To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the historic moon landing, Duran Duran will perform at the Rocket Garden at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex on July 16.

The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and the Aldrin Family Foundation announced that the iconic British band will play a unique show amidst the spectacular Rocket Garden with an Intel Drone Light Show Performance by Studio Drift.

Tickets for the performance are on sale now at the Kennedy Space Center's website.

"I was one of those kids watching in complete amazement on TV as the Lunar Module touched down, and Neil Armstrong took his first steps on the Moon," said Duran Duran co-founder Nick Rhodes. "I remember rushing outside immediately after the broadcast to just stare up into the night sky. It was surreal and awe inspiring - science fiction unfolding before us."

"Around a decade later, we formed the band and released our first single Planet Earth," he added. "The indelible impact of the Moon landing was still one of our main sources of inspiration."
