Blondie Announces Europe Tour

Blondie announce tour dates for UK, Ireland, France, Holland and Belgium

When Blondie played Hop Farm in 2010 (which we gave away a load of free tickets for) we collectively realised that we all still really fancied Debbie Harrie and her voice was still ferociously stunning. The band was tight and invigorating as well, a show well worth spending your hard-earned cheddar on.

If you were unfortunate enough to miss out on that halcyon afternoon then fear not, Blondie are returning to these lands in June and July.

So far, shows have been confirmed in the UK, Ireland, France, Belgium and Holland.

The UK leg is notable for the inclusion of seven shows in forests, including Sherwood Pines, Thetford Forest, Cannock Chase Forest and more. These wildlife based shows will also feature support from The Lightening Seeds.
