**This just in: My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way + The Gossip's Beth Ditto to join UNSTAGED performance!
Gerard said: "It's a huge honor. Growing up and watching MTV, their music, much like their visuals, turned the color up on everything which inspires me to this day. I remember them saying they wanted to be the band dancing when the bomb goes off. I'd like to be at that party."
Duran Duran are excited to confirm special guests Mark Ronson + Kelis at the American Express UNSTAGED Event on March 23rd live from LA.
Singer Simon Le Bon said today: "It really means a lot to the band that both Kelis and Mark Ronson are able to join us for this show. Mark is making an Herculean effort to be here - flying in specially for the night - which is typical of his generosity and the enormous support he has shown us on the ALL YOU NEED IS NOW project throughout. As we get closer to Wednesday our excitement is building daily. It's going to be a really incredible week for us with the release of the album - and the start of our world tour. Having our friends with us on stage will make it an even bigger celebration."
In response, Ronson said "How could I have missed this? Playing live with one of my favourite bands of all time and being a part of this concert film with David Lynch. It's a true honour."
