Duran Duran played to the cheering crowd as the headliner for the BST Hyde Park Festival in London on Sunday night.

The band by Nile Rodgers and Chic as part of the show performed their biggest hit on the Great Oak stage when festival attendees enjoyed the sunny days.

Gig marked Duran Duran’s BST debut and is part of their 40th anniversary tour as well as the only London show in 2022.

The band, consisting of singer Simon Le Bon, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, bassist John Taylor, and drummer Roger Taylor, kicked off with the 1980s hit The Wild Boys.

Lubon shouted to the crowd. “How are you doing in the good old London town? We are Duran Duran.”

The band, formed in Birmingham in 1978, also performed Hungry Like the Wolf, Girls on Film, Notorious, The Reflex and the Bond theme, and A View To A Kill.

It also includes material from the 15th studio album, the recent album “Future Past”. The song included Anniversary and All of You.

Le Bon, who introduced Nile Rodgers to the crowd, said Duran Duran first worked with musicians and producers in the 1980s.

“Without him, Duran Duran wouldn’t exist today,” he said.

“Today, this man will be an honorary member of Duran Duran.”

Le Bon later dedicated the song Ordinary World to the Ukrainian people.
