BLONDIE, X ANNOUNCE FALL 2013 US TOUR

BLONDIE, X ANNOUNCE FALL 2013 US TOUR

New York rock and roll legends Blondie are heading back out on the road this fall. Many of the band’s recent tours have seen the band sharing the stage with other bands of similar vintage such as Cheap Trick, B-52′s,Devo and Pat Benatar. This time out, they are bringing along LA punk pioneers X.

The ‘No Principals’ tour kicks off on Sept. 5 in Hampton Beach, N.H., and winds up a month later in New York City. As a special bonus for ticket buyers, every ticket purchased for the tour will include five exclusive new Blondie tracks for download from their forthcoming album, which is set for release later this year. Blondie will mark their 40th anniversary in 2014. The group still features founding members Clem Burke, Chris Stein and, of course, Debbie Harry.

X, who will release a deluxe vinyl box set this fall, still has their original lineup intact. The box will contain the band’s first four classic LP’s and will also include a special booklet with a forward by band’s producer, the late Ray Manzarek of the Doors.
