Blondie have announced British tour dates for the autumn of 2017. The new dates follow the iconic New York band’s high-profile support slot for Phil Collins in London’s Hyde Park on Friday, 30 June.

The legendary band will set out on the road on these shores later this year in support of their eleventh studio album, Pollinator, which was issued to sustained critical acclaim in May. The record debuted at number four in the UK charts upon its release and features songs co-written with all-star collaborators including Johnny Marr, Sia, Charli XCX and The Strokes’ guitarist Nick Valensi.

Set to bring the best of Pollinator – as well as their voluminous collection of classic hits including ‘Call Me’, ‘Atomic’, ’Rapture’ and ‘Heart Of Glass’ – to the UK, Blondie will play a show for BBC Radio 2 in London’s Hyde Park on 10 September. They later return for a run of dates beginning in Manchester on 11 November. This jaunt will also take in shows in Birmingham and Glasgow, before wrapping up in London on 16 November.

Blondie’s full UK itinerary is as follows:

10 September – London, BBC 2 Live In Hyde Park

11 November – Manchester, Apollo Theatre

13 November – Birmingham, Barclaycard Arena

14 November – Glasgow, SSE Arena

16 November – London, O2 Academy

Tickets for the new shows go on sale on Friday, 7 July 2017 at 9am.

In conjunction with the band’s upcoming tour and the earlier release of Pollinator, Blondie are also selling special limited edition “Pollinator/Save The Bees” T-shirts. Proceeds from sales of the shirt will go directly to helping raise awareness of the decline in the bee population by promoting organisations dedicated to conserving and improving the health of pollinators through education, consumer empowerment and political activation.

Blondie are currently playing shows with Garbage on the two bands’ Rage And Rapture tour of North America. The tour is shortly due to swing through Los Angeles where Blondie and Garbage play the legendary Hollywood Bowl on 9 July.
