Blondie Tickets for Sale

Blondie emerged as the great pop band of the New York New Wave Punk scene. But they always resisted categorization because they did the music they loved. They scored the first major reggae, rock/disco and hip hop hits. They wrote great rock hooks and brilliant ironic lyrics. They had the hippest clothes and the coolest hair. Debbie went from the cover of Punk magazine to being on the cover of just about every magazine.

The original BLONDIE was formed in 1974 by art student/guitarist Chris Stein and ex-fokie, ex-Max's Kansas City waitress and Playboy bunny, vocalist Debbie Harry. Drummer Clem Burke and keyboard player Jimmy Destri joined in 1975. The band played in New York downtown circuit, CBGB's, Max's Kansas City and Mothers. They collected a big following and in 1976 they recorded their first album BLONDIE. It was released in 1977 and was well received. After a successful stint in L.A., the band toured in support of Iggy Pop and David Bowie.

The single "Picture This" made #12 in the UK and the follow-up "Hanging on the Telephone" hit #5. At the end of the year Debbie made her first film, Union City. In 1979 BLONDIE had their first #1 US hit with "Heart Of Glass" which also sold over a million copies in the UK. The album sold over 20 million copies worldwide. The fourth single from Parallel Lines, "Sunday Girl" also hit #1 in the UK. In September 1979 the band's fourth album "Eat To The Beat" was released, along with the first ever album length video. Before the year's end BLONDIE had continued their chart presence in the UK with the #2 hit "Dreaming."In February 1980 they hit #1 in England again with "Atomic." Two months later they hit #1 in the US a second time with "Call Me," from the film American Gigolo.

The fifth BLONDIE album, Autoamerican was released in January and the first single "The Tide Is High" made #1 in the UK. The first reggae tinged hit, it was #1 in the U.S. by March. In August Debbie released her first solo album, "Koo Koo," produced by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards of Chic and featuring a cover by H.R. Giger, the Academy Award winning sci-fi artist who created the Alien creature.

By 1982 there was dissension in the band, but they still managed to produce another album The Hunter. The single "Island of Lost Souls" was the band's last US hit. In the meantime Chris was felled by a rare and often fatal genetic disease, and the band fell apart. The band soon reunited and No Exit, the seventh Blondie studio album, was produced by Craig Leon, who had actually produced the band's first single, X-Offender, and worked on the first album assisting producer Richard Gottherer. Blondie, America's greatest pop band, is back on the scene with an amazing new album "The Curse of Blondie."
