Celebrating over 30 years of Blondie and their induction into the rock n roll hall of fame in 2006, do not miss this explosive tribute!
No other female fronted band has ever beaten Blondie with their string of hits and run of success. Blondie had six UK number one singles, two UK number one albums and six top ten albums, and Heart Of Glass alone sold over a million copies! Few acts can match their 20 year span of number one hits.
Blondie emerged as the great pop icons of the late ’70s new wave punk scene by defying easy categorisation. They scored their first major hits with reggae, rock/disco and hip-hop songs. They wrote great rock hooks and brilliant ironic lyrics. They had the hippest clothes and the coolest hair, blonde bombshell Debbie went from the pages of Punk magazine to being on the cover of just about every mainstream publication on the news-stands! 2008 was the 30th Anniversary of the fantastic album Parallel Lines and saw Blondie performing a world tour including major UK sold out dates. Again, 2010 saw them coming back to the UK again on tour.
Cardiff based Atomic Blondie, now also hotly tipped as one of the UK’s leading Blondie tribute bands, have performed all over the UK and Europe and has also had the pleasure of featuring on tour with the legendary Slade and Roy Wood on a regular basis, plus performances with Showaddywaddy, Dr & The Medics and Bad Manners! Our Debz has also had the pleasure of performing for top musician and member of Yes Rick Wakeman plus an event for the cast of BBC 1’s Eastenders (to name a few!).
The Band consists of dedicated professional musicians all with years of experience. May 2010 saw them play Europe’s biggest tribute festival where they were the only female fronted tribute to play the main stage over the three day event – this followed with them appearing in The Sun newspaper on the coverage of the event. From November 2010 to present Atomic Blondie’s photo is also being used in major tabloid newspapers for advertising of a major hotel chain (including The Daily Mail and Express).
The show features all the classic hits plus trademark Debbie Harry costumes, including the famous ‘Bin Liner Outfit’ and ‘Vulture Tee’ as seen in the video for Atomic. The band have studied Blondie in great detail to recreate the next best thing and make their tribute as authentic as possible. Including the hits Heart of Glass, Sunday Girl, Maria, Tide is High, Rapture, Hanging on the Telephone, Denis, Dreaming, Rip Her to Shreds, One Way or Another and many more, including recent versions from Blondie’s ‘Live By Request’ TV Show in the USA. Atomic Blondie are a combination of great experienced top-class professional musicians and a stunning experienced professional vocalist.
“Electric!” – Sir Owen Gee, Kiss FM
“I recently visited your web site and must tell you that I am very impressed with the performances from you and the guys. Your vocals, Deb-style presentation, the music, the arrangements… everything, are most impressive and spot-on.” – The Blondie Review (USA)
