Cape Canaveral, FL (CelebrityAccess) — New wave legends Duran Duran performed at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex this week as part of a special event to mark the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11’s mission to the Moon.

For the concert, Duran Duran collaborated with the noted visual artist duo Studio Drift, whose artwork Franchise Freedom was brought to life by hundreds of illuminated flying drones as the band performed their hit ’The Universe Alone’ together with a 40-piece choir and 16-piece orchestra.

Profits from the concert’s ticket sales benefited the Aldrin Family Foundation’s STEAM education programs.

“The indelible impact of the Moon landing has been one of Duran Duran’s main sources of inspiration. In the last half-century there have been very few events that have captured the world’s attention and united everyone in such a positive way. We are truly thrilled and honored to be a part of the 50-year celebration of the Apollo 11 mission, the performance tonight, at KSCVC where the launch took place,” said Duran Duran keyboardist and founding member Nick Rhodes.
