Duran Duran to Make Broadway Debut Tonight

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.

Playbill reports:

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.”
