Guests dined, privately viewed some of the museum's artworks, then attended a performance by the band in the I. Pei -designed Pyramid du Louvre. The group's performance marked a first for the 18th-century museum which had never before allowed a rock concert to occur anywhere within the grounds or buildings and another groundbreaker for Duran Duran.
On 2 Julyin Paris, Mark Ronson performed a unique live set with Duran Duran for an exclusive, invitation-only performance. Together, they showcased specially re-worked versions of some of Duran Duran's classic hits re-created by Ronson, along with tracks from Red Carpet Massacre.

We are all such big fans of John's work and are honoured Daniel Dubb & Alex:One - Love Hungry (File have him adding his magic to the record! There are no current plans for John to tour with us, but his guitars sound incredible on the tracks.
Hoping to have more news for you soon.

Rhodes was quoted as saying, "I will be back as soon as I can but know, in the meantime, that I am leaving MP3) the band and fans in great hands, with the fabulous MNDR.
Rhodes commented, "We signed a publishing agreement as unsuspecting teenagers, over three decades ago, when just starting out and when we knew no better On 16 JulyRhodes said the band had been working on a new album since the beginning of the year, with Ronson, Erol Alkan and Giorgio Moroder handling production duties, and Lykke Li and Graham Coxon being confirmed as collaborators.
It's just so different from anything I've heard from us before, or actually anyone else. There's a dance element to it. The construction of it, the melodic content, the lyrics, some of the sounds Although they began their career as "a group of art school, experimental, post punk rockers,"  the band's quick rise to stardom, polished good looks and embrace of the teen press almost guaranteed disfavour from music critics. During the s, Duran Duran were considered the quintessential manufactured, throw-away pop group, Daniel Dubb & Alex:One - Love Hungry (File.
However, according to the Sunday Herald"To describe them, as some have, as the first boy band, misrepresents their appeal. Their weapons were never just their looks, but self-penned songs. Several of the band's contemporaries including the BanglesElton JohnKylie MinoguePaul Young and even the Monkeeshave named themselves fans of the band's music. Le Bon described the group as "the band to dance to when the bomb drops".
Singer Justin Timberlake has claimed to being one of their biggest fans. The band's music has been used by several hip hop artists, most notably The Notorious B.
Numerous bands have covered their music on record and in concert. Dante mirrors John Taylor's looks with his long rocker hairstyle, clothing, and mannerisms. The MTV cable channel and the band were launched at about the same time, and each had a hand in propelling the other to greater heights.
Les Garland, senior executive vice-president at MTV, said "I remember our director of talent and artist relations came running in and said, "You have got to see this video that's come in". Duran Duran were getting zero radio airplay at the time, and MTV wanted to try to break new music.
First, Duran Duran filmed in exotic locales like Sri Lanka and Antiguacreating memorable images that were radically different from the then-common low budget "band-playing-on-a-stage" videos. Second, rather than simply playing their instruments, the band participated in mini-storylines often taking inspiration from contemporary movies: "Hungry Like the Wolf" riffs on Raiders of the Lost Ark"The Wild Boys" on The Road Warrioretc.
Videos were obviously headed in this direction already, but Duran Duran led the trend with a style, featuring quick editing, arresting graphic design, and surreal-to-nonsensical image inserts, that drew attention from MP3) and spawned a wealth of imitators.
Duran Duran were among the first bands to have their videos shot with a professional movie camera on 35mm film, rather than on videotape, making them look superior to many of the quickly shot videos which had been MTV staples until then. MTV provided Duran Duran with access to American radio markets that were unfriendly to British music, new wave music, or "anything with synthesisers". Duran Duran have always sought out innovative directors and techniques, even in their later years when MTV gave them little airplay.
In addition to Mulcahy, they have had videos filmed by influential photographers Dean Chamberlain and Ellen von UnwerthChinese director Chen Kaigedocumentary filmmaker Julien Templeand the Polish Brothersamong others. Next to the prosaic, foursquare appearance of the American bands, such acts as Duran Duran seemed like caviar.
MTV opened up a whole new world that could not be fully apprehended over the radio. The visual angle played to the arty conceits of Britain's young style barons, suggesting something more exotic than the viewer was likely to find in the old hometown. And via MTV, Duran Duran and their like have engendered an outpouring of good old-fashioned hysteria among teenage girls.
InDuran Duran introduced video technology into their live stadium shows by being among the first acts to provide video screens above the stage. Inthey experimented with augmented reality technology, which allowed three-dimensional computer-generated images to appear on stage with the band.
MTV named "Hungry" the 15th of their most played videos of all time. The band has released several video compilations, starting with the self-titled "video album" Duran Duranfor which they won a Grammy Awardup to the two-disc DVD release Greatestwhich included alternative versions of several popular videos as Easter eggs.
Live from Londona concert video from one of their sold-out reunion shows at Wembley Arena, was released in the fall of Other video collections, concert films, and documentaries remain available only on videotape, and Duran Duran have not yet released a collection which includes all their videos. The band has said that a huge amount of unreleased concert and documentary footage has been filmed over the years, which they hope can be edited and released in some form in the near future.
The video for "Falling Down" was released in October The video was directed by Jonas Akerlundand during the filming, an editorial was made for Harper's Bazaar magazine.
