Duran Duran Announce London Launch Party For ‘A Hollywood High’
Duran Duran have announced further release details for their feature-length docu-concert film, A Hollywood High, which will premiere exclusively on Paramount + later this month in the US, UK, Canada, Italy and France, alongside physical product releases on DVD and Blu-ray in early August.
Celebrating the band’s four-decade career and love affair with Los Angeles, the movie features new interviews with the band and a legendary rooftop set captured in March 2022, shot with the Capitol Records building – the band’s first record label home – as the iconic backdrop.
The film will be released via DVD and Blu-ray on 4 August via Lastman Media and Cherry Red Records and will premiere via Paramount+ from 21st June.
The DVD and Blu-ray releases will include 20 minutes of exclusive extras, including unseen documentary footage, an additional song recorded at the live performance and highlights from a Q&A the band did in LA around the original cinema release of the film. Additional product bundles will be available that will include limited edition recordings from the show released as flexi-disc test-pressings, housed in specially designed booklets, and numbered signed items from the band, available here.
In the UK, the release of A Hollywood High will be marked with a special one-night-only London screening event taking place at HERE at Outernet on 3rd August, the day before the official DVD and Blu-ray releases. The film will be screened in full before an exclusive Roger Taylor DJ set where fans can look forward to a carefully curated selection of dance-floor anthems, deep cuts and new discoveries. The event will kick off at 6 pm BST, with Roger’s set at 8 pm. Tickets will be available via DICE? with details to follow via all social channels.
Drummer Roger Taylor said: “I’m immensely looking forward to DJ’ing at the Outernet in London on August 3rd. Hoping to take everyone on a unique musical journey after this special screening of our film ‘A Hollywood High’.”
