Blondie playing US shows, some with The Damned
Blondie have announced three US shows, including two on the West Coast with fellow punk legends The Damned and one in New York (opener TBA). The NY show is at Long Island's Paramount on 4/14 and the West Coast shows are 5/17 at The Masonic in San Francisco and 5/18 at Humphreys in San Diego. Tickets for all three shows go on presale today (2/1) at 10 AM local time (password = AGAINSTALLODDS) and the general on-sale begins Friday (2/4) at 10 AM local.
Blondie also have upcoming UK dates and one in Mexico. All dates are listed below. Last year, Blondie unearthed their rare 1981 holiday single with Fab 5 Freddy, "Yuletide Throwdown," which was based around an early version of the same instrumental that Blondie ended up using for their new wave/hip hop classic "Rapture."
The Damned recently revealed that they'd be reuniting their original lineup for a UK tour (that was postponed to the fall), but it isn't 100% clear which lineup is playing the shows with Blondie.
