Summer 2022 will see Duran Duran perform live at headline tour dates across the UK, Europe and America, including a much-anticipated first London headline show in over six years at Hyde Park on July 10th. This will follow a host of massive outdoor shows at some of the UK and Ireland’s most beloved venues – Dublin’s St Anne’s Park, York’s Castle Howard, Inverness’ Caledonian Stadium, The Piece Hall at Halifax, as well as headlining Rock In Rio Lisbon and The Lytham Festival. Full tour dates are listed here.
Fast forward to November and Duran Duran are set to be honoured as inductees for the 2022 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame at the 37th Annual Ceremony, taking place November 5th at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, California.
With a career that has seen more than 100 million record sales worldwide, 21 UK Top 20 tunes and 18 American hit singles, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction truly cements the multi-GRAMMY, BRIT Award and Ivor Novello winners as one of the most successful and influential bands of all time.
‘TONIGHT UNITED’ is taken from Duran Duran’s new album FUTURE PAST – their highest charting in 16 years and met with widespread critical acclaim. It has been described as an album “that looks firmly to the future” by Rolling Stone UK, “classic Duran” by The Times, “a blast” by CLASH, “Duran Duran at their best” in The Sun and “all a fan could want” by the Evening Standard.
A genre-spanning piece of work that once again sees Duran Duran continuing to charge forward sonically and stylistically, the album features production by Erol Alkan, Giorgio Moroder and Duran Duran, and guest appearances from Blur’s Graham Coxon, Mike Garson, CHAI, Mark Ronson, Ivorian Doll and Tove Lo.
