A six-night sellout stand at the House of Blues in West Hollywood last year inspire the trio’s Up Close tour, which finds Simon LeBon, Nick Rhodes and Warren Cuccurullo playing multiple nights at large nightclubs through March.

After an appearance February 27 at the Livestock Show and Rodeo in Houston, the band heads for New York City’s Beacon Theatre to launch the club tour March 1-2.

Along the way, Duran Duran will play five nights in Atlanta and Chicago, three in Anaheim, and two in the House of Blues venues in New Orleans; Lake Buena Vista, Fla.; and Las Vegas.

In addition, there will be single shows in Mashantucket, Conn.; and Myrtle Beach, S.C.

“The band had a great time last summer, playing six nights consecutively sold-out at the House of Blues in LA,” Duran Duran rep Adam Kornfeld told Pollstar. “They had a great time, and that was where we got the idea for this tour,”

“The tour is called Up Close, and that’s what it’s about. The shows are a little more intimate. The demand exists for longer runs, like the five sold-out shows in Chicago,” he said, adding that many shows in other markets have already sold out.

The band that first made its name during the early days of MTV still has legs: Duran Duran has been out on the road for much of the last year in support of last year’s album, Pop Trash.
