Style never goes out fashion must have been the thought of Duran Duran when they decided to reunite their original line-up for another album and extensive world tour. On Friday night, the band played a sold-out Tabernacle in Atlanta in front of a roaring crowd.
Fans had a good reason to cheer. This Duran Duran reunion tour marks the first time in eighteen years that singer Simon LeBon, drummer Roger Taylor, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, bassist John Taylor and guitarist Andy Taylor have played together.
The ‘80s supergroup raised the bar for many other pop bands with their glamorous mix of synthetic pop-rock, chic fashion and exotic music videos. It is no wonder that there is plenty of pressure on these original fab five to prove fans they still have their sizzle more than 20 years after they topped the charts.
