1, 2012 | While I write this the band is in Rio playing
a show at the Citibank Hall. They'll continue touring South
America untill May 5th with shows in Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires
and Santiago. We'll make sure to to post some reports from the
South American leg of the AYNIN tour in the upcoming days, as
soon as we get all the stuff from our local correspondents.
news we all hoped to hear!
to the main subject of this new post... If you haven't heard
it yet, please do yourself a favour, check out the new super
cool Katy's Kafe dated april 16, 2012 up on the
official fan community. In this new chat with birthday boy
Roger Taylor [who turned 52 on the 26th] Katy Krassner and Roger
talk about many interesting subjects but the most interesting
part starts when Roger says:
found ourselves again in this record and we are all looking
to the next one.
Katy asks: When do you think you guys might
go back into the studio?
"Well, we are talking about early next year actually,
I can't say who we're gonna be recording
with... at this point... cos I'm sure that's going to
be a big announcement in itself. But,
I can't possibly announce myself, right now. But, it's
yeah, we're gonna have a bit of time off after these
run of dates, once we've been around the US again, and
we'll have some time off, and restart next year, early
says they'll take the Fall off
"John hit the nail on the head when he said "we
need to miss each other a little bit". We spent so much
time together on this tour, we need that space, we gotta get
hungry again and be excited to make a great record."
spontaneous and candid statement is all the fans needed now!
The way he worded the band's intention to go back into the studio
lead us to think that the guys have already some kind of project
in mind and they seems to know alrerady who will be producing
their next work.
is all very-very promising and exciting as Roger said! Thanks
to Roger for giving the fans such a cool news which is just
the symptom of a lively and continuously active band, full of
creative wealth and projects.
fans of Duran Duran are very lucky as their devotion is rewarded
with very good fruits: wonderful concerts and great albums,
something that doesn't happen to all the bands with a thirty
year long career behind them.
a Duran Duran fan myself I can only say that I'm so incredibly
happy and excited about the future of this band, just because
I see lots more fruits coming from the longevous and productive
Duran Duran tree.
