Blondie & The Pretenders for A Day on the Green

Blondie & The Pretenders have been announced to co-headline a November/December tour of ‘a day on the green' winery shows in all states plus theatre shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra.


Both The Pretenders and Blondie have enjoyed great success in Australia, fuelled by a stream of timeless Top Ten hits and the popularity of Chrissie Hynde and Debbie Harry. Both ladies are unquestionably two of the most important and influential women to have graced the stage.


Blondie emerged from the late 70's New York punk scene and quickly became music, style and pop culture icons selling more than 40 million albums. ‘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', ‘Rip her To Shreds', ‘Hanging On The Telephone', ‘Union City Blues' and ‘Atomic', racking up a phenomenal five US and five UK number one singles.


Debbie, founding member & song writing partner Chris Stein and long-time drummer Clem Burke have just completed their first new album in six years titled ‘Panic Of Girls', set for release later this year, and on June 8 commence a world tour in the UK.


The Pretenders, with hits like ‘Talk Of The Town', ‘Kid', ‘Back On The Chain Gang', ‘Don't Get Me Wrong', ‘Middle Of The Road', ‘Message Of Love', ‘ I'll Stand By You', ‘Stop Your Sobbing' and ‘Brass In Pocket', The Pretenders may have been rockin' for 30 years but their authenticity has never diminished.


As always ‘a day on the green' is pleased to showcase two Australian artists as support acts, Melbourne five-piece Little Red and Magic Dirt's Adalita.
