Duran Duran are bringing their Paper Gods tour to Calgary, playing the Scotiabank Saddledome on August 30.

The tour will see the renowned British band hit the road to promote their 14th studio album, produced by music makers Mark Ronson and Mr. Hudson. Supporting will be legendary American disco band CHIC, of Le Freak fame.

“Their unrivalled vision and keen interest in the ever-changing world around us have made them a truly global force to be reckoned with, and a group of unique and everlasting appeal,” said a press release from concert organizers Live Nation.
