2020-06-12 | Isle Of Wight Festival 2021

The Isle of Wight Festival has unveiled the lineup for 2021, with Lionel Richie and Lewis Capaldi among the artists still set to perform and new additions including Carly Rae Jepsen and Mavis Staples added to the bill.
Saturday night will see Snow Patrol and Pete Tong and the Heritage Orchestra presents Ibiza Classics co-headline, with Duran Duran due to close the festival on the Sunday.
Bassist John Taylor said: ''All of us in Duran Duran were disappointed by this year's cancellations and postponements, most notably The Isle of Wight Festival.
''It seems to me that now more than ever, we need, as human beings, to be able to connect - sharing common space, making noise together, and celebrating both our diversity and our commonality, our passions and our collective values. I look forward to being at the festival next year with my bandmates and celebrating 40 years of music-making - and engaging in that great unifying experience that is LIVE MUSIC!''
And frontman Simon Le Bon added: ''We were so looking forward to playing The Isle of Wight Festival this year. You can imagine how disappointed we all were when the show got postponed - but of course it had to be that way. Now that it has been rescheduled, it's the best bit of news I've had in all of these C-19 lockdown days. Isle of Wight Festival 2021, bring it on!'' (Info: contactmusic.com)

2020-04-06 | John Taylor was Covid-19 positive

From John Taylor: DEAR FRIENDS OF MINE after giving some thought to this, I have decided to share with you that I tested positive with the Corona Virus almost three weeks ago.
Perhaps I am a particularly robust 59 year old - I like to think I am - or was blessed with getting only a mild case of Covid 19 - but after a week or so of what I would describe as a 'Turbo-charged Flu', I came out of it feeling okay- although I must admit I didn't mind the quarantine as it gave me the chance to really recover.
I am speaking out in answer to the enormous amount of fear being generated by the pandemic, some of it entirely justified, and my heart goes out to everyone who has had to deal with real loss and pain. But I want to let you know that it isn't always a killer, and we can and will beat this thing.
Sending LOVE to all my Homies and Fans, in Italy particularly, the UK and the US and everywhere in the world I have been lucky enough to visit on my travels with DURAN DURAN.
Cannot wait to be back onstage again, sharing new music, love and joy. Stay safe, stay connected and get creative! Love John. (Info: facebook.com/duranduran)

2020-03-16 | DD and Giorgio Moroder

"When we first formed Duran Duran, we often spoke about our dream producer being Giorgio Moroder. It's taken a while for the stars to align but finally, we got to collaborate with the maestro on a couple of songs for our new album. What a thrill it was, the tracks have turned out just the way we always imagined they would..." Nick Rhodes - London

2020-03-13 | The Times

"The studio sessions are quite exhausting... we are working with the same cast; it’s like a soap opera - says John- that’s why collaborators become so important as you need to keep the spirit lively”. Rhodes says the new album is more "handmade" and "guitary”. About the themes of #DD15, John says Simon took inspiration from “the challenges of long-term relationships...” (Info: duranasty.com).

He talks about being a lot in the studio, writing lyrics, he mentions one of his favorite tracks on the album and all the collaborations, including the Moroder one which gives an eurodisco flavor to some of the tracks of #DD15.

“I look at film of The Rolling Stones at Hyde Park back in ’69 and think of all the great acts who’ve performed there since. It really is an honour to add the name Duran Duran to that roster, and to play our music at one of the world’s greatest inner city locations at BST Hyde Park.” – Simon Le Bon.

2020-02-11 | New cover of Save A Prayer

Bob Moses (Jimmy Vallance and Tom Howie) showcased its artistic bona fides with the release of the EP Unplugged. Shared in December 2019. The EP finishes with a captivating cover of Duran Duran's 1982 hit “Save a Prayer,” a song Bob Moses first performed live during a stop at the SiriusXM studio and couldn't stop mulling over. “First of all, we love that Duran Duran song,” Vallance says. "It's maybe collectively our favorite Duran Duran song. We have a friend who is mutual friends and sent it to them. I think they've probably heard it, but we haven't heard back.” “Maybe they think it sucks,” Howie says. “Maybe one day,” Vallance says, “we're gonna get Simon Le Bon to give us a call [and] be like, 'Nice cover, boys.'” Info: miaminewtimes.com.

2020-01-13 | GQ: James Bond theme songs ranked

As we patiently wait to find out who’s been enlisted to provide the theme song for No Time To Die, we take a look back at all of the Bond songs and decide which are the best of the bunch, once and for all. Here are all the 007 songs so far, ranked from worst to best... and No.4 is "A View To A Kill" by Duran Duran ... One of the few Bond themes that can start a disco; the ridiculous camp swagger of Duran Duran was a perfect fit for the final appearance of Roger Moore. “Dance into the fire” might be terrible advice, but here it sounds intoxicating.

2020-01-10 | Jelling Musikfestival 2020

British music icons Duran Duran to headline Jelling Musikfestival 30th May 2020
In their only Danish performance in 2020, global hit-makers Duran Duran will return to Scandinavia to headline the iconic Jelling Musikfestival. On Saturday, the 30th of May, singer Simon Le Bon, bassist John Taylor, keyboardist Nick Rhodes and drummer Roger Taylor will perform on the main stage in front of an audience of 35,000 people. ”I’m extremely pleased that Duran Duran will play in Jelling this year. They have an amazing catalogue of songs and are one of most significant bands to come out of the UK in the last 40 years. Now playing better than ever, this will be their only show in Denmark in 2020,” says Lars ‘Charlie’ Mortensen from Jelling Musikfestival. More infos and tickets on jellingmusikfestival.dk.

2020-01-03 | There’s Something You Should Know (Review)

“Good songs. That was what it was about,” keyboardist Nick Rhodes says at the beginning of the 2018 documentary Duran Duran: There’s Something You Should Know. Given the staying power of the group’s biggest hits, it’s hard to argue with him. Produced by the BBC and currently streaming on Showtime, the film runs through the band’s career highlights in a scant 58 minutes, though I’m not sure lengthening its running time would make a difference either way.
“What did I want to be when I grew up? I wanted to be adored,” perpetually handsome lead singer Simon LeBon tells us at the outset. He’s racing around some English city – Birmingham, I think – in a vintage sports car, an age-appropriate echo of the globe trotting jet setters the band made themselves out to be. If you hated Duran Duran as a kid because they were good looking guys who got all the girls, I’ve got bad news for you; they’re still pretty good looking guys now that they’re pushing 60. Likable and talented, too. Maybe their image wasn’t so much construction as projection, a manifestation of the men they would become. Chalk it up to the power of positive thinking or just hard work plus dumb luck... full review on decider.com.
