Duran Duran Tribute Band announce the Rio Theatre Show

Duran Duran Experience

DURAN2, the UK's premier tribute to Duran Duran, are proud to announce their Rio Theatre Show based on the multi-platinum and award winning Rio album.

In what is believed to be a first, the two-hour spectacular show will see DURAN2 perform the entire Rio album from beginning to end, followed by a second set featuring the rest of the band's hits, including A View To A Kill, Notorious, Ordinary World, Wild Boys and Girls On Film.

Originally released in May 1982, Rio was the band's second studio album, reaching #2 in the UK and #1 in Australia. Subsequently re-released in America in November 1982 it quickly reached double platinum status, peaking at #6 on the Billboard 200 album chart and remaining in the charts for 129 weeks.

Listed in Q magazine's "100 Greatest British Albums" and NME's "100 Greatest Albums Of All Time", Rio was also voted #3 in BBC Radio 2's Top 100 Favourite Albums of all time.

The album spawned numerous hit singles, including My Own Way, Hungry Like The Wolf, Save A Prayer, The Chauffeur and, of course, Rio - the video which set the standard for music videos, even to this day.

Three decades later, John Taylor still held the album in high regard. "The writing on Rio is fantastic, all out. Essential Duran Duran," he recalled in his 2012 memoir, In the Pleasure Groove. He also had high praise for the band's musicianship. "Every one of us is performing ... at the absolute peak of our talents," he wrote. "There is no showboating. Every part is thoughtful, considered, part of a greater whole."
