Multi-platinum superstars Duran Duran have announced their 2016 North American “Paper Gods” Tour which includes a stopover at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre. It is promising to be one of the most eagerly anticipated tours of 2016.
Formed in 1978 in Birmingham, England, Duran Duran’s reputation was built through music videos, which accentuated their fashion-model looks and glamorous sense of style. When “Plant Earth”, their first single, quickly rose to #12 after its’ release in the spring of 1981, Duran Duran became the leaders of the new Romantic Movement and media sensations in the British music and mainstream press.
“Girls on Film” became the group’s first Top Ten hit setting the stage for the release of its eponymous debut album. “Duran Duran” reached #3 upon its release and stayed in the charts for 118 weeks. The band quickly followed the album with “Rio” in the spring of 1982. “Rio”entered the charts at #2, and its’ singles, “Hungry Like the Wolf” and “Save a Prayer”, became Top Ten hits which solidified the band members’ status as superstars.
