Blondie postpones November UK tour until 2022, garbage dump bill
Blondie has postponed her 10-date Against The Odds tour of the UK, rescheduling concerts for April / May 2022.
The New York New Wave legends were scheduled to start touring in Liverpool on November 6, but will now kick off their UK return to Glasgow on April 22, 2022.
Due to scheduling conflicts, Garbage will no longer be able to accompany Debbie Harry’s group on re-booked dates: former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr will participate instead.
“It’s a disappointment to have to postpone our UK tour until April 2022,” Blondie drummer Clem Burke said. “We will now be joined by our special guest and friend Johnny Marr. We are happy to continue our relationship with Johnny which started with his contribution to our latest album Pollinator. I can’t wait to see all of our UK fans in the spring.
Debbie Harry adds: “Having collaborated with Johnny on Blondie’s latest album, Pollinator, and with plans for a new collaboration on our next album, we look forward to a long-awaited return to the UK, and even better, to sharing the stage with the inspiring musical influence that is Johnny Marr.
“I am so excited to be dating Blondie,” says Marr, “to hear these classic songs every night and to be in the presence of 21st century heroes.”
The revised Against The Odds dates for spring 2022 are:
April 22: SSE Hydro, Glasgow
April 24: Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff
April 26: O2 Arena, London
