  • Duran Duran is pleased to be participating in War Child and O2’s “Passport Back To The Bars"
    Duran Duran is pleased to be participating in War Child and O2’s “Passport Back To The Bars", a week of one-off events offering incredible access to big name acts in the most intimate music venues – supporting War Child to bring hope and safety back to children in war zones, after an unprecedented year of violence.

    Produced by War Child, O2 and the Music Managers Forum, the Passport shows are a part of BRIT Awards Week 2015. These will be the smallest gigs making the biggest difference.

    Artists performing will include special shows from Duran Duran, Bastille and Ride (Mark Gardener and Andy Bell acoustic show) - the line up, dates, venues and details on how to win tickets will be announced in early January. To register for information visit www.warchild.org.uk/passport.

    The venues in London and Manchester will be tiny - around 300 capacity and smaller – and fans will get the chance to win tickets by donating to War Child.

    This marks ten years since War Child’s original Passport Back To The Bars shows for victims of the Iraq war, when acts included The Cure, David Gray, Elbow, Pet Shop Boys, Supergrass and Amy Winehouse.

    All the money raised will support War Child’s vital work saving children from the brutal effects of war in areas including Syria, Iraq and Gaza. These stripped back, intimate shows will have a life-changing impact for thousands of vulnerable children.

    Duran Duran’s John Taylor says: “Thousands of children are innocent victims in the war zones of adult conflict around the world. They are often being denied education and other basic human rights. We are looking forward to performing an exclusive event in London this coming February, in support of War Child and the important work they do in the regions where these children are suffering.

    This past year we have spent most of our time in the studio working on new songs, so we are very much looking forward to getting back onto a London stage for this special appearance.”

    Ben Knowles, War Child’s Director of Music says: “2014 saw more people displaced by war than any year since World War 2. It is a global emergency. These child refugees have no passports. They don’t get to choose where war sends them. The support of these bands and the generosity of music fans can send them hope.”

    John Taylor New Year's Mix Tape!
    "Paul from Manimal asked me if I would do another year-end Soundcloud playlist, like we did last year. I wasn’t sure I wanted to, as I’ve been so caught up in mixing the new Duran Duran album I almost didn’t want to give serious head space to any other music but ours. However .. music is so damn important to me - sometimes I think it’s the very blood that keeps my heart pumping - I realized I did want to give a shout out to some of the beats and bars that have gotten me through the four seasons of 2014. I lack the cojones to D.J., but if I was to be invited to spin a few sounds at your New Year's party, this is the kind of mix-up you could expect to hear. Enjoy!" -- John Taylor, December 31, 2014

    War Child and O2 are proud to announce the incredible full line-up, dates and venues for Passport Back To The Bars, a week of one-off events offering incredible access to some of the biggest names in music in the most intimate venues – supporting War Child after an unprecedented year of violence for children in war zones.

    Artists performing special shows include: Duran Duran, Elbow, Bastille, The Vaccines, You Me At Six and Ride (Mark Gardener and Andy Bell acoustic show).

    Produced by War Child, O2, the Music Managers Forum and part of BRITs Week 2015, these will be the smallest gigs making the biggest difference.

    All the money raised will support War Child’s vital work saving children from the brutal effects of war including Syria, Iraq and Gaza. These stripped back, intimate shows for a few hundred fans will have a life-changing impact for thousands of vulnerable children.

    Ben Knowles, War Child's Director of Music, says: "Many people in music spoke to War Child about wanting to do something in response to the crisis for children in Iraq, Syria, Gaza and other places. This response from so many great acts, doing something unique to encourage fans to support War Child is incredible. These will be the smallest gigs that can make the biggest difference. We thank all the acts, O2, MMF and The BRITs for all their support."
