Get ready for a full blast of rock 'n' roll as two of music’s most iconic artists, the wondrous Blondie and the bewitching Cyndi Lauper will join forces to tear up arenas in Sydney and Melbourne in April next year.
“Blondie were the true trailblazers of the New York City new wave and punk scenes. As a young artist, they had such a big impact on me. I just thought that Debbie was so cool. She is still a hero of mine. I’m so excited to do this tour of Australia with them. We are going to have a blast!” – Cyndi Lauper
“You can't miss this show. The b*tches are coming back to make it happen in Australia just like they do it everywhere. All the songs and music you want to hear from us and much much more..We're looking to have the best tour in OZ ever!” - Debbie Harry
Cyndi Lauper and Blondie have both been basking in great success here for four decades, with a catalogue of timeless hits under their belts that are still popular today. Both Cyndi and Debbie Harry have always escaped the usual clichés of women in rock and are unquestionably two of the most important and influential women to have walked the world of music. The two New York natives are thrilled to be touring together.
Selling more than 40 million albums worldwide and becoming Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame inductees, Blondie quickly became music, style and pop culture icons after breaking into the late 70’s New York punk scene. They scored hits with reggae, rock/disco, hip hop and pop songs bursting with great hooks and brilliant, ironic lyrics. ‘Heart Of Glass’ was Blondie’s first US #1 in 1978 opening the floodgates to a run of 14 Top Ten US hits including ‘The Tide Is High’, ‘Call Me’, ‘Rapture’, ‘Picture This’, ‘Hanging On The Telephone’, ‘Union City Blue’ and ‘Atomic’, racking up a phenomenal five US and five UK number one singles.
Fans will be thrilled to learn that Blondie – including founding members Debbie Harry, guitarist/song-writing partner Chris Stein and drummer Clem Burke, along with the rest of the band have just completed a new as yet untitled album to be released in March 2017.
It's been thirty-three years and fifty million album sales since her 1983 debut solo album She’s So Unusual and its hits ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’, ‘Time After Time’, ‘She Bop’ and ‘All Through The Night’, the ever-versatile Cyndi Lauper, one of only 20 people to earn Emmy, Grammy, and Tony awards, remains unstoppable. Her resplendent musical journey took an unexpected southern turn on her acclaimed 11th studio album Detour released in May this year, where Cyndi sings her own version of a dozen classic country songs. On Detour the unpredictable siren proves once again that her unique voice can bring to life any genre of music.
With both artists greatly loved by Australian fans, there's no doubt that the tour will be one of the concert highlights of 2017! Don't miss out!
