Big 80s Backtrack: Culture Club and Duran Duran with new music and concert dates
Been a while since we’ve heard from 2 of the quintessential bands that defined the 80s sound.
But Culture Club will be starting work on a new album – their first attempt since their last album came out in 1999.
The band will be touring and making stops at New York City’s Beacon Theater and here in Jersey at the Mark G. Etess Arena at the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City Nov. 28.
The foursome will record with well-traveled producer Youth, whose credits include The Verve, The Cult, Crowded House and Primal Scream.
And if that don’t beat all, so too Duran Duran, who’ll be finishing up work on a new album, with a full plate.
The album will be mixed next month, and Rhodes said it will be out in the first half of 2015. Also the band will appear at the Fashion Rocks concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on Sept. 9 before releasing “Duran Duran: Unstaged” in more than 300 North American theaters on Sept. 10.
