Girl Power – Blondie and Garbage Summer Tour

“In these trying times, we need some fun”, with these words Deborah Harry announced a throwback tour for the ages with Blondie and Garbage.  The “Rage and Rapture Tour” will be kicking off on the 5th of July in Saratoga, California. Two of the most dynamic female frontwomen of all-time will be sharing the stage for twenty-two scheduled shows (at this moment) in smaller, more intimate venues.   Blondie will be supporting their upcoming 11th album, Pollinator, which features the likes of Sia, Charli XCX, The Strokes, Laurie Anderson, and Blood Orange contributing to the album.  The first single “Fun” is a clear return to Blondie’s glory days with an old school twist of disco, New Wave, and girl group pop.   The one and only, Joan Jett, duets on a track called “Doom Or Destiny”.    @BlondieOfficial  @Garbage

“FUN (New)” – Blondie

Shirley Manson and Garbage have a new book coming out this summer, “This Is The Noise That Keeps Me Awake”.  We can expect the iconic Alt/Rock band to bring out their huge hits like “Only Happens When It Rains”, “Bad Boyfriend”, and “Stupid Girl” on this landmark tour.   Opening for Blondie and Garbage on the front half of the tour will be John Doe and Exene Cervenka from the 70’s L.A. punk band, X.    The back half of the tour will feature some new blood with Deap Vally, a bad ass female rock duo from L.A. who tweeted “Holy sh*t!!!! We’re@goig on tour with @garbage and @BlondieOfficial!!!!   (@DeapVally)
