Eighties “new wave” band Duran Duran had cancelled four of their planned concerts for South Africa, it emerged today.

According to the band’s agent, Duran Duran cancelled the concerts following a non-performance issue on the part of the local promoter of the tour, said public affairs company Corporate Image.

Concerts were to have taken place on December 8 and 9 at Carnival City in Brakpan, and on December 11 and 12 at the GrandWest in Cape Town.

Responding to the cancellation, Sun International said: “We are disappointed that issues with the promoters have resulted in the cancellation.

“We were looking forward to hosting a great experience for our visitors and are sorry that they have been let down by something out of our control.”

Computicket would refund all ticket holders in full, the statement said.
