On May 21st, DuranDuranMusic.com sent an announcement with this comment from Simon Le Bon:
"I'm at home, in England, finishing up the new album and getting ready for the summer shows we are going to be doing, and at the top of my list is the Fan Community concert in New York City. It has always been something we've wanted to do, so we're really looking forward to it and can't wait to play a proper show on a New York stage again.
"A couple of weeks ago we asked you to choose a song for us to play on the 17th at the Hammerstein Ballroom. Well the votes are now in and you've chosen what you'd like to hear. We have the results, but you'll have to come to the show to hear what it is - it's a surprise for all of you. Thanks for giving us the chance to do this. See you on June 17th." -- Simon LeBon
