Duran Duran (Rescheduled from Wednesday 18th May 2011)


  • Date: Saturday 17th December 2011
  • Doors Open: 7.30pm
  • Pricing: £30, £40 & £55


Following the recent postponement of Duran Duran's UK 'ALL YOU NEED IS NOW' arena tour, originally scheduled to kick off Wednesday 18th May 2011 in Newcastle at the Metro Radio Arena, due to singer Simon Le Bon's vocal problems, the band members are delighted to announce today that they have been able to reschedule all eleven concert dates for December, making these special shows an even bigger celebration of the band's new album and their thirty year history.

The rescheduled performance at the Metro Radio Arena has been confirmed as Saturday 17th December 2011 with all previously purchased tickets valid for this new date. Now booked to coincide with the pre-Christmas festivities in the UK, the eleven rescheduled dates (all of which will remain in their original venues) will mark the band's first full UK arena tour in seven years, for which they are planning a totally new and spectacular production. Bassist John Taylor said today "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!"

Tickets costing from £30 are still available to purchase online, from the booking hotline number 0844 493 6666, and in person at the Metro Radio Arena Box Office.
