The latest act revealed to headline British Summer Time at Hyde Park, London are Duran Duran who will perform on Sunday 11th July 2021. Originally due to play in 2020, this will be the band's first London show for 6 years.
Joining them on the day will be guests including Nile Rodgers and CHIC, and Grace Jones. These have history with the band with Nile Rodgers having produced them, and Grace Jones starred in the Bond film where Duran Duran provided the title tune. There's many more acts to be added.
Simon Le Bon said "We are so happy to announce the new date for our return to Hyde Park. This will be our first London show in six years and we are honoured that two of our musical heroes Nile Rodgers and Grace Jones will be joining us on the bill. Seeing as we had to postpone the 2020 show, BST Hyde Park 2021 will be extra special to us. After the year that everyone's been through, we're aiming to make next summer into the kind of party we all deserve."
Jim King, CEO of European Festivals at AEG Presents, says, "It's wonderful to finally talk about and look forward to next summer knowing that the light we can see at the end of the tunnel will be the sunshine at American Express presents BST Hyde Park. We have always finished each year with a huge party and we need one now more than ever. It's therefore with our enormous thanks to Duran Duran that they have made it possible to bring their incredible hit-packed live show to Hyde Park just when we all needed it most. We celebrate this moment with Duran Duran and the man who helped them make some of their biggest hits, Nile Rodgers and the incredible CHIC. The band also have the legendary Grace Jones joining them for what will be an incredible day of quality music and a chance for us all to dance again."
