    Duran Duran will promote the release of their November 13 album, Red Carpet Massacre, by hosting nine shows at the Barrymore Theater on Broadway. While it's an unconventional venue for the band, singer Simon LeBon explained the decision to Billboard.com. "We have made an album that we are all really proud of and we wanted to present it in a very unique way." He added, "Staging a run on Broadway is something that we've often talked about over the years— but the time has never seemed right until now." The nine-night residency will run from November 1-10, with an off-night on the 7th.

    But this isn't the end to the experimentalism of the new wave icons' return. Red Carpet Massacre features collaborations with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland, who are both pretty unexpected choices. Keyboardist Nick Rhodes explained, "I'm always personally really inspired by working with urban producers, more so than rock producers. They really bring something to the songs that we don't have completely covered, whereas with rock producers, often I find [they suggest] things we'd do ourselves naturally anyway."

    This is the track listing:

    1. The Valley
    2. Red Carpet Massacre
    3. Nite-Runner
    4. Falling Down
    5. Box Full o'Honey
    6. Skin Divers
    7. Tempted
    8. Tricked Out
    9. Zoom In
    10. She's Too Much
    11. Dirty Great Monster
    12. Last Man Standing
