Ticket alert: Duran Duran at Fillmore Miami Beach

SouthFlorida.com

Durable pop icons Duran Duran will perform at the Fillmore Miami Beach on Feb. 12, when they will share such 1980s anthems as “Rio” and “Hungry Like the Wolf” and first-rate modern rock from their most recent album, “Paper Gods.”

General-admission tickets are scheduled to go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 7, at LiveNation.com, by phone at 800-745-3000 and at the Fillmore box office, 1700 Washington Ave. For more information, visit FillmoreMB.com.

Perhaps an indication of where Duran Duran fans are in their lives now, tickets will cost $89.50. A limited number of reserved seats are available for $189.50.

Released in late 2015, the critically praised “Paper Gods” linked Duran Duran with a new group of influences, including Kanye West-Jay-Z collaborator Ben "Mr" Hudson, DJ-producer Mark Ronson, Nile Rodgers, Janelle Monae and former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante.

Duran Duran has been celebrating the 30th anniversary of the 1988 album “Big Thing,” and last month released a new music video for the track "The Edge of America," an anguished view of a deteriorating relationship between man and the natural world. The video was made in collaboration with Colombian-Venezuelan media artist David Medina.

In a statement accompanying the release of the video, keyboardist Nick Rhodes said he was “confounded that it felt more prescient now than it did when we recorded it.”

““The video David has created is a gaze at humanity which expresses compassion [and] empathy, that is so sadly lacking in much of our world at this time,” Rhodes said.
