After the trophies, come the parties – and on Emmy night Sept. 16, Entertainment Tonight and PEOPLE will be ready for the stars at their 11th annual bash – headlined by Duran Duran.
Band member Nick Rhodes told ET the band will play “all your favorite songs from our last three decades of music.”
Already, Kate Walsh, James Gandolfini and Joey Fatone have RSVP’d for the invitation-only post-awards party at Los Angeles’s Walt Disney Concert Hall, where guests will be able to indulge in some personal pampering. Maybelline New York/Garnier Beauty Bar will offer free consultations and 100% Colombian Iced Coffee will be served in the outdoor space.
Inside, KCRW DJ Jason Bentley, known for breaking Gnarls Barkley and the Chemical Brothers, will play a live set in addition to Duran Duran’s performance.
Of course, no Emmy party would be complete without opportunities to watch nominated shows. In the LG Lounge, guests can see their favorite nominees on the VX9400 Mobile TV phone, while the live Emmy telecast will be broadcast on plasma screens.
Even the invitation to the bash came luxe. The message by YESDESIGNGROUP came printed on cherry wood veneer, brushed aluminum and charcoal with foil metallic paper, and was enclosed in a 5-in.-square Lucite cube.
For TV fans watching the show at home, PEOPLE.com will offer live, up-to-the-minute coverage, while the next day they can get the scoop on the best dressed stars and all the afterparty action. (Catch up on last year’s happenings here.)
