It's great to really be getting back to pre-pandemic times, with great shows coming to town. Colorado's famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre will be hosting two nights or great music when Duran Duran's "Future Past" tour hits the Denver area. 'Future Past' is the name of the band's 15th and latest album, featuring the single, "Laughing Boy."

You can't deny that Simon and guys are looking as good as ever. Also, keep your prayers coming for former guitarist Andy Taylor, who is battling Stage 4 prostate cancer. Seeing the boys on stage again, will be fun.

Red Rocks is going through a few improvements as they get ready for the summer shows of 2023; these two nights of Duran Duran will have attendees seeing those upgrades. The last time Duran Duran played Red Rocks was the summer of 2015, much has changed in the worlds since then; how will their stage presence change?

You have to appreciate how the band is touring on new music, not just out there playing the same "old" hits tour after tour. They still love making music and bringing that music to longtime fans, as well as growing their brand with a new generation of fans.

This tour will have Niles Rodgers and Chic along with Bastille at each show, alternating on which band goes on before Duran Duran. These will be two huge summer nights of awesome music.
