Yup, I’ve been MIA for an entire week.  Sometimes the blog takes a back seat to everyday life (presentations, work, family stuff etc.).  You might have also heard the news that Duran Duran frenzy has begun!  Take a look at how awesome the boys are looking these days!  Nobody can work white skinny jeans like the newly svelte SLB, amirite?

By now you might have heard that the band have not only released their new single, “Pressure Off” (which you can hear via this Rolling Stone write up) with Nile Rodgers and Janelle Monae.  It’s super funky and if you’re a fan of the Notorious album, you will definitely love this single.

Because in Duranworld, it’s always hurry up, wait and then scramble, the band decided to torture fans by releasing the name of the new album (Paper Gods) and a few US tour stops at about the same time!  Tickets went on presale last week and today and I’m thrilled to say that I’ll be going to a few West Coast shows (including the iconic Hollywood Bowl!).

Duran Duran, Paper Gods


Want to know what it’s like to feel like a teenager again when you’re 45?  

Try buying presale tickets to your favorite band’s show(s) and you’ll be right back there again, complete with stomach aches, nerves and anticipation.  It was ridiculous and wonderful all at the same time!

Looking forward to more Duran singles dropping soon (I hope) and some fabulous shows this Fall!  In the meantime, check out this clip of “Election Day” from the Sonar Festival (6/20/15).


Back to the regularly scheduled blogging tomorrow! 

Did you get tickets for this Duran Duran mini tour or are you holding out for a future full fledged tour (say that 10 times fast)?
