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'.
Undeniably one of the most trailblazing and influential bands of our time, Blondie is pioneering frontwoman/songwriter Debbie Harry, guitarist/conceptual mastermind Chris Stein and powerhouse drummer Clem Burke, along with now long standing band mates bassist Leigh Foxx, guitarist Tommy Kessler and keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen.
For the last four decades, Blondie has become and still remains a true global icon; one whose influence both shaped and continues to inform the worlds of music, fashion and art. From an irreverent Lower East Side punk outfit to bona fide international ambassadors of New York cool, Blondie will forever be synonymous with that punk spirit that lives somewhere in all of us.
Their chart- topping success, fearless spirit and rare longevity led to an induction into the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2006 and more than 40 million albums sold worldwide to date.
Blondie tour dates
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, with Ian Broudie moving largely into production and releasing some solo records of his own. The band reformed in 2006 and since then things have been 'marvellous', with festival and gig goers having 'the life of riley' re-living the classic hits. Oh 'lucky you'!
