DUBAI // Get out those pastel shirts because eighties pop-icons Duran Duran are coming to Dubai next year.

Armed with an arsenal of pop classics, in addition to new tunes from well received 13th album All You Need is Now, singer Simon Le Bon and company will perform at the Sevens Stadium on March 8.

The group’s Dubai show marks a continuation of a world tour which stalled after Le Bon injured his vocals chords in May during a performance in Cannes.

The surgery and subsequent rehabilitation forced the band to abandon the remaining shows.

The Wild Boys stars plan to make ammends with an ambitious touring programme next year, with scheduled shows in Europe, Asia and Australia announced so far.

Tickets will go on sale from January 8 at 9am with the public able to register for pre-sale details at durandurandubai.com.
