HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Brace yourselves, children of the 80s: Duran Duran is coming to Honolulu.

The iconic band, whose hits include "Hungry Like a Wolf" and "Rio," will perform at the Neal Blaisdell Arena on July 16.

Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday.

The stop in Honolulu is part of a North American tour that kicks off next month.

The Oahu date was added Monday, along with dates in four other cities.

The group is promoting their 14th studio album, Paper Gods, released in September 2015.

Duran Duran dominated music charts in the 1980s and 90s, and still includes four of its five core members, including John Taylor on bass and Simon Le Bon on vocals.

Duran Duran said while the new tour is aimed at supporting its newest album, their shows will also include some classics.

"It's just more of a casual kind of Duran show," Taylor told the Desert Sun newspaper. "We're not really promoting anything, per se. It's just for fun because we love to play."
