David Lynch to Direct Duran Duran in Live Webcast

Posted March 17th, 2011 by eric

In an unlikely pairing, David Lynch, the acclaimed director of Eraserehead, Blue Velvet, and Mulholland Drive will join forces with Duran Duran, helming the controls for a live webcast of the band’s concert on March 23rd at 10pm to be held at the Mayan Theater in Los Angeles. The concert will be streamed via Duran Duran’s YouTube channel. Lynch, who is notorious for baffling both critics and fans with his imagery and unorthodox direction, has issued a statement explaining that the idea “is to try and create, on the fly, layers of images permeating Duran Duran on stage, a world of experimentation and hopefully some happy accidents.” The concert follows the physical release of Duran Duran’s Mark Ronson produced 13th studio album, All You Need Is Now, by one day.
