Duran Duran announce UK tour 2023 including Birmingham Utilita Arena show: how to get tickets, presale details

Duran Duran will be touring the UK in 2023, with a date in Birmingham pencilled in.

Duran Duran have announced that they will be playing several shows in the UK next year including one in their hometown here in Birmingham. They will be playing live at the Utilita Arena on Friday, May 5, 2023.

As well as Birmingham, the tour will visit Manchester, Leeds, London and Dublin. They are perhaps best known for their 1985 hit, A View To A Kill, which featured as the title track for the James Bond film of the same name.

The current Duran Duran lineup consists of Simon Le Bon, John Taylor, Nick Rhodes and Roger Taylor. Sadly, guitarist Andy Taylor will not be joining Duran Duran on the tour, as it was revealed earlier this month that he has been diagnosed with stage four prostate cancer.

Simon Le Bon said: “2022 has been an extraordinary year for Duran Duran - mainly down to the incredible fans we have around the world. In July we celebrated our years together at Hyde Park as part of the British Summer Time Festival.

“Next Spring we will be back on home soil once again to continue the party.

“It’s remarkable to me that as a band, we are still hitting new milestones, still able to introduce the sound of DD to new generations of music lovers.

“We are truly grateful that we get to do what we do on a daily basis, and that we still love our job as much as we did when we started out some four decades ago."
