Blondie & Cyndi Lauper On Tour Together

Blondie & Cyndi Lauper headline A Day On The Green April 2017

They're two of music's most iconic artists, the wondrous BLONDIE and the bewitching CYNDI LAUPER.

In a world first, these two amazing artists are teaming up to co-headline an absolute cracker of an Australian tour in April 2017. They will play A Day On The Green winery shows nationally and in conjunction with Frontier Touring arena shows in Melbourne and Sydney. As co-headliners the bands will alternate in closing the shows.

BLONDIE had a big impact on CYNDI LAUPER when she was a young artist, and still to this day Debbie Harry is her hero. She says Debbie was 'really cool' and the band were the true trailblazers of the new wave and punk scenes in New York.

The two New York natives are excited to be touring together, with Debbie Harry guaranteeing they'll be performing their timeless hits that are still popular today. Both have enjoyed great success for four decades escaping the usual clichés of women in rock, and are unquestionably two of the most important and influential women to have graced the stage.

The shows will boast an equally impressive under-card with The Clouds reforming especially for the tour and exciting new talents Montaigne and Alex Lahey.

BLONDIE emerged from the late 70's New York punk scene and quickly became music, style and pop culture icons selling more than 40 million albums worldwide and becoming Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame inductees. They scored hits with reggae, rock, disco, hip hop and pop songs bursting with great hooks and brilliant iconic lyrics. 'Heart Of Glass' was BLONDIE's first US #1 in 1978 opening the floodgates to a run of 14 Top Ten US hits including 'The Tide Is High', 'Call Me', 'Rapture', 'Picture This', 'Rip her To Shreds', 'Hanging On The Telephone', 'Union City Blues' and 'Atomic', racking up a phenomenal five US and five UK number one singles.

Fans will be thrilled to learn that BLONDIE – including founding members Debbie Harry, guitarist/song-writing partner Chris Stein and drummer Clem Burke along with the rest of the band, have just completed a new as yet untitled album to be released in March 2017.

Thirty-three years and fifty million album sales since her debut, the ever-versatile CYNDI LAUPER, one of only 20 people to earn Emmy, Grammy, and Tony awards, shows no sign of slowing down. Her celebrated musical journey took an unexpected southern turn on her acclaimed 11th studio album 'Detour' released in May this year, where CYNDI puts her signature spin on a dozen classic country songs. On 'Detour' the unpredictable siren proves once again that her magnificent voice can bring to life any genre of music.

Australian fans have of course loved CYNDI since her 1983 debut solo album 'She's So Unusual' and its hits 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun', 'Time After Time', 'She Bop' and 'All Through The Night'. She was in Melbourne to attend the opening night of a project dear to her heart, the extraordinary musical 'Kinky Boots', for which she wrote the music.

All artists on this tour will feature a female lead singer, with A Day On The Green previously supporting the She Who Rocks tour, dedicated to highlighting women who have shaped rock music and in doing so have motivated and inspired. She Who Rocks digital channels boast huge engagement by passionate fans, while a compilation album hit the ARIA Top Ten. The brand actively supports and promotes relevant Australian tours and music releases with a focus on women in the industry, always with a positive message.

Don't miss what promises to be one of the concert highlights of 2017!
