Blondie have announced a West Country date for the summer with an appearance at Westonbirt Arboretum as part of Forestry Commission Live Music, where bands perform in beautiful woodland locations around the country.
One of the most significant bands of the popular music era, Blondie emerged from New York's celebrated new wave scene producing innovative music and scoring major hits worldwide with rock/disco, reggae and hip-hop songs.
Fronted by the iconic Debbie Harry, their groundbreaking material brought them a stash of hit singles including 'Denis', 'Picture This', 'Rapture', 'Sunday Girl' and 'Hanging On The Telephone'.
Few acts can match their 20 year span of No 1 hits that includes 'Heart Of Glass', 'Atomic', 'Call Me', 'The Tide Is High' and 'Maria'. Classic recordings like 'Plastic Letters', 'Parallel Lines' and 'Eat to The Beat' have contributed to their 40 million + album sales to date.
Blondie will release a new album, their first in six years, this spring.
Blondie will be performing at: Westonbirt Arboretum, Nr Tetbury, Gloucestershire, Sunday 20 June.
