Blondie & Devo
WHIP IT TO SHREDS TOUR
Tuesday, September 25 at 7:30pm
at the Palladium
Blondie first gained fame in the late 1970s, and has so far sold over 60 million records with hits including "Heart of Glass," "Call Me," and "The Tide is High." The band was a pioneer in the early American punk rock and New Wave scenes. The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall in 2006.
Devo was one of new wave's most innovative and (for a time) successful bands, while also perhaps one of its most misunderstood. Formed in Akron, OH, in 1972, Devo became a cult sensation, helped in part by their concurrent emphasis on highly stylized visuals, and broke through to the mainstream with the smash single "Whip It," whose accompanying video was made a staple by the MTV network.
Together, while the pioneering bands of new wave music played different styles during their heyday, they've found common ground for a short U.S. tour that vibrates with 1980s nostalgia.
