Duran Duran flew 300 drones above NASA at moon landing anniversary gig

Duran Duran usually focuses on "Planet Earth," but they looked to the skies on Tuesday night when they celebrated the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing at a special concert for NASA.

The new wave pioneers blasted off at Florida's Kennedy Space Center, in front of an invitation-only audience that included all of the space program's surviving astronauts. They pulled out all the stops for the concert, bringing along a 40-piece choir and 300 drones that flew above the event -- which Nick Rhodes says was the toughest part to arrange.

Nick tells Britain's NME, "There’s all kinds of security issues, because NASA don’t usually allow anything to fly over their airspace. This concert is clearly something that’ll only happen once in our lifetime, so we wanted to make it special.”
