Duran Duran announced they will perform two back-to-back shows at The Mountain Winery in Saratoga, California late this summer. The legendary British new wave band will hit the stage for a two-night run on Sept. 10 and Sept. 11. Tickets go on sale at AXS this Friday, May 17 at 10 a.m. PT.
Duran Duran rose to fame in ‘80s at the peak of new wave popularity. Their self-titled debut album dropped in 1981. Its third single, “Girls on Film,” caught fire with fans and shot to No. 5 on the UK singles chart.

Following the success of the single’s edgy MTV video, the album shot to No. 2 on the UK Albums chart. They released their second album, Rio, in 1982. It spawned a stream of hits including “My Own Way,” “Hungry Like the Wolf,” the title track (“Rio”) and more. The band eventually picked up a huge American following in the wake of a headlining tour of the U.S., Japan, and Australia.
Duran Duran went on to forge a prolific music career during which they earned dozens of accolades. Their achievements include two BRIT Awards, two Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe nomination and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Last year, the Birmingham native group released a video for the track “The Edge of America” to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of their 1988 album Big Thing. To date, the group has sold over 100 million records worldwide. Their most recent album is Paper Gods, which dropped in 2015 from Warner Brothers Records.
