Duran Duran to headline BST Hyde Park 2021

Calling all wild boys and girls on film…British icons DURAN DURAN are back, excited to play their hugely anticipated show. Joining them are music legends NILE RODGERS & CHIC and GRACE JONES – both long-time collaborators and great friends of the band.

DURAN DURAN are one of the most successful and ground-breaking bands to come out of the UK in the past four decades, a group that defined a generation and continue to prove themselves timeless, always innovating and reinventing, while remaining ahead of the curve.

Comprised of singer Simon Le Bon, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, bassist John Taylor and drummer Roger Taylor, DURAN DURAN have sold over 100 million records, with 21 UK Top 20 hits and 18 US charting singles. Few bands have celebrated such huge global success and still hold major headlining status. This is their BST Hyde Park debut and their only London show of 2021, so a milestone in itself.

The legendary NILE RODGERS will bring CHIC back to Hyde Park for the first time in 6 years; the last show he welcomed audience members onto the Great Oak Stage for a live disco. Even among music legends, NILE RODGERS is truly exceptional. He amplifies his legacy as a multiple Grammy-winning composer, producer and guitarist by constantly traversing new musical terrain.

Also joining the line up is GRACE JONES – one of the most vital artists to emerge from New York’s Studio 54 disco scene of the late 1970s. She is a true visionary, who has been many things during her years in the spotlight: dancehall queen, artistic muse, style icon and actress. Though she got her start on the runways, soon Jones was on the cover of magazines, topping the dance charts with disco and R&B hits like “Pull Up to the Bumper” and “Slave to the Rhythm”, and befriending and influencing major players in the art and fashion worlds.
