Another victim of the Broadway strike: Duran Duran’s Red Carpet Massacre at the Barrymore theater. Minutes ago, the band’s management, Magus Entertainment, confirmed to EW.com that the band’s three remaining shows, tonight, Monday, and Tuesday, will not go on – at the Barrymore, at least – due to the striking Local One IATSE stagehands.
However, band insiders report that the group is actively trying to find another venue for Monday and Tuesday’s shows. Tonight’s performance, which was to be played before a sold-out audience of approximately 1,100 fans, has been officially canceled. Many have flown in from around the country and the world to see the
group’s three-act concert, which was meant to have a 10-night run on the Great White Way, leading up to the release of their 12th studio album, Red Carpet Massacre (on sale Tuesday). —Lori Majewski
