”This past year we have spent most of our time in the studio working on new songs, so we are very much looking forward to getting back onto a London stage for this special appearance.”

John Taylor, January 2015

Duran Duran & War Child, January 17, 2015 | Duran Duran will be playing at Wilton Music Hall [250 capacity], in London, on February 19th to help War Child UK to raise funds for all its great activities in help and support of the children victims of the war.

You can support War Child to bring hope and safety back to children in war zones, after an unprecedented year of violence.
For your chance to win a pair of tickets go here. Each £4.50 entry gives you a chance of being at these incredible shows [including Duran Duran!] and at least £4.15 will go to War Child. Good luck!

Passport Back To The Bars, a week of one-off events offering incredible access to big name acts in the most intimate music venues

Produced by War Child UK, O2 and the Music Managers Forum, the Passport shows are a part of BRIT Awards Week 2015. These will be the smallest gigs making the biggest difference.

The venues in London and Manchester will be tiny - around 300 capacity and smaller – and fans will get the chance to win tickets by donating to War Child.

This marks ten years since War Child’s original Passport Back To The Bars shows for victims of the Iraq war.

All the money raised will support War Child’s vital work saving children from the brutal effects of war in areas including Syria, Iraq and Gaza. These stripped back, intimate shows will have a life-changing impact for thousands of vulnerable children.

Duran Duran’s John Taylor says: “Thousands of children are innocent victims in the war zones of adult conflict around the world. They are often being denied education and other basic human rights. We are looking forward to performing an exclusive event in London this coming February, in support of War Child and the important work they do in the regions where these children are suffering.

Ben Knowles, War Child’s Director of Music says:

“2014 saw more people displaced by war than any year since World War 2. It is a global emergency.
These child refugees have no passports.
They don’t get to choose where war sends them.
The support of these bands and the generosity
of music fans can send them hope.”

 

War Child looks forward to a world in which the lives of children
are no longer torn apart by war.
War Child’s mission is to support and improve the protection and care
of children and young people who live with a combination of insecurity,
poverty and exclusion in some of the worst
conflict-affected places…
