2022 served as something of a landmark year for Duran Duran, having just been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, a career peak that followed a summer live season of epic proportions – headlining London’s Hyde Park in front of 60,000 people, performing at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace and closing the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in their home town of Birmingham, not to mention a headline tour across North America which included sold out shows at New York City’s Madison Square Garden and three nights at the Hollywood Bowl. The cinematic release of their new docu-concert film, A Hollywood High followed, before the band capped off the year with a spectacular performance in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, counting fans down into 2023 in front of a live audience of over one million people on the streets of Manhattan. All this after the huge success of new studio album Future Past, hailed as Duran Duran at their best by critics and fans alike, four decades into their rich and storied career.

A deluxe edition called Future Past (Complete Edition) is out now via BMG. The red and green 2 LP set includes all 15 tracks from the original album plus Duran Duran’s cover of David Bowie’s “Five Years.” The gatefold package features a new silver/grey version of the cover art and also includes two 12″ x 12″ art booklets.
