  • Duran Duran to play Austin!
    We are happy to announce that DURAN DURAN will perform during the Formula 1 Grand Prix Weekend Fan Fest in Austin, Texas at ACL Live at The Moody Theater. The band will play to an intimate audience of 2,400 in a special engagement Saturday, November 1, 2014. Concert-goers will be treated to a one-of-a-kind VIP experience at ACL Live, Austin's premiere live music venue.

    DD VIP community members will have access to tickets three days before the general public.

    There are two tickets available (please note that these are the same prices the general public will pay):

    1) Ultimate Floor Experience Ticket - $575 each
    Treat yourself to a one-of-a-kind VIP experience! An Ultimate Floor Experience Ticket provides you with premium open bars, passed hors d'oeuvres, and a spectacular stylized space as only ACL Live can deliver. This level is "dancing room only" and also gives you access to the exclusive after-party on the Music Porch after the concert

    2) Balcony Ticket - $325 each
    A Balcony Ticket provides you with legendary views of the stage in theater-style seating, access to the Jack & Jim gallery featuring the iconic photography of Jim Marshall, and access to the exclusive after-party on the Music Porch.

    Our Duran Duran VIP fan community pre-sale will begin at 10am CST on Tuesday, September 2nd. Members should log in to www.duranduranmusic.com and visit the PRESALE link at the top of the page in order to buy tickets. We recommend that you register with our ticketing partner Crowdsurge as soon as possible in order to be prepared for the pre-sale.

    This is a great opportunity to see one of the only DD shows of the year in what Pollstar called the Best New Major Concert Venue. Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater (ACL Live) is a state-of-the-art, 2,750-person capacity live music venue that hosts approximately 100 concerts a year. It serves as the new home for the taping of the acclaimed KLRU-TV produced PBS series, Austin City Limits, the longest running music series in American television history. ACL Live is nestled next to the W Austin Hotel & Residences, which are both located within Block 21, the first mixed-occupancy building of its type in the world to be LEED certified. LEED is a mark of excellence developed by the U.S. Green Building Council acknowledging measurable performance attributes that benefit human and environmental health. ACL Live is the premier destination in Austin for live performances as well as numerous special and private events.

    We hope to see you at the show!

    Monterey Winners on the Duran Duran Performance for the new Mazda Miata
    We asked the VIP Fan Community Winners who got the chance to see Duran Duran live in Monterey, CA for the Mazda Miata party if they'd let us know how the event was. After reading these "reports," we have to admit, we were a little jealous we weren't there! DD VIP

    I just wanted to thank DDM for the opportunity to see Duran Duran at the Mazda private event. The Mazda folks definitely know how to put on a swanky event! From the 3 full bars to the abundance of couches and tables and delicious food, it made for quite the VIP experience!

    I have to say, it was great to see Duran Duran perform live again! They looked and sounded amazing. I'm certain they picked up quite a few new fans: My friend whom I brought as a guest is one of them! She was only somewhat familiar with the band but after the show she announced that she was officially a "Duranie", couldn't believe how great they sounded (and looked) and was asking when their next tour was. Ha! Diane B. (hulagirl)

    Thank you DD VIP for sending me and my guest to Duran Duran's private performance at the Mazda MX-5 Turns 25 Celebration! This was a very exclusive corporate party that was strictly for invites only. There was no way me or any fans could've attended this private performance without your help! After enjoying incredible complimentary food and drinks, we found ourselves being escorted into the performance area and positioned in the front row…only a few feet from Simon, John, Nick and Roger! This is the closest I've ever seen the band perform! I couldn't have done this without being a part of the DD VIP Community…..THANKS AGAIN DD VIP for this once in a lifetime experience!!!! Steven L.

    ****
    Thanks so much - it was a wonderful event and a great treat to be able to
    go. I truly had a blast!

    We did a lot of guessing as we boarded the shuttle bus, but it turned out the party was in a hanger at a municipal airport in the Monterey area. It was a lovely evening and we enjoyed quite a spread of food and drinks as we gathered and caught up with fellow winners and other Duran friends. Eventually we were allowed into the hanger and we found places up front and we waited for the show to begin. After the big reveal, the guys finally came onstage. They were in great form and the crowd was very appreciative as they rocked through the set. We danced up a storm and hopefully didn't bother too many Mazda salesmen with our craziness! As usual, it was sad when it came to an end, but seeing the band live is always an amazing experience and it will help to ease the wait until the tour that's rumored for next year. It was a remarkable evening! Tracey
