Comments (0)

Blondie have confirmed a very special tour of the nation's woodlands next summer, performing their hits as part of the Forestry Commission's annual concert series Forest Live.

Blondie, famous for producing innovative music with their rock/disco, reggae and hip-hop influenced songs, are fronted by pop icon Deborah Harry. The band's ground-breaking material brought them a stash of hits 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 and Maria.

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

Forest Live is an independent programme organised by the Forestry Commission. Income generated from ticket sales is spent on improving the local forests for both people and wildlife.

Blondie with special guests The Lightning Seeds will be performing on Friday, June 14, at Sherwood Pines, Nr Cliptsone, Notts. Tickets: £36 (subject to booking fee) go on sale at 9am on Friday, December 7, from the Forestry Commission. Box office: 03000 680400 or online at www.forestry.gov.uk/music
