Duran Duran gigs rescheduled

DURAN Duran’s cancelled Sheffield and Nottingham gigs have now been rearranged for December.

The original All You Need Is Now UK tour was called off last month due to singer Simon Le Bon’s vocal problem.

Now booked to coincide with the pre-Christmas festivitie, the 11 rescheduled dates will mark the band’s first full UK arena tour in seven years, for which they are planning a totally new and spectacular production.

Tickets for the original shows will be valid for the new dates at Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena on December 6 and Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena on December 14.

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!”
