Duran Duran sues its Chicago fan club

CHICAGO (AP) - Popular 1980s band Duran Duran is suing its own fan club.

The group known for hits like "Notorious" and "Hungry Like the Wolf" accuses the suburban Chicago-based club of breaching contract by not paying the band promised revenue.

The Chicago Sun-Times (http://bit.ly/1sRxoJ8 ) reports that Duran Duran's lawsuit names Glenview-based Worldwide Fan Clubs, Inc. as the defendant. The suit was filed in Cook County Circuit Court this week.

It says the band entered a 2010 contract allowing the club to collect memberships and sell merchandise. The contract also allegedly stipulates Duran Duran would get 75 percent of the profits.

Someone who answered the phone Wednesday at the Glenview office of Worldwide Fan Clubs said the company had no comment.
