Last week new wave legends Blondie returned to our playlists with “Fun”, a sweet new disco-pop jam that proved there’s a lot left in the ol’ proverbial tank. With a new record, Pollinator, out May 5 via BMG, Blondie have now announced they will be heading out on a co-headlining summer North American tour with Garbage dubbed Rage And Rapture.
Debbie Harry and Shirley Manson joining forces?
Scrap the name and just call it the BAMF tour.
The tour kicks off July 5 in Saratoga, California, and wraps August 12 in Dallas, Texas. Relevant to our New England interests is a pitch-perfect July 30 date at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion in Boston, where Los Angeles duo Deap Vally will be providing opening duties. Tickets for the entire tour go on sale next Friday (February 17) at 10 a.m. local time.
Check out the full dates below. Featured Manson photo by Matthew Shelter for Vanyaland, snapped at Garbage’s 2015 stop at the Orpheum Theatre for their 20 Years Queer tour.
