UK & Ireland Arena Tour
Duran Duran have topped off a successful year with the announcement of a UK and Ireland tour.
2022 has seen Duran Duran celebrate a landmark year. The band have just been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, a career peak that follows a summer live season of epic proportions – headlining London’s Hyde Park, performing at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace, closing the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in their home town of Birmingham, a headline tour across North America which included sold out shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden and three nights at the Hollywood Bowl, and the cinematic release of new docu-concert film, ‘A Hollywood High’. All this after the huge success of new studio album FUTURE PAST, hailed as Duran Duran at their best by critics and fans alike, four decades into their rich and storied career.
Today, the celebrations continue as Duran Duran announce the FUTURE PAST tour will extend with five huge headline arena shows across the UK and Ireland through Spring of 2023, beginning at Manchester’s AO Arena on April 29th, with 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 will go on pre-sale to DD VIP members from Tuesday 22nd November at 10:00am GMT and General On-Sale from Friday 25th November at 10:00am GMT here. All details can be found in the pre-sale section of the MEMBERS tab at www.duranduran.com. Other pre-sales will follow.
