Le Bon said: “It is going to be an extraordinary experience – and something we’ve never done before!

“Everyone in the band has a tremendous love for the island and over the years I have personally spent many summers there with friends and family – so it’s become somewhat of a home away from home for us.

“People often think of Ibiza as just a party island – which of course it can be – but there’s a side to it that we really hope our fans get to explore while they are there, that’s about the natural beauty of the place, the incredible food and the warmth of the people who live there year-round.

“Ushuaia, where we’re playing on the Sunday night, is one of the best open-air venues in the world with a massive stage, right on the water.

“Our set is going to be dancefloor-heavy – and after what we’ve all been through these past two years, we just can’t wait!”

Called Touch the Sunrise, the Duran Duran event will run from April 29 to May 2.
