Duran Duran vow to carry on touring after they’re dead with help of holograms

Exclusive:

Duran Duran singer Roger Taylor has revealed that the rock band are keen on the idea of using holograms at concerts once they ‘kick the bucket’

Duran Duran have vowed to carry on touring – even after they’re dead.

As the group battle for a No1 album against Sir Elton John, Roger Taylor has given the green light to performing as holograms, like Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson, after the group, as he puts it, “kick the bucket”.

The 61-year-old drummer says: “Once we’re gone. Once we’ve kicked the bucket, that would be fine – we’d be quite happy with that.”

The band, who played two gigs in Birmingham last month, have slowed down on the road since becoming “Glamfathers”, as Simon Le Bon, 63, has called himself since daughter Saffron had her first child in 2018.

Roger says: “We’ve had to slow down a little bit, we take it a little bit easier.

“We’ll probably end up like The Rolling Stones – they do about a gig a week.”

Roger rules out following the lead of ABBA and doing a hologram gig while the group are alive.

He says: “Once you take away that spontaneity, I think, I think you are losing something.

“It’s not something we would do at the moment, while we are still standing.”

Speaking of someone who is famously Still Standing…

The race is on for this week’s top spot in the album chart.

Sir Elton, 74, is narrowly in the lead with his Lockdown Sessions, but Duran Duran’s Future Past is on course to be their highest-charting album since the 1980s.

But Roger wishes Elton well.

He says: “How incredible that two artists who have been in the business for almost 100 years combined are vying for a top spot.”
