Focus shifts from movies to music at Cannes as Duran Duran performs at AIDS awareness benefit

CANNES, France — The Cannes Film Festival isn’t all about movies.

In the wee hours of Saturday morning, the focus shifted to music
as Duran Duran stole the spotlight for a good cause. The band took time
out from touring and promoting their latest album, “All You Need is
Now,” to rock onstage at a party partly sponsored by the (RED)
organization to bring awareness to the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

“We feel that we help out wherever we can,” lead singer Simon
LeBon said. “The (RED) organization is a very fine organization indeed.
... It seemed like a good thing for us to do.”

The party was held
at the exclusive VIP room and was hosted by Belvedere and (RED), which
have teamed up and created a special addition bottle aimed at raising
money to help fight HIV and AIDS.

Duran Duran has an emotional attachment to Cannes as one of their earlier records was made in the region.

“When we came to record our third album, we rented a big chateau just
outside of Cannes in the mountains and spent all of our time writing,
recording and coming down here to party in the evening, so great
memories, really great memories of this town,” said drummer Roger
Taylor.
