Shared by

Rewind back to the late seventies and early eighties to enjoy hits such as Heart of Glass, when legendary American band Blondie roll into Tasmania on December 1.

The band led by the iconic Debbie Harry will be headlining Sydney's Homebake festival, and have also announced additional tour dates for Hobart, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Townsville.

Promoter Andrew McManus said: "I’m so excited to bring Blondie back to Australia. They enjoyed their first taste of success here back in the ‘70s and have a legion of fans awaiting their return."

"Deborah Harry is like no other front-woman in the industry – fans can expect a first-class show."

Emerging from the punk and new wave scenes of New York in the late seventies, the band have established themselves as pop culture phenomenons selling over 40 million albums internationally in a career spanning 37 years.

They are known for popular hits such as One Way or Another, Call Me, Rapture and The Tide Is High, with their success recognised in 2006 where they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Blondie will be taking the stage at an all-ages show at the Derwent Entertainment Centre in Glenorchy with tickets on sale October 9 from Ticketmaster.
