The iconic multi-platinum selling punk and new wave band BLONDIE, fronted by co-founder and lead singer Debbie Harry, will be featured in a new hour-long installment of the popular music series SOUNDSTAGE.

Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2006, the New York City-based Blondie, co-founded by singer Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein, defined the punk and new wave era in the mid-late 1970s, and they are just as edgy and trendsetting today. Blondie’s influence shaped and continues to inform the worlds of music, fashion, and art. They helped push punk onto the dance floor at the dawn of the new age era and introduced a wider audience to hip-hop sounds, all the while building a catalog of enduring pop hits along the way.

In this rocking concert captured in December 2015 for PBS in WTTW’s intimate Grainger Studio before a live audience, Debbie Harry and her band share their eclectic mix of pop, rock, and punk sounds on SOUNDSTAGE, performing hits such as “The Tide is High,” “One Way or Another,” and “Heart of Glass.” Audiences will thrill to the stunning visuals and palpable energy that Blondie brings to this electrifying, once-in-a-lifetime performance.
