Simon Le Bon is now back in full voice, after rigorous treatment to rehabilitate muscles controlling his vocal chords. The shows will be the first time the band have invited fans into open rehearsals with no production in a very intimate space. DURAN DURAN will then fly to America for the "ALL YOU NEED IS NOW" World Tour in September. The band return to the UK for twelve arena concerts, starting 30th November at The Brighton Centre, Brighton.
Le Bon said,
"I am absolutely thrilled to be getting back on the road and touring again after my recent vocal injury. It's been an incredibly tough time and extremely frustrating, but after receiving treatment I have made gradual improvements each week in recovering the upper part of my range. I am truly grateful for the incredible support of our fans, the many well wishes and their patience in what has been a difficult time for us all as a band. Â Inviting the fans into rehearsals before we start our American tour seemed like the perfect opportunity. Â We are all really excited at the prospect of coming back to the UK in November, we have an incredible production that we've been working on for this tour - and the new songs are sounding great."
