Are you interested in reading all about the latest Duran Duran news from the last week (3/8/15 to 3/15/15)? If so, read on. Please note that I summarize official news (as opposed to unconfirmed rumors).
As mentioned in last week’s summary, Simon was off to India to participate in the Cartier Travel in Style event. Well, pictures and videos of the event have begun to surface, including this picture posted on Duran’s Facebook:
Nick was also seen out in public this past week. He attended the Savage Beauty VIP party. Here is a picture that was posted on Duran Duran Argentina’s Facebook page:
Spandau Ballet, one of Duran’s peers from the early 80s in England, is on tour. Like many bands and artists, they have a tour program that can be purchased by fans in attendance. Well, guess who wrote the foreword? No, it wasn’t Tony Hadley or Martin Kemp. It was John Taylor! We all know that John is a very good writer so I’m sure that this foreword is quality! If that wasn’t enough, Spandau also has a film out entitled “Soul Boys of the Western World.” Guess which band is featured on that soundtrack? That’s right. Duran’s Hungry Like the Wolf is on the soundtrack along with other fabulous artists like David Bowie and Kraftwerk. That soundtrack is coming out this week!
Did you hear that the artist, Kiesza, will be collaborating with Duran Duran on their upcoming album? DDHQ confirmed that this week. I covered reactions to this news on the blog post here.
