When British band and '80s new wave sensation Duran Duran performs Saturday night in St. Paul they will be featuring a North Dakota native as a touring member.

The band behind singles like "Hungry Like the Wolf" and "Ordinary World" were in a bind after keyboardist Nick Rhodes needed to make an emergency trip to the United Kingdom for family reasons.

The band said Amanda Warner, who performs under the name MNDR, would play keyboard for the third U.S. leg of their "Paper Gods" tour.

"Happy to announce I will be playing keys with the legendary @duranduran for their U.S. tour beginning tomorrow," she said on her Instagram.

Several years ago MNDR was an opener for Duran Duran during their last U.S. tour.

Tickets are still available for the show at the Xcel Energy Center on Saturday night.

If you want a taste of the experience, MNDR posted a video of her playing keys to 75,000 people in Quebec City.

"This is the largest crowd I have ever played for a probably ever will play for," she said in a Facebook post. "Thank you so much Duran Duran and all of the Duran Duran fans!"
