    Time to get hungry like the wolf again!

    Duran Duran will play a bunch of shows in the US next month, after Simon Le Bon's vocal problems prompted the '80s band to scrap a series of summer shows.

    The Double D was also forced to can gigs in the UK this spring, as well. Le Bon has had throat issues, which forced him to rest his voice and stop singing. The entire summer trek was canceled so that Le Bon could continue to rest his damaged vocal cords and undergo physical therapy. Clearly, the rest and therapy worked, since the band announced that it will begin touring the US on September 23rd in Everett, Washington and will be on the road until October 29th, when they wrap the tour in Atlantic City, NJ.
