Pop rock superstars Duran Duran have taken on North America all summer long and will wrap their jaunt across the U.S. and Canada on October 8. The group has been touring in support of their 2015 release, Paper Gods, which dropped earlier this month. Expect to pay big for tickets if planning to attend an upcoming gig, however, as Duran Duran tickets own a secondary market average of $166.79.
The “Hungry Like the Wolf” creators make their most expensive remaining stop on October 2 at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Tickets to that show currently average $261.75 and the cheapest ticket is listed for $162. Conversely, an October 8show at the Theater at MSG in New York City in conjunction with 102.7 Fall Fest is the most affordable Duran Duran show at an average price of $142.30 and a $33 get-in price.
Paper Gods is the band’s fourteenth studio album and first since All You Need Is Now was released in 2011. The album debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it Duran Duran’s first album to do so since 1993’s self-titled LP. Following the conclusion of their North American tour a brief U.K. run of shows is scheduled between late-November and mid-December.
