MUSIC trailblazers Blondie, widely regarded as one of the most influential bands of all time, are heading to West Yorkshire for a concert at The Piece Hall, Halifax.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame icons – whose chart-topping and era-defining career has seen them sell more than 40 million albums worldwide – play the historic venue’s outdoor courtyard on Sunday, June 9.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday, December 15, via Undeniably one of the most influential bands of all time, Blondie – fronted by pioneering singer-songwriter Debbie Harry – became one of biggest punk/pop crossovers the world had ever seen.

Founded in New York in 1974, they metamorphosed from an irreverent Lower East Side punk outfit to bona fide international ambassadors of New York cool.

Through the ground-breaking rock-disco hybrid Heart of Glass, the equally influential hip-hop fantasia Rapture, the stalker-love song One Way Or Another and the lilting calypso The Tide Is High, Blondie’s sound is unmistakeable and timeless.

Blondie join Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds in the line-up, who were announced by the Piece Hall earlier this month.

Meanwhile, Richard Ashcroft, Tom Jones, Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Sheryl Crow, Jess Glynne, Fatboy Slim, PJ Harvey, Underworld, Tom Odell, Pixies, IDLES, McFly, Loyle Carner and Status Quo among the headliners for Live at The Piece Hall 2024 – with more to be announced.
