Duran Duran Rocked the Rocket Garden with Massive Drone Show

In honor of the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11’s mission launch to the moon, Duran Duran performed in the Rocket Garden of the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex (KSCVC) on July 16, 2019. The band collaborated with renowned artist duo Studio Drift, whose artwork Franchise Freedom was brought to life by hundreds of Intel® Shooting Star drones as the band performed "The Universe Alone" accompanied by a 40-piece choir and 16-piece orchestra. Profits from the concert's ticket sales benefited the Aldrin Family Foundation’s STEAM education programs.

Studio Drift co-founder Ralph Nauta says, “The Apollo 11 Moon landing exemplifies what technology can do for humanity. We’re ready and excited for the next 50 years.” Watch the video of highlights from the drone show.
