Duran Duran - SA tour cancelled
Hunta Live regretfully announced today that Duran Duran’s Tour to South Africa has been cancelled due to disappointing sales at the box office.
“We have tried to negotiate a reduced number of shows in South Africa with the Band’s management in order to go ahead with the Tour as planned, but sadly could not reach an agreement. This is the first tour Hunta Live has ever had to cancel – and after a great year, it is a big disappointment for us too. We apologise to all the fans for any inconvenience caused due to the short notice but would like to assure them that we are doing everything we can from our side to secure dates for next year to bring the Super Group that is Duran Duran to South Africa”, says Sam Hendrikse, CEO of Hunta Live.
All ticket holders can get a full refund from any Computicket outlet on their tickets purchased for Duran Duran.
Tour updates to be announced in the press.

As long as bands like this from decades ago continue to HEADLINE a concert, this might occur yet again. Pleased to see the SA public aren't gullible and falling over themselves in excitement simply because it's an international act. Maybe in the 90's yes, but most are more discerning now. Just because I was a big fan of Duran Duran when I was a teenager does not in any mean I have interest now - I've grown up. They've done NOTHING particulary of note in decades. It was an age gone by, let them rest in peace. Reminiscing only goes so far!

all I forecast..all has come to fruition…
negativity has now become reality..all those moo cows…just being negative..oh yer, surreee…
no label – that will NEVER happen.
no marketing – self promote, lol, yer right, good luck. cant market without money guys. apart from a few token tv shows here and there.
social media marketing is useless for this band – most fans dont even know what this “twitterbook” thing is , lol.
no fans beyond the tiny slobbering fan base, (and even those soccer mums are getting tired of hearing rio over and over)
fans who dont even use itunes.
AYNIN – more ho-hum, middle of the road, christian sounding music – with zero heart, zero balls – who apart from the enabling 5,000 strong soccer mum fanbase forgive their odious, sub par output.
= NO CHANCE WITH THIS “ALBUM”.
If this thing sells more than 20 thousands copies globally il eat my poop.

Bring groups to South Africa that the youth actually want to watch and you will have ticket sales - not rocket science guys.

The ticket was to expensive, the seats that other performers would normally charge R250, they charged R500.
