Duran Duran visit Rome

One of the biggest bands of the 80’s and a driving force in the MTV fueled “Second British Invasion” of America, Duran Duran have made a rather large splash in the music industry. While they were generally considered part of the New Romantic scene along with bands such as Spandau Ballet when they first emerged, they later shed this image. The band worked with fashion designers to build a sharp and elegant image that earned them the nickname “the prettiest boys in rock”.imagesCAWVYKGH1

The group was formed by Nick Rhodes, John Taylor and Stephen Duffy, with the later addition of Roger Taylor and, after numerous personnel changes, Andy Taylor and Simon Le Bon. Their controversial videos, which included partial nudity and suggestions of sexuality, became popular in the early 1980s on the then-new music video channel MTV. Duran Duran were among the first bands to have their videos shot by professional directors with 35 mm film movie cameras, which gave their videos a much more polished look. In 1984, the band were early innovators with video technology in their live stadium shows.

This summer Duran Duran come to Rome, to Foro Italico, Piazza Lauro De Bosis. You can catch a concert on the 18th of July at 20:00, make sure to book those tickets soon and remember to contact Hotel Des Artistes to get a great deal on one of our rooms.
