Duran Duran are thrilled to announce their North American fall tour, set to kick off September 23rd in Everett, WA and will include a show at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington DC on October 16th. After a brief run of intimate album release shows this past Spring, the band will return to this side of the pond for eagerly anticipated live dates behind their critically acclaimed 13th studio album ALL YOU NEED IS NOW, produced by Mark Ronson and out on S-Curve Records. With performances from coast to coast that will include the Nokia Theater in LA and Tower Theatre in Philadelphia, the band will play their biggest hits and the incredible new songs that have inspired many to declare that Duran Duran are truly having a big moment in 2011.

With a brand new production that the band members have designed specifically for the North American run, these shows follow Duran Duran’s brilliantly reviewed live shows earlier in the year.  American alternative pop-rockers Neon Trees will join the band as special guests on select dates, including Washington DC.

Back in the UK, the Duran Duran rumor mill was recently running on high until the band confirmed that indeed they had reunited supermodels Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen, and Yasmin Le Bon for their “Girl Panic!” video, which superstar director Jonas Akerlund recently shot in London in collaboration with Harper’s Bazaar and Swarovski Elements. Look out for the video coming this fall.

One of the most celebrated albums of the band’s storied three-decade career, the nine-track digital-only version of ALL YOU NEED IS NOW hit #1 on the iTunes Albums Charts in 15 countries before the release of the 14-track LP earlier this year. Around the album’s release, Duran Duran – who have sold more than 80 million albums throughout their career – graced the cover of Paper Magazine and were all over America’s television screens with performances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Ellen DeGeneres Show (twice!), Jimmy Kimmel Live and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. They also played a very special one-night-only show for the American Express: Unstaged series, streamed live and directed by iconic filmmaker David Lynch. But there’s nothing quite like experiencing a Duran Duran show for yourself, so now’s the time to grab your tickets and enjoy!
