Iconic British rock band duran duran will perform in New Orleans as part of their ongoing future past tour. With six platinum records and 18 American hit singles, these new wave pioneers have consistently fused art, technology, fashion, and their unique musical style.

The band comprises singer Simon Le Bon, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, bassist John Taylor, and drummer Roger Taylor, who have been performing together for over four decades. In October 2021, Duran Duran released their fifteenth studio album, FUTURE PAST, which features collaborations with an array of talented artists such as Erol Alkan, Giorgio Moroder, Mark Ronson, Graham Coxon, Tove Lo, Mike Garson, Ivorian Doll, and CHAI. The album received critical acclaim and was their highest-charting album in 16 years.

The band’s newest single with Tove Lo, “GIVE IT ALL UP,” is a minimal dance track. The band supported the track with a handful of remixed, stripped, and instrumental versions. Heavily designed for club nights, this single sees a maturation from classic 80s disco energy to a darker tinge of house.

Over the past 12 months, Duran Duran has performed live at prestigious events such as the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee concert at Buckingham Palace and headlined Hyde Park. Now, Duran Duran is on a massive headline tour of North America, including sold-out shows at venues such as New York’s Madison Square Garden and three nights at the Hollywood Bowl.
