Blondie | BOOTLEG BLONDIE
Blondie Tribute Friday 22nd June 2018
Debbie Harris, lead vocalist of Bootleg Blondie, has the looks, the voice and the attitude of the original Blondie bombshell and like her heroine is typically outrageous on stage. Debbie has been known to wear dustbin liners, thigh length boots and t-shirts with more holes than t-shirt! Debbie’s pride & joy is her guitar that she plays at every show and is signed by all the Blondie members.
BOOTLEG BLONDIE is the official Debbie Harry & Blondie tribute band, the only Blondie tribute to play the legendary CBGB’s in New York City and to have the honour to be mentioned on Blondie’s 11th studio album ‘Pollinator’.
Debbie Harris and the boys have met the REAL Blondie and are officially endorsed by the band. Debbie Harry got in touch in 2006 when she heard we were playing CBGBs in New York City to wish us good luck with our show and when Clem Burke, Blondie’s charismatic drummer, found out that they were making a replica of his Premier drum kit, he arranged for them to meet him to sign their drum kit which they use at all their shows. ‘During the 2010 Blondie tour of the UK they took Clem out for a trip around London in their tour bus, he signed that too!!!!’
In 2016 Clem Burke went along to a Bootleg Blondie gig and actually got up and played drums on stage with the band! He said afterwards that watching and playing with Bootleg Blondie was very emotional. Well Bootleg Blondie were very touched by Clem’s presence!!!
Blondie will be opening the event on Friday 22nd June on the main stage just after 3:00pm, followed by; Little Mix, Ed Sheeran, Rag & Bone Man, David Bowie and ABBA, don’t miss your chance to see these award winning performers!
