Blondie, one of the most influential bands to emerge from New York’s punk scene, will play Birmingham next autumn as part of a 10-date UK tour, their first in four years.

Iconic frontwoman/songwriter Debbie Harry, guitarist/conceptual mastermind Chris Stein and powerhouse drummer Clem Burke will be joined by longstanding band mates bassist Leigh Foxx, guitarist Tommy Kessler and keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen.

The band will be accompanied on the tour by Garbage, led by quintessential rocker Shirley Manson, who was invited to induct Blondie into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2006.

Commenting on the tour, Debbie Harry said: “Next year's UK tour is more meaningful to me perhaps than the very first time Blondie played there in the mid-'70s. The UK has always been a special place to us, and being able to come back to perform there after sitting out most of 2020 is very exciting.”

Blondie play Utilita Arena Birmingham on 8 November 2021. Tickets go on sale at 10am on 23 October here
