Blondie will be performing on YouTube Presents live on October 10, 2012 at 4pm EST in New York City. Blondie is also giving fans the chance to be a part of the live studio audience on their Facebook page.
Blondie and Devo are wrapping up their "Whip It To Shreds" tour, a U.S. co-headlining run of dates that kicked off September 7th and hitting 13 select cities before wrapping September 26th.
Blondie's 9th studio album Panic of Girls was released in 2011 on the band's own imprint exclusively via Amazon and was celebrated by the likes of New York Times, Spin, Billboard, USA Today, People, Entertainment Weekly, GQ, Marie Claire, Elle and Harper's Bazaar. Blondie received rave reviews during their sold-out North American tour and made two very special national TV performances on the TODAY Show and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to perform single "Mother," a nod to the legendary West 14th Street night club of the same name.
Panic of Girls is colored with inspirations from New York City's roiling melting pot and street-level pop culture, featuring new wave dance gems, songs sung in French and Spanish and a reggae cover are threaded together with a timeless pop sheen. Blondie was inducted into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame in 2006 and has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide.
Praise for Blondie & Panic of Girls:
"Harry, Stein and others tapped into a rich alchemical vein during those years in the Bowery lab. They located pop's sacred ground, the eternal now, and have remained there against all ravages of time. Maybe this is Blondie's genius." - New York Magazine
"...the latest reunion of this great New York band still holds many charms...synths buzzing like neon, reggae barely winking at dancehall, and Debbie Harry intoning lyrics in French and Spanish...enough irresponsible momentum and guitar grime to erase the feeling that it would all sound better live." - SPIN
