Duran Duran drop dates for Leicester shows ahead of summer 2022 UK tour
Duran Duran have announced dates for their UK warm-up shows ahead of their summer 2022 tour. Fans of the 80's band (Duranies - you know who you are) will be delighted to hear that the pop group will be making an appearance right here in Leicester.
With the recent success of their 15th studio album FUTURE PAST, the Girls on Film singers have confirmed headline dates across the UK and Europe. Duran Duran will be playing at the O2 Academy in University Road on May 21 and 22.
Local fans can purchase the tickets from April 22 and can expect to hear tracks from the new album, as well as some of their classic hits.. With two dates to pick from, fans are offered a rare chance to see the stadium-filling icons of British music, hear Hungry Like the Wolf, and still catch a cab home at the end of the night.
The group have sold more than 100 million records worldwide, scored 21 UK Top 20 tunes, 18 American hit singles, and were recently announced as nominees to be inducted into the 2022 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame – cementing the multi-Grammy, BRIT Award and Ivor Novello winners as one of the most successful and influential bands of all time.
The Leicester warm-up shows lift the curtain on a huge summer live season that will see the band’s much-anticipated first London headliner show in six years at Hyde Park, following a host of other dates at some of the UK and Europe's most beloved venues.
Dublin’s St Anne’s Park, York’s Castle Howard, Inverness’ Caledonian Stadium, The Piece Hall at Halifax, headlining Rock In Rio Lisbon and The Lytham Festival - just to name a few - but full tour dates can be found here.
With over 40 years at the forefront of British music, Duran Duran continue to play for massive crowds around the world, consistently fusing art, technology and fashion with their unique sound.
Tickets go on general sale at 10am on April 22.
