Israel First Stop for BLONDIE'S World Tour
Well dang! Who cares if Babs makes it to Israel when Blondie is coming??
Seriously, Blondie was at the CBGB with all the greats. It is easy to think of them as bubblegum because they hit the top 20--but the band seriously rocks.
I have been searching the internet for where you can get tickets--I can't find anything. If someone has a clue, please let me know.
Meanwhile, Blondie is going to be in Israel, it is the FIRST stop in the tour, and even at 62, I'm sure Blondie's Jewish lead singer, Debbie Harry can still rock with the best of them (a much better time than Babs, for sure!).
Here's a link for a youtube of her most popular hit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUG0GjdoGHE
Have fun! Wish I was home!!
Blondie to perform in Israel this summer
Debbie Harry's legendary rock band to arrive in Israel in July as part of world tour marking 30 years since release of its first album
American rock band Blondie is coming to Israel this summer, and will perform at the Raanana Park Amphitheater on July 3 as part of a tour marking 30 years since the band's first album, "Parallel Lines", was released.
Debbie Harry's legendary band is being brought to Israel by veteran producer Shuky Weiss, who is also behind the planned arrivals of other nostalgic figures to Israel this summer, including Morrissey, Siouxsie Sioux and Bjork.
The group, which gained fame in the late seventies and disbanded several years later, began its comeback about a decade ago. Five years ago the band released its album "The Curse of the Blondie" and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006.
Following the re-release of its first album, Harry (62) and her band launched a world tour that will begin in the US. Israel is scheduled to be Blondie's first stop in its European tour.
