Duran Duran's 2016 tour includes three Florida stops (with one in Tampa)



Duran Duran has finally announced its tour dates in support of their Paper Gods tour. The  tour includes three stops in Florida, including an April 2 date at Tampa’s MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheater. Tickets go on sale to the public Dec. 12.

Chic featuring Nile Rodgers will open for Duran Duran, no surprise considering Nile was “the guy” helping them produce Paper Gods.

So is this the first can't-miss tour in 2016 for '80s fans? I'm not so sure. The Cure's tour to me feels like it deserves the No. 1 spot for now. I didn't love Paper Gods, and I really don't love the parking situation at the amphitheater. Too bad the lads couldn't have found an indoor venue. (Their last stop in Tampa Bay at Ruth Eckerd Hall was truly bucket list.)
