The Forestry Commission's Forest Live: Blondie + Lightning Seeds
Blondie have confirmed a very special tour of the nation's woodlands next summer performing their hits as part of the Forestry Commission's annual concert series Forest Live.
Blondie emerged from New York's celebrated new wave scene producing innovative music with their rock/disco, reggae and hip-hop influenced songs. Fronted by pop icon Deborah Harry, their ground-breaking material brought them a stash of hit singles such as 'Denis', '(I'm Always Touched by Your) Presence Dear', 'Picture This', 'Dreaming', 'Union City Blue' and 'Rapture'. Few acts can match their 20 year span of No 1's from 'Heart Of Glass', 'Sunday Girl', 'Atomic', 'Call Me', 'The Tide Is High' to 'Maria'. Their singles success complemented by 40 million+ album sales that include classic recordings like 'Plastic Letters', 'Parallel Lines' and 'Eat to The Beat' has ensured worldwide superstar status for this pioneering band.
Special guest each evening will be The Lightning Seeds performing an acoustic set of their perfect pop songs like 'Pure', 'Lucky You' and 'Change'.
Blondie formed in 1974 and had a string of hits through the 70s and 80s as the instigators of the New York side of the new wave punk scene. Debbie Harry went on to pursue a successful solo career, with the hit 'I Want That Man' in 1989, and the band reformed in 1999, having No. 1 single success with 'Maria'.

Having secured a reputation as one of the most prominent bands of the 1990s, the Lightning Seeds took an 'elongated break' at the end of the decade, Ian Broudie moving largely into production and releasing some solo records of his own. 2006 marks the band's reformation, and festival goers will be re-living the glorious days of 'Jollification' without a shred of disappointment.
