Pop legends Duran Duran are coming to the Principality of Monaco as part of the Monte-Carlo Summer Festival. The band will be performing their latest offering, the Halloween-themed Dance Macabre, at the Salle des Étoiles at the end of July.

Duran Duran, the supergroup of the 1980s that charmed the world with their breezy attitudes, bouncy lyrics and oh-so-great hair, will be hitting the stage at the famous Monaco venue on Thursday 25th July for a one-night-only gig.  

The band, which boasts a string of major hits, including Rio, Hungry Like the Wolf and Girls on Film, has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide, earning two Grammy Awards, two Ivor Novellos and two Brit Awards. Its members were also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2022. 

Fast forward to 2024 and the band is still drawing huge crowds – and acclaim – following the 2023 release of Dance Macabre. The title is a play on the 16th century representations of dancing skeletons made famous by Hans Holbein. It features three new tracks alongside reimagined versions of Duran Duran classics.  

Doors to the exclusive show will open at 8pm, with the concert starting at 10.30pm.  

Ticket prices begin at €400 for dinner and the show, excluding drinks. Prestige package tickets, which will guarantee the best seats and a bottle of Champagne to share, cost €680 per person.
