  • David Lynch-Directed Duran Duran Concert Film Sees Nationwide Release
    DAVID LYNCH-DIRECTED DURAN DURAN CONCERT FILM SEES NATIONWIDE RELEASE: ONE NIGHT ONLY ON SEPTEMBER 10th

    Screenvision and Phase 4 Films Bring ‘Duran Duran Unstaged’ to More Than 300 Movie Theatres Nationwide


    Los Angeles, CA – August 13, 2014 – The iconic British rock band Duran Duran will take over North American movie theaters on Wednesday, September 10th for a one-night-only showing of the film Duran Duran: Unstaged. This movie showcases the band’s concert at the Mayan Theatre in Los Angeles, which was part of the American Express Unstaged concert series that celebrated the band’s All You Need Is Now album and world tour. Screenvision in alliance with Phase 4 Films will screen the film in over 300 locations.

    The film was directed by award-winning filmmaker David Lynch (The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, and Mulholland Drive) as part of the American Express Unstaged. Known for his unique cinematic style that masterfully blends extraordinary imagery and sound design, Lynch has captured the band’s performance in a ground-breaking, creative way that will provide fans with a visually stunning in-theater viewing experience. When it was originally filmed, the director layered images that he had created in advance of the show (live action, animation, special effects, etc.) on top of the band’s performance footage as it was being filmed live. The technique, created an ocular event unlike anything ever seen before. Special guests include Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance), Beth Ditto (Gossip), Kelis and long-time collaborator, Mark Ronson.

    CLICK HERE to watch the newly-imagined trailer for the film, recently created by David Lynch. After the live performance, David Lynch went back into the studio to recreate the magic that occurred during the concert and recut the film - watching back the performance footage while he ‘live switched’ the show for a second time, reworking the overlay footage to create a new director’s cut. Duran Duran also remixed the audio for this upcoming theatrical release.

    Tickets will go on sale on Friday, August 15th. CLICK HERE for purchase information. This will undoubtedly be a feast for the eyes and ears on the big screen that you won’t want to miss.

    The film features all four original members of Duran Duran: Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor and Roger Taylor. Upon release, tickets for Duran Duran’s performance at the Mayan Theatre sold out in less than five minutes.

    “We are all very proud to have worked in partnership with the legendary David Lynch on this project. It was a tremendously rewarding and exhilarating experience,” said Simon Le Bon. “I was particularly delighted by the sausage barbecue sequence during the song Come Undone - something I would never have expected but it works superbly!"

    “David is a visionary artist, his work is always surprising and beautifully strange - so it was a surreal dream collaboration for us to work with him and to become the subjects of one of his films,” said Nick Rhodes. “When we first discussed the notion of working together, we bonded over a shared desire to create a truly unique live film. I felt confident we could rely upon David to conjure up something stylish, experimental, handmade and innovative. He surpassed all of our wildest expectations.”

    Duran Duran is one of the most ground-breaking British bands of the last three decades. With over 100 million records sold, 30 UK Top 20 hits, 18 American hit singles, and six prestigious ‘Lifetime Achievement Awards’ from MTVVMAs, the BRITS, the IVOR NOVELLOS, Q Magazine, the Spanish Ondas, and GQ Magazine, Duran Duran has shown that throughout the years, they continue to thrill with the same venerable vigor and enthusiasm of their earliest records, delivering to fans the songs they remember and new ones to love with the creative momentum to propel them into the next decade and beyond.

    Duran Duran Appreciation Day 2014
    Today, here in London, we are all together in a recording studio with Nile Rodgers and Mark Ronson, working on some new songs for our forthcoming album. The excitement in the room is palpable. We are preparing to unleash our new life form in spring next year.

    It has been a little while since we last toured, around two years ago, but we thought we would share this memento with you, from July 6th 2012, when we played a show in Thessaloniki, Greece. That evening was the 40th anniversary of David Bowie’s first performance of "Starman" on the UK TV show, "Top of the Pops." Everyone in the band remembers seeing this show, and we have all greatly appreciated David Bowie as an artist ever since. So, a couple of hours before going on stage, we decided on an impulse to learn "Starman" and play it in the set as our own celebration. It is the only time we ever performed that song, here it is…

    Happy Duran Duran Appreciation Day.

    See you all soon,

    Simon, Nick, Roger & John

    From the LA based indie label that brought you Bat for Lashes, Warpaint and the 2010's Bowie tribute (which featured Duran Duran's stellar cover of "Boys Keep Swinging" along with Carla Bruni, Edward Sharpe, and others) comes the long promised Duran Duran tribute record, appropriately titled Making Patterns Rhyme.

    Manimal has strategically chosen cutting-edge indie artists to dig deep into the vaults of the Duran catalog, selecting album cuts and B-Sides rather than the worldwide smash hits that Duran Duran is known for. As label founder Paul Beahan articulated in his manifesto to those artists invited to participate in this project:

    "Duran Duran started out as a gang of art-school kids who were in the thick of the UK post-punk scene. The only difference between Duran Duran and bands like The Cure or Wire is that Duran saw the artistic edge in disco as well as early British punk and art-rock and created a blend of their own mainstream-friendly choruses, dance beats and rhythms. Simon's lyrics in my opinion are right up there with such revered artists as Gang Of Four, The Fall and The Clash. Their incredible music was much overshadowed by massive early stardom. Duran to me will always be the post-punk band that introduced Americans to British new wave and made it a mainstream brand of music in the 1980s."

    All proceeds from the release will go to Amnesty International.
