Their sound ruled the airwaves and the video waves for many years thanks to their wonderful melodies and incredibly exotic music videos that you would easily see on MTV (yes that happened once believe it or not), and I am speaking of none other than Duran Duran. The band recently announced their 2016 “Paper Gods Tour” to support their latest album of the same name and they will be bringing along Nile Rodgers and Chic as their special guests. Check out the massive press release that I received along with some artwork and the dates. I will return at the close with some additional thoughts.
The Press Release:
December 8, 2015 — (Los Angeles, CA) — In what is promising to be one of the most eagerly anticipated tours of 2016, multi-platinum superstars Duran Duran have announced that they will hit the road for an extensive North American arena and amphitheater tour next year in support of their critically acclaimed album Paper Gods. CHIC, led by guitarist Nile Rodgers, will appear as special guests on almost all of the dates with an additional support act to be announced. Rodgers served as a producer on Paper Gods and has enjoyed a long collaborative history with Duran Duran.
The Paper Gods Tour will kick off on March 28, 2016 in Durham, NC and will be divided into two legs. The first runs through April with shows up and down the East Coast of America into Canada, including Washington DC, Brooklyn, NY, Atlanta, Austin and Montreal. The second leg returns the band to the road stateside in July and continues through early August with shows in Las Vegas, Irvine, San Diego, Toronto and many more.
