Duran Duran, whose Fan Community website is powered by Section 101 technology, has recently announced a North American tour, set to kick off on September 23rd in Everett, WA, with an October 25th stop at the infamous Madison Square Garden in what is sure to be a can’t-be-missed performance.
This is Duran Duran’s first extensive North American tour behind All You Need Is Now, following a brief run of brilliantly reviewed intimate album release shows earlier this year. With a brand new production that the band has designed specifically for these shows, the tour will feature Duran Duran’s biggest hits and the incredible new songs. American alternative pop-rockers Neon Trees will open on the majority of dates.
One of the most celebrated albums of the band’s storied three-decade career, the nine-track digital-only version of ALL YOU NEED IS NOW hit #1 on the iTunes Albums Charts in 15 countries before the release of the 14-track LP earlier this year. Around the album’s release, Duran Duran – who have sold more than 80 million albums throughout their career – graced the cover of Paper Magazine and were all over America’s television screens with performances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Ellen DeGeneres Show (twice!), Jimmy Kimmel Live and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
