Blondie & Garbage Announce Co-Headlining Tour

Blondie were a band of fairly anonymous studio-rat dudes, all dressed in black, who played behind an enormously charismatic frontwoman and who cranked out a steady stream of effervescent new-wave hits during the ’70s and ’80s. Garbage, meanwhile, were a band of fairly anonymous studio-rat dudes, all dressed in black, who played behind an enormously charismatic frontwoman and who cranked out a steady stream of effervescent new-wave hits during the ’90s.

Both bands are still going strong; Garbage released their Strange Little Birds album last year, and Blondie will drop the new LP Pollinator this spring. And so it only makes sense that both groups will spend the summer touring North America together. X co-leaders John Doe and Exene Cervenka will headline the first half of the shows, while Deap Valley will lend support on the other half. This should be a fun night out! Check out the dates below.
