Duran Duran Re-scheduled Dates For BIC
Following the recent postponement of Duran Duran's UK 'ALL YOU NEED IS NOW' arena tour, the band members have been able to reschedule all concert dates for December.
They were postponed due to singer Simon Le Bon's vocal problems but now all dates have been re-booked to coincide with the pre-Christmas festivities in the UK. The eleven rescheduled dates (all of which will remain in their original venues) will mark the band's first full UK arena tour in seven years, for which they are planning a totally new and spectacular production.

Bassist John Taylor said:
"Given the fact that we'd missed the dates in May, we wanted to do something really special for the fans pre-Christmas. It's taken us a minute to clear dates in all of these venues, as this is obviously an incredibly busy time of year, but finally we've been able to make it work and cannot wait to get there!"
