Duran Duran to play Atlanta this summer

The musicians behind “Save a Prayer,” “The Reflex,” “Rio,” and “Hungry Life the Wolf” are headed to Atlanta.

Duran Duran announced a 26-date North American arena tour for 2023. The Future Past Tour begins on May 28 in San Jose, CA and will make a stop in Atlanta at State Farm Arena on June 15.

Speaking about the upcoming dates, Simon Le Bon reveals, “It’s remarkable to me that as a band, we are still hitting new milestones, and introducing the sound of DD to new generations of music lovers. We are truly grateful that we get to do what we do on a daily basis, and that we still love our job as much as we did when we started out some four decades ago.”

2022 served as something of a landmark year for Duran Duran, having just been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, a career peak that followed a summer live season of epic proportions - headlining London’s Hyde Park in front of 60,000 people, performing at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace and closing the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in their home town of Birmingham, not to mention a headline tour across North America which included sold-out shows at New York City’s Madison Square Garden and three nights at the Hollywood Bowl.

The cinematic release of their new docu-concert film, ‘A Hollywood High’ followed, before the band capped off the year with a spectacular performance in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, counting fans down into 2023 in front of a live audience of over 1 million people on the streets of Manhattan. All this comes after the huge success of new studio album Future Past, hailed as Duran Duran at their best by critics and fans alike, four decades into their rich and storied career.

Ticket pre-sales begin on Feb. 13 with sales to the general public starting on Feb. 16.
