New Wave icons, Duran Duran have given us our first glimpse of their upcoming concert film entitled, A Hollywood High. Announced today, the 75-minute documentary will be released in cinemas globally on November 3, 2022. You can watch the trailer for it below.
The cinematic footage captures the band’s one-off rooftop performance on The Aster in Hollywood, overlooking the iconic Capitol Records building, as well as interviews and archival footage illustrating their long-time love affair with the city.
Duran Duran keyboardist, Nick Rhodes said in a statement: “For our first US show in several years we wanted to do something really special and intimate.”
“After considering many options, a rooftop performance quickly became the frontrunner. It was post-pandemic, we had never done anything like that before, and we had just released a new album. Somehow it seemed like a magical doorway to the next part of our journey.”
Bassist John Taylor added: “Duran Duran have had an enduring relationship with the city of Los Angeles since the first time we came to America.”
“We were determined to do something unique to celebrate our four decades together. A rooftop performance in LA with the Capitol Records building across the street and the Hollywood sign looming in the distance sounded perfect and turned out to be an extraordinary night for all of us.”

Recently, Duran Duran took time out of their Hollywood Bowl performance to pay tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II.
Frontman Simon Le Bon dedicated a performance of Say A Prayer to the late monarch and told the crowd, “So, you know that it’s a real sad time for a lot of us Brits, and a lot of other people around the world, and we would like to make our own tribute to Queen Elizabeth II.”
“If you’d like to join us and show your respect, please take your cell phone out, switch the light on. Let’s fill the Bowl with light for the queen. We say goodbye.”
