Duran Duran have been giving fans the lowdown on their new concert film, A Hollywood High.

The film celebrates the British band’s 40-year career and 100 million-plus record sales and includes new interviews, behind-the-scenes video and unseen archival footage. It features a 40th anniversary celebration rooftop set, shot at The Aster in Los Angeles with the iconic Capitol Records Tower — the band’s original record label home — as a backdrop. The band performs hits including A View to a Kill, Come Undone, Notorious, Hungry Like The Wolf, Tonight United and Ordinary World.

Keyboardist Nick Rhodes said: “This was our first U.S. show in several years, so we wanted to do something really special and intimate. After considering many options, a rooftop performance quickly became the frontrunner. It was post-pandemic, we had never done anything like that before, and we had just released our new album — ‘Future Past.’ Somehow it seemed like a magical doorway to the next part of our journey.”

Bassist John Taylor added: “We have had an enduring relationship with the city of Los Angeles since the first time we came to America. We were determined to do something unique to celebrate our four decades together. A rooftop performance in LA with the Capitol Records building across the street and the Hollywood sign looming in the distance sounded perfect and turned out to be an extraordinary night for all of us.”

The DVD and Blu-ray releases 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.
