Duran Duran’s ‘RED CARPET MASSACRE’ Set to Take London by Storm

Band make history with brand new show at London’s Odeon Leicester Square Monday December 3, 2007

In an unprecedented move, British superstars, Duran Duran, have today confirmed that they will perform in London on December 3 at the Odeon Leicester Square, in celebration of the launch of their upcoming album, ‘RED CARPET MASSACRE’, which will be released November 19 on RCA Records.

Marking the first time ever that any band has played at this historic 1600 capacity venue, Duran Duran have spent the past month developing a completely new stage show for the occasion, with magnificent production values created specially for this unique, landmark location.

Performing for well over two hours on December 3, band members Simon LeBon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor and Roger Taylor will take the audience on a musical journey, presenting their new record in its entirety, together with many of the band’s classic hits from the past 29 years and a special electro set that will delight their loyal army of fans. This concert will be the band’s first UK date in support of their exciting new release, which they have worked on over the past year with Justin Timberlake and top producers Timbaland and Nate ‘Danja’ Hills. The December 3 show will follow hot on the heels of a record-breaking two-week run on Broadway which starts next week (November 1) and ends on the November 13.

With tickets priced at £100, £75 and £60 (plus applicable service charges), Duran Duran Fan Community members will be able to purchase both tickets and exclusive VIP packages in advance of the general public from Tuesday October 30 at 1 pm GMT. For full details of this pre-sale visit Duranduranmusic . All remaining tickets will be available to the general public from Friday November 2 at 9 am GMT through Ticketmaster: Tel: 0871 230 4422 or AEGLive .

Duran Duran’s ‘RED CARPET MASSACRE’ marks an all time creative high in the band’s illustrious career. As Nylon Magazine described it in their most recent issue “it’s like a stroke of lightning captured on record… it’s a triumph, a marvel, and a hell of a lot of fun. Duran Duran have got their sexy back.”

Remarking on their upcoming London date, singer Simon LeBon said “We have made an album that we are all really proud of and we wanted to present it in a very unique way. Staging a show at the Odeon in Leicester Square is something that we’ve often talked about over the years – but the time has never seemed right until now. We started work on ‘RED CARPET MASSACRE’ in New York, in September of last year with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland. This has been one of the most enjoyable recording experiences of our career – and now we can’t wait to present it to the fans.“

Bassist John Taylor added: “We agreed we wanted to do something very different and special in the UK while we were still making the record and have been planning how we’re going to stage it for the past few months. Nick and I have been particularly engaged in this and are really excited about the production. The Odeon in Leicester Square just feels like the perfect place to launch this album.”

“The Odeon is world-renowned as a premiere venue – and over the years we’ve all seen exciting red carpet events here. We couldn’t have wished for a better place for our first UK show – and with leopard skin-covered seats it’s just perfect for us!” added keyboard player Nick Rhodes. “I don’t believe there is another band out there who has played here – and knowing that our fans travel to see our shows from all over the world we wanted to start out with something really spectacular.”

Rehearsals for this concert and the band’s two week run on Broadway that precedes it started in London at the beginning of October, and as drummer Roger Taylor noted: “We rehearsed for the whole of October because we are adding so much in the way of new material to the set. Usually when we go out we only introduce three or four new songs into the show but this time we’re playing everything off the new record. Personally, I can’t wait to play these songs live.”

Tickets will be available from Tuesday October 30 at 1 pm GMT to Duran Duran Fan Community Members, priced £100, £75 and £60 (plus applicable service fees). Tickets available through www.duranduranmusic.com.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday November 2 (same prices as above) through Ticketmaster. Tel: 0871 230 4422 or www.aeglive.co.uk.

Simon Le Bon, he's a beautiful thing!
