Duran Duran, the iconic ’80s band who’s returned with a new album and tour, will be broadcasting their UNSTAGED performance live at 7 p.m. PT, today March 23, on their YouTube channel.
The show is part of YouTube’s UNSTAGED concert series, presented in partnership with Amex and VEVO, and it’ll be directed by famed cult director David Lynch.
Few bands embodied the 1980s like Duran Duran. They had the best hair, the loveliest makeup, outlandish fashion…and they released a slew of amazing pop songs other bands would have killed to have written. “Planet Earth” is a case in point: one of their earliest hits, it encompasses the style that would make them famous.
And for fans who are looking to learn more about a group who’s held the public’s attention for so many years, you’re in luck. Director David Lynch has been following the band and capturing amazing behind-the-scenes footage. He’s asked the band about their firsts — first concert, first band, first moment they were truly starstruck. He’s also been inviting the guys to record their dreams in a video journal. Simon LeBon offers up a fascinating one for your interpretation below.
