They tour announcement comes alongside new album details.
Legendary American rock band Blondie will be back in the UK this November for what will be a perfect finish to a landmark year for the music icons. The tour will kick off at Manchester’s O2 Apollo on 11 November, before arriving in Birmingham and Glasgow and finishing at South London’s O2 Academy Brixton on 16 November.
In celebration of their 11th studio album Pollinator the band played London’s iconic Roundhouse for a triumphant show in May, receiving an ecstatic reception from fans and critics alike.
Pollinator soared to No.4 in the UK charts, making it the group’s first Top 5 entry in over 18 years. And they are proving that the Blondie live show is an still an experience in itself, with the classic hits like Heart Of Glass, Atomic, Tide Is High, Maria, Sunday Girl, Rapture and Call Me naturally blending with Pollinator’s treasure chest of new songs.
Just last weekend the band played at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park as main support to Phil Collins and also headlined at the Eden Project in Cornwall on earlier in June, where they launched their ‘BEE Connected’ campaign, using Pollinator to raise awareness of the decline of the bee population.
Here are those new tour dates:
11 November – O2 Apollo, Manchester
13 November – Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham
14 November – SSE Hydro, Glasgow
16 November – O2 Academy Brixton, London
