The band were presented with the Lord Mayor’s Award before their homecoming gig at the Utilita Arena in Birmingham city centre on Friday (5 May 2023).

The award was made in recognition of Duran Duran’s outstanding achievement and exceptional service to Birmingham and its people through inspirational and dedicated work as world-renowned musicians, writers, and producers of music, which has raised the city’s reputation for music and creativity.

Lord Mayor said: “The past weekend has been very busy with the Coronation and Great Birmingham Run, but it was great to kick it off by presenting a Lord Mayor’s Award to Simon, John, Roger, and Nick at their homecoming gig on Friday. Birmingham is very proud of these Wild Boys, as am I, for putting Birmingham on the international stage.”
