Duran Duran moves to Second Life, will gig there
Duran Duran have bought a virtual island in Second Life, a creative 3D multiplayer world where you can make sophisiticated objects and avatars. The band will perform live shows in-game:
"When the video revolution began we instantly saw the opportunity to experiment and explore a new form of expression to enhance the musical experience. Second Life is the future right now, offering endless possibilities for artists."
Rhodes said he hoped the Duran Duran community would help develop the island into a "fully functional, futuristic utopia".
He said the band was "thrilled to become citizens of Second Life".
