Blondie has announced they will play Thetford’s Forest Live shows next summer with support from special guests, The Lightning Seeds.

The band, fronted by pop icon Deborah Harry, has confirmed they will play at Thetford Forest’s summer concerts next June.

Blondie emerged from New York’s celebrated new wave scene producing innovative music with their rock/disco, reggae and hip-hop influenced songs.

Their ground-breaking material brought them a stash of hit singles such as Denis, (I’m Always Touched by Your) Presence Dear, Picture This, Dreaming, Union City Blue and Rapture.

Few acts can match their 20 year span of number one’s from Heart Of Glass, Sunday Girl, Atomic, Call Me, The Tide Is High to Maria.

Their singles success complemented by more than 40 million album sales that include classic recordings like Plastic Letters, Parallel Lines and Eat to The Beat has ensured worldwide superstar status for this pioneering band.

Special guest each evening will be The Lightning Seeds performing an acoustic set of their perfect pop songs like Pure, Lucky You and Change.

Forest Live is an independent programme organised by the Forestry Commission bringing music to new audiences, income generated from ticket sales is spent on improving the local forests for both people and wildlife.
