Saying this is the last time they’ll play the U.S. before going back into the recording studio, Duran Duran plots a stateside run beginning Aug. 8 in California.
Touring in support of their 2010 album All You Need Is Now, Duran Duran has a concert disc coming out this summer. To be available on DVD and Blu-ray as well as CD audio, “A Diamond In The Mind” features the band performing at England’s Manchester Evening News Arena during the band’s 11-date U.K. run in December 2011. Landing in stores in July on Eagle Rock, “A Diamond In The Mind” will also be released in a deluxe version containing all three formats plus a 20-page booklet.
Meanwhile, the lads have one last U.S. tour before starting on the band’s next album.
