Influential British music icons Duran Duran light up the ACL stage as they kick off this entertaining hour with a new song: “INVISIBLE,” a synth-funk gem that fits right into the band’s canon, and the lead track from their 15th studio album and first record in six years, FUTURE PAST. Legendary frontman Simon Le Bon and longtime bandmates, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, bassist John Taylor and drummer Roger Taylor, showcase their undeniable chemistry in a career-spanning performance featuring fan-favorites including “Hungry Like the Wolf,” “A View To A Kill,” “Planet Earth” and “Girls on Film.”

Hailing from Birmingham, England, Duran Duran first arrived on the UK scene with their critically acclaimed 1981 self-titled debut. Four decades on, these musical pioneers perform their latest single “ANNIVERSARY,” a pop banger that doubles as a nod to an incredible forty years of making music together. A set highlight is the 1993 smash “Ordinary World,” given new resonance in our current reality, which Le Bon dedicates to everyone who has been struggling to get back to ordinary life over the course of the pandemic. The band caps the swagger-fueled set with an anthem for the ages, “Save A Prayer,” from their 1982 landmark Rio, as the standing ovation crowd raises their cell phones in an appreciative sea of lights, with Le Bon letting the fans sing the chorus for a memorable close.
