Act Profile

The Duran Duran Tribute

With over 100 million record sales, 14 UK Top 10 singles, 21 Billboard Hot 100 singles and Lifetime Achievement Awards from MTV and Q Magazine, Duran Duran are undoubtedly one of the most successful acts of the last thirty years. The Duran Duran Tribute Band, is your chance to relive one of the greatest and enduring bands of pop history.

Featuring a professional live five-piece band, every attention has been made to ensure this is the most authentic sounding experience possible to Duran Duran, uniquely recreate the energy and unique sound of the original classic band and line-up. With appearances at The Isle Of Wight Festival, V-Dub Island Festival, Southsea Bandstand, Birmingham Botanical Gardens Bandstand, Fontwell Park Racecourse and European theatres.

Not only can you expect a 100 minute show packed with instantly recognisable classics such as Hungry Like The Wolf, Rio, Save A Prayer, Girls On Film, Ordinary World, Wild Boys and Planet Earth but also other gems such as My Own Way and The Chauffeur.

Our live sound and image faithfully recreates the worldwide phenomenon of the original and classic line-up featuring Simon le Bon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor, Andy Taylor and Roger Taylor. With superior sound and light systems, each show can be customised to each client’s needs, all supported by a professional and experienced musicians whose clients include Rewind Festival, Virgin Atlantic, Abbey Road Studios, Sega, T-Mobile and Orange guaranteeing your show is one you will never forget.

We are also the first and only Duran Duran tribute band in the country to provide an exclusive video show that's synchronised to their music. The band can supply either a VGA or HDMI signal to the venue's in-house display system to truly bring the full experience to the audience. Alternatively, display facilities can be provided by the band for an additional fee.

Variety of line-ups

Offering a variety of packages and line-ups as standard, from the original five-piece band to a six or seven-piece band featuring a saxophone player and a backing vocalist.

We appreciate not every venue has the physical capacity or budget to accommodate a five-piece band and therefore can also offer a 4-piece line up where the keyboard sounds of Nick Rhodes have been faithfully recreated and recorded by DURAN2's very own "Nicola Rhodes" so that they can now be played back with the rest of the live band. The end result is a professional show which sounds every bit as good as the traditional five piece alternative.

The length of the show can also be customised to each client's requirements, with anywhere between one and two hours being ideal.

Perfect entertainment for corporate events, conferences and staff events, weddings, hotels, nightclubs, festivals, universities and student unions, as well as birthdays and private parties throughout the United Kingdom and Europe.

1) Ladies Day for Fontwell Park Racecourse. It's easy for a band to hype themselves up but this what Simon Williams, Executive Director for Fontwell Park Racecourse:

“There has never been so many people in our Premier Concourse dancing at the same time. These guys kept everyone on their feet after races and their professionalism was clear from the start. One of the best tribute acts we have had at Fontwell Racecourse with a true authentic tone. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.”

Simon Williams, Executive Director, Fontwell Park Racecourse


2) Over 300 people squeezed into The Tunnels at Bristol to experience a hit-packed show from The Duran Duran Tribute Show.

"Well can I say?!?!? Apart from being really nice and affable people they are a very polished tight band re-creating the sound that made Duran Duran the force that they were back in the day. The night went down a treat kicking off with Planet Earth then into Hungry Like the Wolf and had the crowd clapping and singing from the off.

"The 2nd half was even better and songs like Girls on Film and The Reflex had the crowd calling for more they finished off with Rio as the encore and all 300 people in the room were chanting and singing!

"A great success and I would not hesitate in bringing them back to Bristol!!!"

Mark Court, Promotor

3) "Many thanks to you and the band for a wonderful evening last week. The band were so accommodating to our needs, and really made the whole night go with a bang. The professionalism and quality of your set up was fantastic, you've set up a really wonderful business that I would be delighted to use again."
- Category Marketing Director - Cadbury (Britain & Ireland)

4) "Thank you very much for an excellent show. You were all brilliant. Everyone had a great evening and are all hounding me to do it again. If I do I won't hesitate to contact you. Thanks again."
- Paul G. - Private Party, Somerset
