Duran Duran will headline the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in their home city of Birmingham next week, organisers have announced.



The 80s pop group will perform on the same bill as fellow local musician Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO).

Singer Simon Le Bon said he was “honoured” to play the homecoming gig.

Peaky Blinders director Steven Knight will executive produce the event, which will be broadcast live on the BBC.

Duran Duran formed in Birmingham in 1978 and went on to become leading figures of the new romantic scene with hits like Hungry Like the Wolf, Girls on Film and Rio.
