Michael Armstrong is an exciting new British talent, unashamedly raw, emotional and direct. On the outside are his. His songs strike you immediately as being well-honed classics, which have echoes of the crafted lyrics of Dylan and the musicality of The Eagles, Paul Carrack and Steely Dan.
DURAN2 uniquely recreate the energy and unique sound of the original band, featuring the widest range of material from their eponymous 1981 debut album to their latest global hit. They are a professional live five-piece band and every attention has been made to ensure DURAN2 is the most authentic sounding experience possible to Duran Duran.
