Duran Duran cancel on too little interest

2010-12-01 00:00

DURAN Duran fans will not be getting a chance to see the band play live in Durban next week, because the British band has cancelled its South African tour due to disappointing sales.

“We have tried to negotiate a reduced number of shows in South Africa with the band’s management in order to go ahead with the tour as planned, but sadly could not reach an agreement,” Sam Hendrikse, chief executive officer of the organisers, Hunta Live, said.

“This is the first tour Hunta Live has ever had to cancel — and after a great year, it is a big disappointment for us too. We apologise to all the fans for any inconvenience caused due to the short notice, but would like to assure them that we are doing everything we can from our side to secure dates for next year to bring the super group that is Duran Duran to South Africa.”

Anyone who has bought a ticket to the Durban show can get a full refund from any Computicket outlet.
