Duran Duran Share Dates for Paper Gods Tour With CHIC
UPDATE (1/25): Duran Duran have added more shows — and they’re bringing Shamir! See the updated dates below.
Duran Duran have announced a tour across North America in 2016 in support of their recent album Paper Gods.
The group will be joined by ’70s disco band CHIC, whose lead guitarist and co-founder Nile Rodgers acted as a producer on Paper Gods — Duran Duran’s highest charting album in 22 years — and has collaborated extensively with the band in the past.
The Paper Gods Tour will be broken up into two parts, with the first leg beginning on March 28 in Durham, NC, and ending on April 24 in New Orleans. The second leg of the tour starts on July 6 in Nashville and finishes on August 3 in Glendale, AZ.
Fans who buy a ticket to the show will also receive an email 24-48 hours after their purchase containing instructions on how to redeem a standard physical copy of Paper Gods.
A pre-sale will be available to members of the Duran Duran Fan Community beginning tomorrow (December 9) at 10AM local time through the band’s official website. Citi cardmembers will also have their own pre-sale, beginning on Thursday (December 10) at 10AM local time. And for those of you who have the Live Nation mobile app, a password-free pre-sale will begin on December 11 at 10AM for Ticketmaster-ticketed venues.
Finally, the general public will have access to tickets beginning on December 12 via Live Nation.
