Bloom Twins are announced to open for Duran Duran on all dates of their UK tour

MULTI PLATINUM ARTIST – SEAL – ADDED AS SPECIAL GUEST ON UPCOMING DURAN DURAN UK ARENA TOUR
The Bloom Twins to open on all dates

Returning from a successful run of sold out arena shows and festivals in the US around the release of their new album (Paper Gods), and receipt of two prestigious international awards in the last month alone (the Q Magazine Icon Award and MTV’s Video Visionary Award), Duran Duran is delighted to today announce that multi-platinum British artist Seal has been added to eight of their eleven upcoming November / December arena shows in the UK. London-based Ukrainian newcomers the Bloom Twins, will open on all dates.

Seal, whose new album, 7, was released on November 6 (Warner Bros Records) to both fan and critical acclaim, will join the tour in Cardiff on November 30 and continue through until the run ends in Liverpool on December 12 (excluding Bournemouth).

Duran Duran, who are currently in rehearsals for the Paper Gods British tour, were waiting to announce this exciting bill on BBC TV this morning. Seal has sold 30 million albums and his addition to their dates in the wake of the release of his new record (which sees him reunited with producer Trevor Horn), will make this one of the most anticipated tours of 2015.

Speaking about this earlier today, singer Simon Le Bon said “We have admired Seal and enjoyed the wonderful music he makes for many years. It was only a matter of time before before we went on the road together. We are over the moon, it is a great bill.”

30 Motorpoint Arena Cardiff
