Duran Duran have been international pop icons for over 30 years, penning such instantly recognizable ’80s hits as “Rio” and “Hungry Like a Wolf.” Their concerts are exciting, high-energy affairs where fans can come as they are and rock out to songs that speak to them. Performances are often held in large venues where fans can sit enjoy the ambiance while singing along with the band. Ticket holders were thrilled in 2011 when original band members reunited to cut the band’s newest album, All You Need Is Now. Even better, in 2012, Duran Duran released a live recording of its Diamond in the Mind tour, so fans could relive the excitement of seeing the band in person.
Duran Duran’s career began in 1978, and the band quickly rose to top-10 status several times over in the early 1980s, in part thanks to being one of the first bands to make music videos for broadcast on MTV. Shortly after creating a controversy with their “Girls on Film” video, which was considered too risqué at the time, Duran Duran decided to test the American market. They proved to be equally popular abroad and at home, and a pop sensation was born. Throughout the ’80s and ’90s, the band continued to produce new hits. They are best known for “Hungry Like a Wolf,” “Rio” and other songs with strong beats and distinctive lyrics. Since Duran Duran has endured for so many years, going to a concert can be a bonding experience for parents and children, who can both enjoy the band’s distinctive sound.
