Duran Duran Oakland Tickets
Duran Duran are one of the most enduring British bands of all-time. Formed in 1978, the band emerged as an alternative rock band in 1982 before gaining mainstream popularity as a pop band by 1984. The band wavered in terms the musical direction they wanted to pursue in later years, but enjoyed a strong comeback in the early 90s with a slew of hits. Several media outlets considered them one of the leading members of the Second British Invasion of America. The legendary band is now scheduled to perform at the Fox Theater and you can watch them live by getting Duran Duran Oakland tickets.
The band’s current lineup features four members including vocalist Simon Le Bon, bassist John Taylor, keyboardist John Rhoads and drummer Roger Taylor. Guitarist Dominic Brown has been touring with the band since 2006 but is not an official member.
Over the course of their career, Duran Duran have spawned fourteen studio albums, four live albums and seven compilation albums. The band’s eponymous debut album came out in 1981 and peaked at number 3 three on the UK charts and at number ten on the Billboard 200.
The band’s next two releases, Rio and Seven and the Ragged Tiger were both top ten hits in the US and their native UK, with the records going platinum in both countries. The band released several moderately successful albums following that but they did not achieve the success of their first three releases.
Duran Duran’s next major hit came in 1993. Their seventh album, Duran Duran (The Wedding Album) peaked at number four in the UK and at number seven in the US. The album went on to be certified platinum in the country as well.
