Duran Duran will kick-off the second year of the highly successful "American Express Unstaged" music series on March 23rd and the event, which already sold out, will be live-streamed.
The band's performance will mark the first time an artist within the "American Express Unstaged" music series plays from Los Angeles and also coincides with the start of Duran Duran's first official tour since 2008. Their new album drops March 22nd.
Award-winning filmmaker David Lynch (The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive) has been tapped to direct the live-stream performance and will look to provide fans with a visually stunning home viewing experience. In addition to a number of digital initiatives, audiences worldwide will be able to collaborate with Lynch in an on-stage and online art installation, by submitting photos which will be showcased on surreal displays throughout the night, as fans can also tweet questions to Duran Duran (#amexduranduran) for a chance to have them answered during the pre-Show.
The 2011 "American Express Unstaged" kick-off performance will be live-streamed on March 23rd from the Mayan Theatre in LA at 10:00 PM ET / 7:00PM PT here.
The "American Express Unstaged" music series showcases some of the industry's most breakthrough artists playing at landmark venues across the country, while tapping some of today's most influential filmmakers to direct the live-streams and using digital and social media to connect the online audience to the live shows in unexpected ways.
The tickets are already sold out, but fans can be part of the action by interacting with the live-stream, which brings the in-concert and at-home viewing experiences to entirely new heights!
