Duran Duran

Duran Duran, who released the guest-filled new album Paper Gods earlier this year, have announced an extensive 2016 North American tour. Joining them will be Chic featuring Nile Rodgers which, given that Rodgers produced many of DD's biggest hits, makes for an exciting pairing.

Dates include a stop at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on April 12. Tickets for the Barclays show go on sale Saturday (12/12) at 10 AM, with a fanclub presale starting Wednesday (12/9) at 10 AM, a CitiCard presale on Thursday (12/10) at 10 AM, an a Live Nation presale starting Friday (12/11) at 10 AM.

Duran Duran played Nile Rodgers' FOLD Fest earlier this year. All dates are listed below...
