For the first time ever, Duran Duran’s concert film directed by David Lynch is hitting over 300 theaters nationwide for a one-night-only special event on Wednesday, Sept. 10th.

According to Rolling Stone, Duran Duran Unstaged showcases the acclaimed British rock band’s March 23, 2011 concert at the Mayan Theatre in Los Angeles on the band’s All You Need Is Now album and world tour. The film features not only all four original members – Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor and Roger Taylor – but special guest performances by Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance), Beth Ditto (Gossip), Kelis and long-time collaborator, Mark Ronson.

The film features an 18-song set with all the group’s beloved hits including “Hungry Like the Wolf”, “A View to Kill”, “Ordinary World” and “Rio.” And with award-winning filmmaker David Lynch behind the director’s chair, you know it will be a stunning visionary experience not to miss.

“We are all very proud to have worked in partnership with the legendary David Lynch on this project. It was a tremendously rewarding and exhilarating experience,” lead singer Simon LeBon said in a statement.

“David is a visionary artist, his work is always surprising and beautifully strange – so it was a surreal dream collaboration for us to work with him and to become the subjects of one of his films,” keyboardist Nick Rhodes added.

Tickets for this special event go on sale Friday, Aug. 15th on screenvision.com. Check out the trailer for the event below.
