Regrettably, keyboardist Nick Rhodes will be leaving the current Duran Duran tour tomorrow for a short period of time, to return to the UK to attend to an urgent family matter.  The band have just embarked on the third US leg of their Paper Gods tour, which kicked off last night in Nashville.  They are currently in Chicago, where they play two nights at the Ravinia Pavilion (Friday July 8 and Saturday July 9).
Standing in for Nick will be long-time friend and collaborator, artist MNDR.  
Speaking this afternoon from Chicago, Nick said “I am devastated to be missing even a single date on this tour.  We are having such an amazing time and the shows have been some of the most exciting of our career.  I will be back as soon as I can but know, in the meantime, that I am leaving both the band and fans in great hands, with the fabulous MNDR.”

One of the most influential bands of the last three decades, Duran Duran has sold over 100 million records and continues to top the charts around the world, most recently on their latest studio album ‘Paper Gods’, which entered at #10 on the Billboard Top 200. Earning them rave reviews and their highest chart position in more than 22 years, ‘Paper Gods’ features a host of A-list collaborators – including Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson, Mr Hudson, Janelle Monáe, John Frusciante, Kiesza and Jonas Bjerre from Mew.

The Paper Gods Tour kicked off with a handful of dates last October to coincide with the release of their 14th studio album, and has been hailed by fans and critics alike as a triumphant return to form.

“Duran Duran’s new album may be titled ‘Paper Gods,’ but the four Brits proved they are living, breathing rock stars Wednesday…in a show that was powerful, energetic and surprisingly current.” – Seattle Times

“..magnificently preposterous, sublimely poignant.’ – The Guardian, UK

Duran Duran’s countless hit singles include “Hungry Like The Wolf”, “Rio”, “Girls On Film”, “The Reflex”, “Ordinary World”, “A View To a Kill”, “Save A Prayer” and “(Reach Up For The) Sunrise”. Concertgoers can expect to hear these timeless classics alongside their stellar new material.

CHIC is best known for their hugely popular disco songs “Dance, Dance, Dance”, “Everybody Dance”, “Le Freak”, “I Want Your Love” and “Good Times”.
