Thirty-odd years into their career and British pop/rock fashionistas Duran Duran and still blazing trails… or at least keeping things interesting for their fans. The group has just announced it will be premiering its concert film, A Diamond in the Mind, on Facebook July 8 at 2 pm EST.
And to ramp up the excitement, members Simon Le Bon, John Taylor (mmm, John Taylor), Roger Taylor, and Nick Rhodes will "call in" from Istanbul, where they will be on tour, to connect with fans in a live Q&A session.
The debut will cost $4.99 to see; however, it also comes with a 30-day free pass to Quello where viewers can see the program Classic Albums: Rio along with the services full roster of HD concert films and music documentaries, according to Australia's Noise 11.
Directed by Gavin Elder, A Diamond In The Mind captures Duran Duran’s show at Manchester’s MEN Arena last December. The film will be issued on DVD and Blu-ray on July 10 representing the band’s first live release in almost a decade.
Speaking from London, singer Le Bon said, “We really hope the fans will enjoy this experience. The Manchester show was a special one for us and we’re very proud of the film. It has a different feel from anything we’ve done before, but we think it completely captures the spirit of the performance that night.”
