(ATLANTIC CITY, NJ) -- British music icons, Duran Duran, take the stage on Saturday, September 23 at Ocean Casino Resort's Ovation Hall. They are known for their award winning songs such as "Hungry Like the Wolf", "Girls on Film", "Rio", "Ordinary World", and many more. Showtime is 8:00pm.
The band consists of Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor and Roger Taylor. Last year served as something of a landmark year for Duran Duran, having just been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, a career peak that followed a summer live season of epic proportions – headlining London’s Hyde Park in front of 60,000 people, performing at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace and closing the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in their home town of Birmingham, not to mention a headline tour across North America which included sold out shows at New York City’s Madison Square Garden and three nights at the Hollywood Bowl.
The cinematic release of their new docu-concert film, A Hollywood High followed, before the band capped off the year with a spectacular performance in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, counting fans down into 2023 in front of a live audience of over 1 million people on the streets of Manhattan. All this after the huge success of new studio album Future Past, hailed as Duran Duran at their best by critics and fans alike, four decades into their rich and storied career.
In a press release about the tour Simon Le Bon said, “It’s remarkable to me that as a band, we are still hitting new milestones, and introducing the sound of DD to new generations of music lovers. We are truly grateful that we get to do what we do on a daily basis, and that we still love our job as much as we did when we started out some four decades ago.”
Enlisting the help of some of the most exciting names of the last 50 years, with Future Past, Duran Duran have delivered another incredible genre-spanning piece of work that once again sets them apart from the pack. Working alongside DJ / producer Erol Alkan and pioneering Italian composer / producer Giorgio Moroder, who added his magic to create two instant future classics (‘Beautiful Lies,’ and ‘Tonight United’), as well as some of the most unexpected and inspiring names in pop – including Swedish hitmaker, Tove Lo on ‘Give It All Up,’ ‘Queen of Drill’ Ivorian Doll on ‘Hammerhead’ and Japan’s CHAI on ‘More Joy!’. In addition, Blur’s Graham Coxon co-wrote and lends his guitar to several tracks on the record and David Bowie’s former pianist Mike Garson adds an exquisite sonic layer to album closer ‘Falling’. The record, which was recorded across studios in London and LA over lockdown, also features long-time collaborator Mark Ronson who co-wrote and played on ‘Wing,’ and was mixed by Mark ‘Spike’ Stent.
The two time GRAMMY winning group that has sold over 100 million records, has 18 American hit singles and 21 UK Top Tunes continue to perform all over the world since 1980. They have 9 Gold Records, 6 Platinum Records, and 3 Multi-Platinum Records in their catalog. In addition, they have 8 Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, 2-time Ivor Novello Award winners, 2-time BRIT Award winners, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Award for Style presented by the city of Milan, were MTV ‘Video Visionary Award’ recipients, O2 Silver Clef’s Spotify Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, and ASCAP Golden Note Award recipients.
