Duran Duran announced to perform at BST Hyde Park concert series in 2021!
British icons Duran Duran have been announced as the second headliner for London concert series BST Hyde Park 2021, presented by American Express. The band will perform on Sunday, July 11th, in what will be their first London show for six years. Joining them in the UK capital will be Nile Rodgers & Chic and Grace Jones. Tickets are available to purchase at www.bst-hydepark.com/tickets.
Duran Duran are one of the most successful and ground-breaking bands to come out of the UK in the past four decades, a group that defined a generation and continue to prove themselves timeless, always innovating and reinventing, while remaining ahead of the curve. Their much-lauded live shows blend the best of new songs and classics including Hungry Like the Wolf, Pressure Off, Rio, Girls on Film, (Reach Up For The) Sunrise, A View to a Kill and more.
Comprised of singer Simon Le Bon, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, bassist John Taylor and drummer Roger Taylor, Duran Duran have sold over 100 million records, with 21 UK Top 20 hits and 18 US hit singles. Few bands have celebrated such huge global success and still hold major headlining status. This is their BST Hyde Park debut and their only London show of 2021, so a milestone in itself.
“It’s almost unbelievable to us that forty years later we are celebrating this anniversary with a show at BST Hyde Park. It will be a special day for us and hopefully for our audience, who have followed us faithfully for so many years now. Please, come celebrate our long and ragged journey!” says band’s bassist John Taylor.
