After kicking off 2023 with a New Year’s Eve performance in Times Square, Duran Duran will keep the live vibes going this spring when they embark on a North American tour in support of their latest LP Future Past.
Following a headlining gig at Napa Valley, California’s Bottlerock Festival, the trek kicks off May 28 in San Jose, California and slowly winds its way across the U.S. before concluding Sept. 19 in Toronto. Like the 2022 leg, Nile Rodgers and Chic serve as special guest throughout the tour, as well as Bastille.
“It’s remarkable to me that as a band, we are still hitting new milestones, and introducing the sound of DD to new generations of music lovers,” frontman Simon Le Bon said in a statement. “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.”

The Future Past Tour marks Duran Duran’s first trek since they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
“Music is itself an honor, something that all the artists being inducted tonight’s and previously have dedicated our lives to in order to achieve,” Le Bon said in his acceptance speech.
“In times that seem increasingly divisive, music is something which can overcome such issues as race, politics, and gender. Music brings people together. Over 40 years I’ve been working, I’ve come to believe that the essence of our job is this: We get to make people feel better about themselves. This an industry that I am proud to be a part of. Thank you.”
