Blondie’s Debbie Harry and Chris Stein announce rescheduled UK tour dates

Blondie’s Debbie Harry and Chris Stein have rescheduled their Q&A ‘In Conversation’ tour.

Having been added to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for their work with Blondie, Harry and Stein have remained extremely close in both a personal and professional capacity since the early ’70s and continue to create music through the band since their reformed in 1997.

Having released their most recent album, Pollinator, in 2017, Harry and Stein have been busy working on their side projects. Alongside their musical success, Stein and Harry have often collaborated in the art world with Stein’s hugely popular photography books of which the Blondie lead singer has been heavily included.

Now, for the first time, the Blondie co-founders have decided to hit the road in a conversational sense with a string of Q&A tour dates were originally scheduled to begin in April. “I’ve always loved the way Chris tells stories,” Harry said in a statement. “I think you will too.”

Now, however, the Blondie duo has rescheduled their tour dates to November amid the current coronavirus crisis. “We’re sending all our love to our friends in the UK. We’re thinking of you all,” they said. “We were very
excited to bring our In Conversation tour to you. But safety must always come first.

“We are looking forward to picking up the conversation on the other side of this current
challenge. Please take care and we’ll see you soon.”
