Duran Duran at the Eden Project, near to our hotel and restaurant in Fowey

The pop group Duran Duran are to appear at the concert at Cornwall's Eden Project for BBC Music Day on Friday June 3. The Eden Project hosts a number of fantastic events throughout the year and is close to our luxury hotel and restaurant in Fowey.

The band will be performing hits from their four-decade career as well as tracks from their newest album Paper Gods.

BBC Radio 2 will broadcast the concert live and highlights from the whole concert will be shown on BBC One on Sunday June 5.

The gig at Eden will follow a day of musical events across the UK. Both amateur and professional musicians alike are being encouraged to take part in the event and Duran Duran are acting as ambassadors for the event.

The band said in a statement: "We're really proud to be ambassadors for BBC Music Day and to bring the Paper Gods tour to the stunning surroundings of the Eden Project. We've wanted to play there for many years.

"We love the idea of BBC Music Day, it's a fantastic way to bring people together across the country and to promote live music. So, whether it's taking part in one of the events or watching or listening to the artists who are part of this year's celebration, we hope everyone gets involved."

BBC Music Day was launched last year and was billed as a "UK-wide celebration of sound." Last year events included a music relay along Hadrian's Wall and the Manic Street Preachers performing to 10,000 people at Cardiff Castle.

Full details of the 2016 programme will be announced in the coming weeks, and tickets for Duran Duran are already on sale.
