Duran Duran will play their hits from the last three decades at their Broadway debut tonight at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. The show, entitled Duran Duran: Red Carpet Massacre, celebrates the group’s upcoming CD, Red Carpet Massacre, which will be released on Nov. 13.
About the group’s Broadway bow, singer Simon LeBon said in a previous statement, “We have made an album that we are all really proud of and we wanted to present it in a very unique way. Staging a run on Broadway is something that we’ve often talked about over the years – but the time has never seemed right until now. We started work on ‘Red Carpet Massacre’ in New York – in September of last year – so it feels fitting to be launching it here – just down the road from the studio where we did those first sessions with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland.”
