Shamir

Duran Duran and Chic feat. Nile Rodgers already announced a tour together, and now that tour has additional support from another great (and much younger) artist. Shamir, who released his debut album Ratchet on XL last year and is no doubt a Duran Duran fan (and probably a Chic fan too), will open select dates.

The run with Shamir includes the Brooklyn show on April 12 at Barclays Center. Tickets for that show are still available.

In honor of the tour, Shamir recorded an acoustic cover of Duran Duran's "Hungry Like The Wolf." Listen to that, and check out all dates, below...
