British rock band Duran Duran are set to perform in Leeds this week as part of their Future Past UK and Ireland tour. The new wave group which formed in 1978 will take to the stage at Leeds First Direct Arena alongside their support acts Jake Shears and LIA LIA.

Duran Duran celebrated a landmark year in 2022 as they were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame as well as performing at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace.

Meanwhile, in 2021 they released their new studio album FUTURE PAST which was hailed their best by critics and fans, four decades into their rich and storied career.

When the tour was announced Duran Duran’s lead vocalist Simon Le Bon said: “2022 has been an extraordinary year for Duran Duran - mainly down to the incredible fans we have around the world. Next Spring we will be back on home soil once again to continue the party.

“It’s remarkable to me that as a band, we are still hitting new milestones, still able to introduce the sound of DD to new generations of music lovers. We are truly grateful that we get to do what we do on a daily basis, and that we still love our job as much as we did when we started out some four decades ago."
