Simon Le Bon looked almost unrecognisable as he holidayed in Italy with his wife.
The Duran Duran singer looked dramatically different as he enjoyed sun soaked Italy with his wife, model Yasmin Le Bon.
The 62-year-old star wore a turquoise green Run DMC t-shirt as he went clothes shopping with his partner, trying on a suit jacket, whilst Yasmin kept it casual in a black vest top and had her hair tied up in the summer heat in Italy.
The 80s pop sensation was later seen heading to dinner with his wife Yasmin and their friends in the beautiful holiday destination of Portofino.
He sipped on a cocktail as the group sampled the delightful food at the restaurant.
On the music front, Duran Duran are set to release a new album FUTURE PAST later this year, and he admits the Covid pandemic really delayed their plans to put out an LP last year.
Speaking on Billboard’s Pop Shop Podcast, he said: “I knew it was a long time. And obviously the big reason it took such a long time was the emergence of COVID-19. A global pandemic and the ensuing lockdown.
“And how that affected, not just our working schedules, but also life in general, and one’s ability to have… really, have music that could make any kind of an impact.
“We thoroughly intended to get this record out in 2020, but everything suddenly shut down. And then we thought, hang on, let’s not rush this. We don’t know what’s going to happen.
“And it would be very easy for the album to go out there and become completely overlooked or just disappear in comparison with the other things that are happening in the world. So we thought, we’ll just hang on for a minute.”
Simon isn’t worried that the band have yet to be inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame.
“If they want us, they’ll have us. If they don’t, they don’t. I’m not waiting with bated breath,” he explained to Vulture.
“There’s life to get on with. We have all these kinds of official recognitions that are good and very nice, but one shouldn’t base their self-esteem on whether you’re included or not, because there are many, many other ways of judging one’s success.
“Notably, the fact that you’ve got an audience who want to hear your music, to me, is a bit more significant. We’re looking at doing an arena tour next summer in America. That’s a big deal for us. That means that there’s a lot of confidence in us playing to a big audience.”
