Duran Duran Set to Invade SecondLife
Eighties icons Duran Duran are primed to become the first major pop act to have a presence inside of Second Life.
According to their official Web site, John Taylor, Simon Le Bon, Roger Taylor, Nick Rhodes and Andy Taylor have commissioned a set of custom avatars that they plan to use to perform concerts and schedule media appearances that mirror their real world activities.
DD keyboardist Nick Rhodes sees endless possibilities in Second Life: "our community will be able to help develop the island into a fully functional, futuristic utopia, where you can never be quite sure what to expect."
The quintet is expected to make their virtual debut later this month.
