Duran Duran have announced that a docu-concert film, titled A Hollywood High, will be released in theaters on November 3.
The 75-minute documentary captures the new wave band performing live on a rooftop in Los Angeles, alongside interviews and archival footage that tells the story of their long-time relationship with the city.
“For our first US show in several years we wanted to do something really special and intimate,” said Nick Rhodes. “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,” added the Duran Duran keyboardist.
“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,” said bassist John Taylor.
A Hollywood High is directed by Gavin Elder, Vincent Adam Paul and George Scott. Lastman Media and Magus Entertainment are executive producers. The film is being distributed and released theatrically in cinemas around the world by Abramorama.
The members of Duran Duran will attend a special premiere for the film at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on October 27. A London premiere will follow at the Vue West End, in Leicester Square, on November 1.
